Penner postgame quotes (Nov. 8)

Dustin Penner’s postgame thoughts…

(on his first multi-point game…)
PENNER: “Whatever I was in, I’m glad I’m out of it now. It’s like `Fight Club.’ What’s the first rule? You don’t talk about it. [smiles] It’s something that you knew was there, but you didn’t want to acknowledge. It wasn’t for lack of trying, and doing everything outside of the game to get ready. There were a few injuries that didn’t help me, and maybe got inside my head, but now everything is feeling great.’’

(on overcoming his early injuries…)
PENNER: “It’s not so much physically, because I put the work in in the summer, but I think it’s just mentally.’’

(on getting the win…)
PENNER: “Especially considering what happened the last couple games at home, it was great to get this one out of the way and break that mental block we had.’’

(on the team scoring four goals…)
PENNER: “The first two periods, we had a lot of shots on net, we threw everything at the net, and then the penalty trouble kind of took that away from us, and that tends to happen when you’re up two goals. There’s a lot of stuff that we can take away that’s positive from this game.’’
