November 17 postgame quotes: Tyler Toffoli

On his goal:
I think it hit their D-man in the foot and went in. Obviously their goalie can’t tell what’s going to happen when it goes off their foot. So, like I said, I will take it. [Reporter: That was a nice pass from Mike.] Yeah, I think he took and a peak and then just threw it and I was wide open. As soon as I got it I fired it as fast as I could and good things happen when you put it on net.

On how difficult it is to win a 1-0 game:
It’s tough. You have to play so well defensively. You’re goalie has to play well and it just felt like things kind of fell into place tonight. We had a pretty good game all around and it was fun.

On playing in Madison Square Garden:
Oh it’s awesome. Just going out for warm ups and seeing all the banners and everything. It is really cool and definitely one of the funner places to play. I think last year [in] Chicago was pretty surreal, but this is different. It is older and there is just a lot more to it so it was fun.

On the road trip:
It was good. Obviously we had a tough one in Buffalo to start, but I think we rebounded well. Against the Islanders we had a really good game, big comeback, and then we just kept going from there.

On Ben Scrivens:
Scrivy’s been playing awesome. I mean it is tough that is Quickie out, but Scrivy kind of came in and he’s been playing well so far. So we just need to keep playing well in front of him.

On his scoring:
It’s good. Like I said, you just have to keep putting the puck on net. The more chances you have, you just have to capitalize on your chances. [Reporter: A little bit of puck luck, is that what they are calling it?] I guess so, hopefully it stays with me.
