Richards postgame quotes (March 9)

Mike RIchards’ postgame thoughts…

(on not holding a third-period lead…)
RICHARDS: “We should have confidence playing with the lead, especially in the third period. I made a couple mistakes that I don’t usually make, and the pucks ended up in our net. It’s frustrating, to say the least. It’s something that we have to learn from and work through. We don’t have time to dwell on it now. We have to learn from it and correct it and move on and look forward to Sunday.’’

(on his recent play…)
RICHARDS: “It’s frustration with everything. Not scoring, and I put a big emphasis on keeping the puck out of the net. To make uncharacteristic plays like that, it’s… I’m a leader in the dressing room, and to make plays like that, like I said, there’s not time to dwell on it. We have to move on and get ready for Sunday.’’

(on trying to get back on track…)
RICHARDS: “You can’t take a step back. You have to move forward. As tough as it is, we just have to show some character in this dressing room, in terms of what we can do and how we’re going to move forward and hopefully get better.’’
