Johnson postgame quotes (Jan. 9)

Jack Johnson’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
JOHNSON: “It’s a great feeling to give our goalie some breathing room finally. They’ve been playing out of this world for us all year. It’s nice to kind of give them a break here finally.’’

(on his `Tebow’ celebration…)

JOHNSON: “Hey, you have some fun while you’re scoring,’’ Johnson said. “It’s fun to score, so you might as well have some fun. I was watching the Broncos game with some buddies who flew in from Michigan. They said, `If you score, you’ve got to Tebow.’ I said, `OK, you’re on.’’’

(on the intensity of the game…)
JOHNSON: “It’s fun though. It’s refreshing to play a team like that. Everyone wants to see new teams and I thought it was a fun hockey game.’’

(on playing against Ovechkin…)

JOHNSON: “It’s fun to play against guys like that. It’s just as much fun for us to play against him as it is for fans to watch him. He’s a great player and it’s fun to play a team we don’t see very much.’’

(on bouncing back from Saturday’s loss…)
JOHNSON: “It was important to score some goals. We didn’t score one goal in regulation in two games. That’s pretty frustrating. It’s paying back our goalies, because they’ve been playing out of this world, and giving them some breathing room.’’
