Ersberg postgame quotes

Erik Ersberg’s postgame thoughts…

(on ending his long losing streak…)
ERSBERG: “I had just played one game this season, so it was easy to keep track. I don’t count going backward.”

(on the game action…)
ERSBERG: “We played a great first period. They didn’t get anything, maybe two long shots from outside. We probably could have had one more goal in the first, but then we got another one in the second. They stepped it up, though, in the second and the third. I think they played pretty well, but we played a great game too, so it’s good to come out on top.”

(on playing his first game after a long break…)
ERSBERG: “You always are a little rusty. Obviously you try to work hard in practice and all that, but it’s a little different to play in the game. The guys helped me out, they blocked some shots and let me see most of the pucks, so that always helps when players do that for you.”

(on Ruutu’s second goal, and whether he changed the angle of the shot late…)
ERSBERG: “I don’t know if it got up on his stick or what. He beat me. I don’t really care if they score 10, as long as we score 11.”

(on facing any pressure to beat a team on a long losing streak…)
ERSBERG: “I heard they had lost a lot of games, and you see the standings too. A team like that is always going to come out working really hard and be desperate, but I think we managed to keep up pretty well.”
