Stoll postgame quotes

Jarret Stoll’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
STOLL: “It was a weird game, I thought. It wasn’t too much of a flow game. There was a lot of neutral-zone stuff and not a lot of penalties, not a lot of power plays. We definitely took advantage of the one we had, to get us going after it was 1-0 for quite some time. We were OK. We relied on Quickie again, to make some big saves, especially in the third. They outplayed us in the third. They were jumping. They were desperate, you could tell that in the third period. We got away with one a little bit.”

(on the fans’ booing of Kovalchuk…)
STOLL: “You just play the game. It was kind of funny to see their reaction. That’s great. I liked it. It was fine. Every time he had the puck, we did a good job of smothering him and making sure we had one or two, or sometimes even three, guys on him. He had nowhere to go. So it was a great team effort defensively.”

(on having the most points in the NHL right now…)
STOLL: “It feels good. We know there is a lot of work ahead of us. We’re 11 games in. There’s definitely tougher hockey and more important games to follow, so we’ve got to keep going, keep getting better. We know we’ve got a good team. We’ve got a lot of positives. We’ve got a lot of character. We’ve got a lot of good things going, but you’ve got to win games too. All that is talk unless you win out there.”
