Flames postgame quotes

“We were assertive, we played an intelligent game and we were smart. We did a good job of hounding the puck and being strong on pucks. And our specialty teams; we had three power-play goals and we killed off some big (penalty kills). (Iginla) played a whale of a game (today); just not the fact that he scored. He was just rock solid in a lot of areas. He showed why he is the captain of the team. You can tell he was keyed in right from the start and that just flows through the rest of the guys.”

“It was a good game for us and a fortunate start. We had a good little breakout on the first goal and (Jokinen) found me in the middle, skating on their D with some speed, and I was just trying to use them as a screen, and I didn’t even see it go in. I thought we had a really good game as a team after that. (Coming off of a loss) our attitude was good today and we came here very positive. Nice to have an afternoon game and not have to sit around and wait for it.”

“We played a strong road game. We came here after a pretty weak game at home and we knew we had to play good hockey. It was a close game but we kept doing what we wanted to do – playing our system – and it worked out well.”
