Jacques Lemaire Postgame Quotes

Wednesday, January 18, 2006 versus Toronto

Big win for you guys tonight. 

“We played really well.  We had good intensity, they jumped into the play.  After loosing a few, you want the guys to bounce back, and they did that tonight.  We created quite a few chances with our speed.  When you play well, even if the other team scores, you can continue to do well.  And tonight we had at least 18 of the 19 guys playing well.”

Were you worried at the end when it was 6 on 4?

 “Not really, because I knew we were intense.  I told the guys to bear down on the guy with the puck, and we were able to finish them off.”

Randy Robitaille

You guys seemed to be up for this game?

“We knew we had to play well after last game.  We were playing a good team, and we knew we had to be ready.  We didn’t get down after they scored that short handed goal.  We didn’t feel we played all that bad the last game, but we knew we had to play better offensively.”

What did you guys talk about before the game? 

“We knew we had to come out strong.  I think even the Leaf (Toronto) players knew we would come out strong after the way we played the last game.  All the guys played well tonight.  It was a big win for us.   A lot of people back home are Leaf fans so it was nice to beat them tonight.”
