Brown postgame quotes

Dustin Brown’s postgame thoughts…

(on winning with a shorthanded roster…)
BROWN: “Obviously we had some guys coming in, playing some big minutes, that maybe aren’t there normally. I thought Elkins played pretty physical, pretty solid, for his first game in the NHL. You’ve got everyone pitching in, and I thought our system play was really good tonight. It makes things a lot easier for us.”

(on losing Jack Johnson in the third period…)
BROWN: “When you lose a player, the players in here don’t really think about it. We had one period to play, 20 minutes, and everyone had to pull a little extra weight. Fortunately, we had Whiskey [Drewiske] playing forward, so it worked out well for us.”

(on him sliding into the boards hard after his goal…)
BROWN: “It just knocked the wind out of me pretty quickly. I was trying to spin so I could stop, and I didn’t make it in time, so I just knocked the wind out of myself,

(on holding on to win…)
BROWN: “Quicker made some big saves for us. They had some pretty good scoring chances, but at the same time I think we played a pretty good game. We got the puck deep. We didn’t have many turnovers. I think the one turnover we had, they ended up scoring on in the third period, so it was a mix of us playing a good game, and they worked hard and got a couple chances.”
