Williams postgame quotes

Justin Williams’ postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
WILLIAMS: “You take away a lot of positives from tonight. They came out they way we thought they would, as can be expected in Game 1 of the start of the playoffs. They came out rowdy. They came out with their fans behind them and got an early goal, which is exactly what we didn’t want. We stuck with it, and throughout the latter part of the game, we started to pick it up and kind of take it to them a little bit. Really, in overtime it’s anyone’s game. We had some chances, they had some chances and they ended up winning. But as I said before the game, if you win this, you can’t get too high, and we’re not going to get too low right now. We played well. we came up short, but that just makes the second game a little bit more important.”

(on his game, and his expectations for himself…)
WILLIAMS: “I wasn’t off for very long. I was only off the ice for a couple weeks, so I knew that I would have my legs. I knew that I would have some jump in my legs, which would be important for avoiding checks. I was able to do some things and feel more comfortable as the game went on.”
