Reign Shutout Americans, Take 3-1 Series Lead: Coach Jason Christie Quotes

Christie-Ontario-Reign

After a Game 4 victory, which pushed their series lead to 3-1, coach Jason Christie met with the media and shared the following…

On allowing only one goal in the last three games:

I don’t think that’s a big deal. Yeah, we’ve only given up a goal, but they’ve had some chances. It’s your goaltender coming up big and its defensemen making sure we’re not allowing second and third chances that’s huge.

On the boost from scoring two goals during the second period separated by only 21 seconds:

Its good, its good energy and we build off that stuff. But, the game tomorrow is bigger than the one here today and we’ve got to make sure were ready to go.

On the team with it’s back against the wall being the most dangerous:

Oh, no question. You see it in the other division. That doesn’t mean anything, you’ve got to come out and be ready to play. The other games are done, we’ve got to focus on tomorrow.

On the flow of offense having been penalty free through the first period as opposed to Thursdays game:

Yeah, I think so. I think its something where we have to make sure we continue to move pucks and move our feet. It was a game where we had to make sure we had a good fore-check and we were solid in the D-zone.

On staying out of the penalty parade at the end of the game:

You have to. We have to make sure we don’t get involved in it because we have to play hard. We need to make sure were not giving them chances.

On the message to the team going into tomorrow’s game with a 3-1 lead:

We’ve been through with two other series before. The last game is the hardest one. They’re going back regardless, so they’re going to want to go back with a win. We’ve got to make sure we play the way we can. Be disciplined, and making sure that were doing the right things.
