Brown postgame quotes

Dustin Brown’s postgame thoughts…

(on not claiming home-ice advantage…)
BROWN: “We could have finished fourth, and now we’ll finish seventh or eighth. But at the end of the day, we’re in the playoffs and it’s a new season. We’re going to hit the reset button and get ready to go, because now all the 82 games we just played are irrelevant.”

(on facing either Vancouver or San Jose…)
BROWN: “Vancouver and San Jose are top teams. Vancouver has been the top team all year, so it only makes it more difficult, but it’s the NHL playoffs. I don’t think there’s going to be an easy series for anybody. Chicago is going to be seventh or eighth, too, I believe, so when you look at it from that standpoint, the 1 and 2 teams are probably not real happy. There are no easy series. We put ourselves in this position. Now we’ve got to go from there.”

(on what needs to improve going into the playoffs…)
BROWN: “We need 20 players every night. We don’t have the type of team that can get by if we don’t have everyone. We need everyone going, and secondly we need to find ways to score goals. The first one kind of leads to the second one. If we have everyone going, it kind of makes it easier on everyone to produce chances and goals. We need 20 players.”
