Stoll postgame quotes (Dec. 3)

Jarret Stoll’s postgame thoughts…

(on the late non-call when his stick was broken by P.K. Subban…)
STOLL: “He [the referee] missed the call. It’s a penalty in any game, any month this year. I’ll watch what I say, but there’s two refs out there. They’ve got to make that call. … I had a conversation with him [the ref] earlier in the game about it, about a slash that I had, when I didn’t break the guy’s stick, and he tells me straight up that if the stick breaks, it’s a penalty. I’m like, `I know, that’s the way you’ve called it all year.’ Whatever, it is what it is. It’s tough that we didn’t get the break on the call.’’

(on not scoring on the early power plays…)
STOLL: “We were moving it really well. Those guys were moving it really well, moving themselves and passing the puck good. I thought Montreal did a great job of getting into lanes. We didn’t really have very many shot opportunities. We looked good, but you don’t want to shoot and get it blocked, and then it goes back either. Whenever that lane is there, you’ve got to take advantage of it. We just couldn’t find it.’’
