Jacques Lemaire Postgame Quotes

Monday, January 09, 2006 versus Dallas

Too lose a game on a fluky shot on the end boards.  You had a couple go your way, but now to have one go the other way. 

“Well I think we made some little mistakes that we shouldn’t have made.  Starting in the second period.  I think we changed the momentum in the second period with all the penalties that we got.  Starting with too many men on the ice.  You know we get a change, it’s two guys caught out there, they’re tired and instead of getting off in the first door where the defensemen were, they kept gliding along the boards to the other entrance and Wes (Walz) jumped on the ice as usual, and then he got a pass.  And you just can’t touch the puck when the guys still on the ice.  It started with that, and then a little tug here and there that we did, and then I just felt it gave them a little momentum.”

Randy Robitaille

It was tight there.  It looks like the power plays could have made the difference. 

“Yeah, we had our chances no doubt about that.  We took too many penalties ourselves, so special teams were the bread and butter tonight, and we didn’t get it done.”

There were fluky bounces off the end boards.  When they scored the winner, I mean …….. 

“Well, that’s hockey for you.  You know what I mean?  You get one, they get one, I guess it evens out.  Like I said, we had our chances and we didn’t get it done.”

It was a tight defensive battle.  You know there’s not going to be a lot of chances even strength.

“Yeah, we know they played last night and traveled.  I didn’t think they were going to be high flying.  I knew it was going to be a tight game and it was.  It could have gone either way.”
