Handzus postgame quotes

Michal Handzus’ postgame thoughts…

(on his goal…)
HANDZUS: “I was coming in, but I was thinking Poni [Alexei Ponikarovsky] might throw it in. The goalie was outside the crease, so I was kind of coming in and looking for the puck. It hit my stick and I was able to redirect it. It was a great play by those two guys, Simmer [Wayne Simmonds] and Poni, and obviously Mitchell too. He found a lane to get it to the net, and it was a scramble after that.”

(on whether anything in particular was said after the tying goal…)
HANDZUS: “Not really. Obviously we were disappointed. We don’t want them to score that late, but after those goals we’re always talking about the next shift, to have a good next shift. There’s no panic. We’ve got a lot of confidence right now. Obviously it’s not great that they score, but we had to keep going. It was a 2-2 game on the road, so we just played the situation.”

(on winning in regulation…)
HANDZUS: “I think it’s huge. We didn’t want one of those three-point games, obviously. It’s huge that we won in regulation, and we jump a little bit ahead of them.”
