February 20 postgame quotes: Jeff Carter

On the team’s recent performances:
“A lot of guys stepped up their game…One player’s not going to win a game, right? We’ve got a lot of guys that are filling a lot of roles for us and doing a lot of things, and it’s starting to show with some wins”

On whether he feels that things are beginning to come together:
“Yeah, it’s a step in the right direction. I think we’ve worked hard to kind of round our game out. Obviously it wasn’t where we wanted to be. It’s still not where we want it to be, but we’re going in the right direction here. We’re getting comfortable with winning these close games again. Goalies are playing great.”

On whether the goaltenders’ performances have boosted the team’s confidence:
“Absolutely. Both guys have been playing great for us. They’ve both been working hard, as everybody has, to kind of get their game rounded out. It’s not easy in the shortened season and whatnot. It’s good to see. It gives us a lot of confidence when we know that those guys are at the top of their game back there, so it’s been going well.”

On whether he’s found a nice offensive rhythm:
“I feel good. I’m getting a few lucky bounces here and there. I’m getting some nice setups by my linemates, so it’s been going well.”
