Johnson postgame quotes (Nov. 3)

Jack Johnson’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
JOHNSON: “If you don’t score any goals, you’re not going to win games. It doesn’t matter how well you play defensively or how well Quickie plays. If we can’t score, we’re not going to win.’’

(on whether the team was uninspired…)
JOHNSON: “No. Everyone here wants to do well. I can’t say anyone is not inspired to play. This is what we do for a living. We want to play hockey and do well, but like I said, if we don’t score, we’re not going to win.’’

(on why the team hasn’t been scoring…)
JOHNSON: “If we had the answers for you, I don’t think we would be in this predicament. Why? I really wish I had a good answer for you. I really don’t. We’ve got a lot of great offensive players in here, a lot of talent. We just, for whatever reason, we’re an offensively challenged team. One goal in three games, that’s pretty tough to win hockey games.’’

(on the lack of scoring opportunities…)
JOHNSON: “It would be one thing if we had glorious opportunity after glorious opportunity, but that’s the trouble because it doesn’t seem like that’s really the case. For whatever reason, we need to try to find a way to be a little more creative, whether it’s kind of — I don’t want to say `taking chances,’ but we have to do something to try to create some offense and score some goals for Quickie.’’
