On Pittsburgh’s special teams play:
I think they’ve got the best power play in the league. We can’t take penalties against these guys and obviously give them the opportunity to go up a man. Obviously that really works a few guys on the PK. It gets us out of our rhythm. Obviously we can’t do that.
On Pittsburgh’s penalty killing:
I think we have to take more of a focus on getting shots. I don’t think we’ve kind of gotten away from that in the past couple of games and its’ a tough thing to do these days. Teams are really trying to get big blocks and we’ve just got to work around it and make quick decisions and get the puck through.
On Marc-Andre Fleury:
He’s a really good goaltender. I thought we had some good opportunities. He came up with some big saves. They played well tonight.
On his adjustment to being paired with Robyn Regehr:
As a hockey player, you’ve got to be able to play both sides. Throughout the year, it’s no different than last year or the year prior or next year. Things are going to happen and I pride myself in being able to play both sides. Robyn has been awesome. He’s a great player. He’s really easy to play with. He’s helped me both on and off the ice. He’s a good leader. He’s been good.
On whether it is frustrating that a defenseman has yet to score a goal this season:
I kind of touched on it on the power play stuff, but I think that applies to five-on-five too. We’ve got to get more shots through. The D, we’ve got to contribute offensively too and start scoring some goals. That’s obviously something we’ve talked about. I think you’ve just got to keep shooting the puck.
