May 18 postgame quotes: Dustin Penner

On the way the game ended:
It’s always tough to kill a five-on-three, especially in overtime against a team that’s already down two-nothing at home. I don’t think we agree with how it went down, five-on-three, but sometimes the refs miss calls.”

On Logan Couture’s game-winning goal:
“Yeah, I mean he’s a really good player and made a good shot.”

On the team’s overall performance:
“We felt good. I thought we had a good first period. We had a chance in the third to score there. They’re two pretty evenly matched teams. This one stings, but we’ll regroup and recover in time for Game 4.”

On Tyler Toffoli:
“He’s growing day-by-day.”

On whether he had a good vantage point of the goaltender interference call on Trevor Lewis:
“You know, I didn’t because I was watching Richards shoot it. I find it very tough to believe with a player as intelligent as Trevor Lewis that he’d run the goalie. I asked him. He said he got pushed from behind. I believe him, and I’m disappointed that the refs had enough confidence to make a gutsy call like that in the last whatever, 30 seconds in the period. It’s pretty impressive when you have enough gall to guess, because I’m going to look at the tape and I’m going to see if he got pushed, because I know what it’s like to drive the net. Sometimes it happens.”
