March 11 postgame quotes: Jarret Stoll

On the team-wide defensive performance:
“It was sloppy at times, but we had big saves from Quickie when we needed them. It wasn’t pretty, but we found a way to win the game. They had a couple good pushes there, and we expected that. Any team that’s down, we’re going to expect a push from them, and they had a couple of good pushes. So we had to just withstand them, and I thought we did a good job. A couple penalties there, too – it’s usually how the games get called. Sometimes they call the score instead of the game. That’s disappointing, but we did a good job on the kill and just found a way to win.”

On getting sticks in passing lanes:
“Like I said, it wasn’t clean. It wasn’t pretty. It was hack and whack out there a lot of times, and pucks were all over the place. Sometimes it seemed like there were more than one or two pucks out there. You know what? It was what it was, and we found a way to win.”

On Jake Muzzin’s pass that led to his goal:
“It was a great look. He almost had me 10 seconds earlier in that same area. He’s been making good plays since he’s been called up. He’s a great player. He’s making strides every game and just found a hole.”

On getting through the first few minutes of the third period unscathed:
“Yeah, that was huge. But they had a good push…the whole third, and we just had to make sure we kept rolling over, kept fresh, kept our lines going, got it out at our blueline and in at their blueline and tried not to have too many turnovers, because they’re a quick attack team. They stretch the puck out and stretch the play out and have a lot of long, stretch passes that try to catch you, so you’ve got to be on your toes.”
