Smyth postgame quotes

Ryan Smyth’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
SMYTH: “It’s obviously nice to contribute on the power play. The power play has been lacking as of late, and that can win you or lose you hockey games. Tonight, we capitalized on two, and it was a big win for us overall.”

(on any extra motivation playing in Edmonton…)
SMYTH: “Yeah. It’s a great rink to play in. Great fans. It’s a great atmosphere. People know their hockey here, and it’s always nice to come to Canada.”

(on whether he deflected the second goal…)
SMYTH: “No. I didn’t even get the first one. [laughs] I just try to cause them, that’s all.”

(on having the net presence on the power play…)
SMYTH: “Obviously Jack and Doughty can shoot the puck. When you’re slacking a little bit in the power-play area, you’ve got to get back to basics, and that’s getting the puck to the net.”
