Gagne postgame quotes (Dec. 3)

Simon Gagne’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
GAGNE: ““Today was a tight game and you are hoping that you find a way to score and you just shoot the puck at the net. I thought we had a good first 20 minutes. We had a lot of pucks on net, a lot of shots. After that, the second period I thought was not very good from our side. We took a lot of penalties and gave them a chance to go on the power play. From that point on, we found ourselves down 2-0. We got a goal late in the second and after that, in the third, we kind of shut down. They played really well defensively and for us, we were OK the last 20 [minutes] but it was not enough to win or tie the game.”

(on playing with Kopitar and Brown…)
GAGNE: “It was our first time together–me, Kopi, and Brownie. I know Brownie likes to go to the net, so you try to create some chances and you try to go out there and get some pucks at the net and make some plays. I thought we had a couple good looks but you have to do it for 60 minutes.”
