December 28 postgame quotes: Mitchell, Muzzin
Willie Mitchell, on his own performance:
Good. Yeah, I felt good. A couple mistakes…I felt good. I felt good on the penalty kill. I felt good winning battles and stuff like that, but…there’s always more, there’s always room for improvement.
Mitchell, on blocking a Sea Weber slap shot on the 5-on-3:
I wasn’t sure it was him at the time. Off the gear, which is always good with his shot. As we all know, he shoots it hard, so it’s always good when it goes off the gear.
Mitchell, on Nashville’s game-winning goal:
I think we could’ve been maybe a little bit more aggressive at the line because we had numbers, and then it was just a little bit of blown coverage through the middle.
Jake Muzzin, on the emotion of the game’s final three and a half minutes:
I mean, we had time to try and get another one. I mean, you’re always thinking you’ve got a chance. They get one late, and we tried to push and get another one late, but we’ve got to be better five-on-five and create more goals.
Muzzin, on playing Chicago after a difficult loss:
It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter who we’ve got. We’ve got to be better, and a it’s a big challenge, and we should be excited for it.
