Chicago postgame quotes

Here are some quotes from the Chicago dressing room last night…

(on the game…) “I think that was probably our best team game, as far as finding ways to get through it. Everybody’s sticking together and battling right through it. Crow [Corey Crawford] was great in the net for us tonight, a big win for him and for us and a good way to end the trip. We made both goals in Canada and California, so it was productive.”

(on the goals…) “I think that it’s just a nice play. Putting pucks on the net sometimes works. Great play in the slot by Dunks [Duncan Keith] and transition, a nice little play to end it with Kaner [Patrick Kane] and Sharpie [Patrick Sharp] so we were fortunate in that area but at the same time that we worked all over the ice and it was kind of the trend we’ve shown recently and we keep getting better off these levels, that’s what we’re looking for.”

“I think obviously it was a good trip overall. I think we went 4-2 so it’s pretty good for us to get eight points altogether, and I think with a trip like this, that’s this long, sometimes it’s tough to keep going strong and stay upbeat like we were the last couple of games, so it’s a good way to finish the trip. We get to go home now and it’s a good thing that we’re excited to go back home playing in front of our fans, but overall we need to be happy with this trip. We got to go to Vegas, we got to come to California and we got to play in Canada, so overall we’re 3 for 3.”

(on his goal…) “It wasn’t one of my prettiest goals but I’ll take it obviously. It was a big goal to go 2-0. I was fortunate that they called it a goal because it did hit my stomach and went off, but it’s one of those plays where you see the puck going into the net and I think I need to start doing it more often, just to get it in the net in that area.”

(on the game…) “You just have to stick with it and keep playing hard. I thought our guys did really well in blocking shots and keeping it to the outside and that made it way easier for me.”
