Simmonds postgame quotes

Wayne Simmonds’ postgame thoughts…

(on the close victory…)
SIMMONDS: “We played a hard-fought game, defense first, and it was a 2-1 game until that empty-net goal. I think we battled hard down low and we tried to get to the net and create a lot of rebound opportunities.”

(on holding on before the third-period goal…)
SIMMONDS: “At one point, they bombarded us with shots, and we held in there strong. Quickie did well and I think we were defensively responsible and it came out right.”

(on his goal…)
SIMMONDS: “Just a little give-and-go play with Jonesy, and I just turned around. I was kind of skating backwards and I just fired at the net. I just saw a scuffle in front of the net and luckily it went in.”
