Post Game Quotes - Jacques Lemaire

Friday, October 29, 2005 versus Columbus

What was the big difference from last night, what did you tell them: 

"I told them we had to be stronger with the puck and work as a team, which we did.  This is exactly how I want them to play.  I know I can't get them to play 80 games like that; as much as I can get it that is what I want."

Even last night Columbus created a lot of traffic and the defense really kept them to the outside of getting those dangerous pucks:

 "At times we blame the defensemen but you know there is a certain job that the center has to do and the winger.  We were stronger on the boards tonight than we were last night.  They save a lot of energy because the puck is not in our end and they don't have to chase people, so that helps them."

Nick Schultz

"I think we did a better job tonight.  Obviously they had a ton of shots last night and we wanted to do a better job of that.  I think that is just not the defensemen.  You can attribute that to the forwards being in a good position and the goaltender has been strong.  Manny played well again.

What is the biggest difference tonight: 

"We talked before the game and Jacques wanted more intensity.  I think that is what we were lacking last game and winning battles.  We play better at home and we need to find that intensity on the road."
