Game 2
“We’re not focused on the end result. We’re worried about our next shift. If you want to break it down even further, it goes to an individual getting ready for the games, doing what you need to do, taking care of your job. It’s one of those things we’re down 2-0, we’re down 4-2. We’ve been down a lot in the playoffs and we’re not focused on tying the game or winning the game. We’re focused on our next shift. You know what, that next shift might be a defensive zone shift where you need to grind it out. We don’t try to tie the game in one shift or come back in one shift, we just play our game. When we do that, we find ways to score big goals.”
-Dustin Brown
