June 6 postgame quotes: Dustin Brown

On not being able to hold a pair of leads:
“We gave up a late and an early goal, consecutive periods. We made a couple mistakes, and they found a way to score. But we’ve got to refocus. Game 5 has got to be our only focus now. We can’t look back and change anything that happened tonight. We know what we did wrong, and it’s a matter of going out there and finding a way to win on the road. [Reporter: You talk about what you did do wrong. What did you do wrong?] What we were really good at in Game 3, through the neutral zone. Tonight we had more turnovers, and the transition game for them is really good. We know it. We’ve just got to do it.”

On the home winning streak ending:
“We’re not really worried our consecutive home winning streak at this time of year. It was about finding a way to win, and we weren’t able to do it tonight.”

On heading back to Chicago:
“It’s literally do or die. I mean, you can throw records out. Home record, away record – you throw ‘em out the window when it comes to games like this.”

On the line change that led to Chicago’s game-winning goal:
“I haven’t seen it, so not really. I mean, I think we got caught maybe a little bit outside, but they threw it inside on us for a quick two-on-one. It was again just one of those tiny mistakes that makes a big difference.”

On Chicago’s transition game:
“Their transition is where it gets really hard to handle. You’re ultimately going one way and they’re going another. You just have to learn with the mistakes.”

On playing against a Chicago team with Duncan Keith out of the lineup:
“Our game plan and our attitude doesn’t change regardless of who is in the lineup with them. We came out and got an early goal in the second and gave up a late goal and that’s something you don’t want to do especially with a team like this.”

On a low-scoring game that featured 11 Chicago blocked shots:
“We’ve got to find a way to get more pucks to the net. They played their game well, especially in the third. They limited opportunities and pushed it to the outside. We have to find a way to get into the inside. We have to get our shots by the first guy and they had a lot of blocked shots tonight. You’ve got to get it by at least the first guy because they have layers. If it’s blocked in front of the next you at least have a chance.”
