Brett Sutter, on the difference mentally and on the ice in this game versus the loss in Bakersfield:
I think we just stuck with it more. I thought last game we let off the gas pedal a bit in the third and that’s came back and bit us a few times but tonight I thought guys, we stayed on pucks, stayed forechecking and got rewarded with a win.
Sutter, on the chemistry of his line with Amadio and Brodzinski which has been kept together:
It’s great. They’re great players. Privileged to get to play with them. You just want to go out and work hard, try to create a little space for those guys and let their skills take over. They’ve both been playing great. I’ve kind of been the beneficiary of a few good plays by then and it’s nice that they’ve kept the band together.
Sutter, on what he attributes to the good starts to the first and second periods:
I think probably a little bit of carryover from last game. We were still a little bit frustrated and we knew we wanted to come out and make a statement tonight and a goal on the first shift obviously sets ya up for the rest of the night. I don’t think, even though they had a few goals in there, I don’t think we really changed our mindset the whole night. Kept on the gas pedal and got the win.
Mike Amadio, on the difference mentally and on the ice in this game versus the loss in Bakersfield:
I don’t think we came out very well in Bakersfield there so we had a mentality that we wanted to come out strong and play well and I think we did a good job of that.
Amadio, on what he attributes to the good starts to the first and second periods:
Just getting pucks deep, getting on their D, getting pucks to the net. Obviously with that shot from Dermy, I think we were just doing all the little things right tonight and it worked out for us.
Amadio, on the Sutter-Amadio-Brodzinski line staying together and what’s working well:
We just work well off each other. Me and Sutts can take draws if one of us is struggling and Brodz is really good out there with us too so I think it’s just the chemistry between all three of us. We just click really well.
Amadio, on how the Reign stayed with it during a high-scoring second period:
We just stuck to it obviously. Just getting pucks deep. Doing the little things, getting behind their D, getting shots to the net, getting traffic in front.
Amadio, on where the team stands right now mentally:
I just think we need to be more consistent, obviously. We can’t go in and not know how we’re going to play. We need to come out strong every night and make sure our work ethic is there.
