February 17 postgame quotes: Jarret Stoll

On the challenges presented by Chicago:
“They worked. They moved the puck well and they caused turnovers – some in our zone, lots in the neutral zone. They caused a lot of turnovers in the neutral zone and went back at us. So it’s tough to play like that. It’s grinding hockey when you’ve got to chase the puck like that. We started working harder a little bit as we got some momentum in the third, but by then it was too late.”

On what caused the shift in momentum over the later stages of the game:
“It could be the simplest thing – just getting a good one or two passes or a good chip or a good forecheck just to get our game going. It was a struggle to find support, to have support for each other and to move the puck. We weren’t snapping the puck around like we usually do. They were, obviously.”

On what Jonathan Toews does well in the faceoff circle:
“He’s good. He’s one of the best in the league, and he’s strong on his stick. He spins. He does different things on you. Yeah, he’s a challenge.”
