Jonny Brodzinski, on his shootout move and if that was his plan:
That’s my go-to for pretty much any shootout or anything like that. Maybe don’t put that in the paper but yeah, just fake shot, try to get him to bite either way and either bring it to the backhand or forehand usually works.
Brodzinski, on keeping the energy up after San Diego tied the game late:
It’s obviously tough getting scored on that late, especially [because] we’re fighting for first place right now. I don’t think anybody got down on the bench or anything like that. I think we just kept pushing through. We almost had a couple in overtime and ended up winning.
Cam Schilling, on playing with new teammates:
It’s definitely an adjustment. Takes a little bit to get into the game, especially coming off jet lag and stuff like that.
Schilling, on when he arrived to Ontario:
Uh, I got here probably 10 minutes before we had to be here. Literally my flight landed and Vinny picked me up and we were here in like 20 minutes. Literally got here right before I had to be here, so it ended up working out.
Schilling, on what it’s like jumping into the lineup so quickly:
It helped too, we played this team in Rockford like a week ago so I had actually seen this team which is, usually out West, we don’t see many of those team. You’ve just have to keep it simple at the start and find your legs and figure out how the pace of the game’s going and stuff like that. Just try not to do too much. I felt like my first period, that’s kind of what I tried to do. Didn’t try to do too much and just tried to play good defense.
Schilling, on being able to get a point in his first game.
Yeah. Lucked out on the point but they all count.
Jack Campbell, on why he’s had success (6-1-0) on the back-end of back-to-backs:
I just think we’ve come out as a team and played really well in back-to-backs. That’s a tough challenge tonight. They’re rested, we had a tough game last night. But we came out and played well. They came out pretty well in the first with some power plays and we weathered that storm and continued to play our game. I think our practices are what allow me to stay in really good shape because they’re so up tempo and tough so we’re all in pretty good shape and I think it’s showing.
Campbell, on what goes through his head going into the shootout and how comfortable he feels:
I’ve always liked the shootout. It’s always been something I’ve always enjoyed but obviously it helps to have guys on your team who have some great moves, I see it all the time in practice. We don’t work on it a ton but we play out the rebounds and guys are coming in 1-on-O. We’re always kind of working on it and it’s nice to be on this team. Brodzy made a heck of a move and showed why he’s an All-Star tonight and we’ll take the two points.
Campbell, on whether he thinks the team is finding its way:
I think we’re rolling. We wanna be a little more consistent. If we drop one, make sure we come out and get the next one. Overall, can’t be too mad about being in first place. That’s where we expect to be and it takes a lot of hard work and preparation but that’s what we’ve been doing and I think this team only has better and we’ll just keep getting better as the season goes on.
