Scuderi postgame quotes

Rob Scuderi’s postgame thoughts…

(on the victory over the Flames…)
SCUDERI: “They’re a real hot team right now. They’ve been playing real well in the last 10, 15 games, and sometimes you have to do that in a course of a game, weather the storm and try to create one of your own. So tonight was no different. I thought Quicker was the difference in net, when they did have those good chances, and we were fortunate to come out with the win.”


(on his first game back…)
SCUDERI: “Pretty good. It was a little rusty at first, more so reading the play and playing with the puck. You finally know when you’re somewhat over an injury when you’re not thinking about it anymore on the ice. That was the first time in a while that I didn’t think about it. I’d say I played decent.”

(on playing with the lead in the third period…
SCUDERI: “When you have a lead, I think it’s a case of not beating yourself. You don’t want to ever just sit back and wait for them to come at you. Starting to get the pucks deep, cycling down in their end and make them come 200 feet. When you’re trying to come back on a team, the last thing you want to do is play defense. You start to take chances, and maybe we can get an insurance goal. But I thought the biggest thing we did was, we didn’t beat ourselves, which is the biggest factor in playing with the lead.”

(on the difference between the first Calgary game…)
SCUDERI: “Obviously it’s different when you’re not playing the game, but having watched it, I just think we battled better tonight. If I remember correctly, it was a pretty close game, and when they started to pull away, we didn’t have any fight left in us to push back a little bit. I thought tonight, even though they were carrying the play for large portions of time, I thought each time we answered with a little bit of our own.”
