Williams postgame quotes (Jan. 21)

Justin Williams’ postgame thoughts…

(on not getting a full-team effort…)

WILLIAMS: “When you play a team like Colorado, they’re a run-and-gun team, and if you don’t have everybody working together and wanting the puck and supporting the puck, then you’re just going to be in your end all night. I thought we were in our end a lot. We made our defensemen go back for the puck way too often tonight, and by the time the third period, or late second period, rolls around, they’re tired. They’re going back a lot, they’re getting hit. That’s what they did. Unfortunately, they wore us down tonight in our own arena, which is ultimately very upsetting.’’

WILLIAMS: “Clearly. Clearly. After the game, I said to Quickie, `Hang in there buddy, we’re going to get this.’ I know he’s frustrated, obviously, with the late penalty. He’s frustrated that we’re not scoring goals and supporting him. I’m sure he will never say that, but we’ve got to do that for him as well. We’ve got to get going, and that obviously includes our line as well. If there’s only one line going that night, then they’ve got to score two, they’ve got to score three, and we certainly had the chance to do that.’’
