Ponikarovsky postgame quotes

Alexei Ponikarovsky’s postgame thoughts…

(on his game…)
PONIKAROVSKY: “I had a couple of injuries at the start of the year and I’m kind of recovering after it. It’s a normal process and you just have to go through some tough times. Today, everybody had a good effort. We put a lot into the game so it was just a great win before the break and everybody is happy and I am as well.”

(on his goal…)
PONIKAROVSKY: “Yeah. we really hung in there. It was a pretty long (shift) and when you have those guys in the zone like that, you just have to stick there because you have to try and out-battle them, basically, and put the puck in the net. You basically wear them down and they all were tired at the end of the shift, but we were lucky to just battle and put it in.”

(on sustaining momentum, going forward…)
PONIKAROVSKY: “It’s going to be a little tough after the break. I think everybody in this room knows what needs to be done, in terms of system and effort, so I think everybody is ready for it. We just have to go in and win as much as we can.”
