Johnson postgame quotes

Jack Johnson’s postgame thoughts…

(on winning division games…)
JOHNSON: “It’s huge. We’ve got to win our Western Conference games, and particularly in our division, and try to keep the gap going between us and everyone else in our division. We’re just working to try to catch San Jose at this point. They’re a great hockey team, and if we can stay close to them throughout the entire year, if not pass them, we will be pretty successful going into the playoffs.”

(on the difference between the previous Phoenix games…)
JOHNSON: “I thought, in the second period, it was pretty up and down. Then in the third period, both teams limited their turnovers. I thought, in the second period, both teams had pretty good chances, particularly us. We just didn’t happen to score on them. That’s why it was a low-scoring game. I definitely think both teams had a fair amount of chances.”

(on the fatigue after back-to-back games…)
JOHNSON: “After a certain point, you don’t think about it. You’re just playing. Particularly in overtime, 4 on 4, that’s really pretty fun hockey and an exciting pace and a time to be real creative. At that point, you’re not really thinking about it. It hits you more after the game.”
