April 22 postgame quotes: Dustin Brown

On how he assesses the Game 3 loss: Not good enough. I mean at this point, this series, we needed to find a way to win a game, and that didn’t happen so now we’re in a bigger hole and we have to figure it out.

April 22 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the team’s effort being better than the first two games, but “not quite enough”: Not quite enough.
