On any positives from the comeback, and whether it helps the team “build towards the playoffs”:
Just what you said. It’s not ‘building towards the playoffs.’ We’re trying to play next Wednesday. We hung in there and got some goals, got a point.
On driving to the net and generating opportunities as the game progressed:
We wanted to get more shots than we had prior against Calgary. I you watched those games, we had 23, 24 shots. We wanted to get more shots, and we did.
On how Marian Gaborik has influenced the team’s possession efforts:
He’s a top player in the league. He’s a top offensive guy. He was good again tonight. He was our best player tonight, that’s for sure.
On how the team has played down the stretch:
It’s not ‘down the stretch.’ It’s at the wire. [Reporter: Happy with your team’s effort tonight? Does the shot clock reflect how you played?] Yeah, I think so. [Reporter: An important point?] I’m concerned with how we’re playing.
