January 19 postgame quotes: Muzzin, Iafallo

Jake Muzzin, on whether the lack of goals is due to not finishing enough:
I think that has a little bit to do with. You know, I hate to say bad luck, I’m not going to say that. But we had opportunities to score. Not bearing down on our opportunities. I think even the goal we scored tonight, get a puck to the net and get ugly goals. I mean we’ve got to start with those and we’ll carry on from there.

Muzzin, on Jonathan Quick’s play:
It was unreal. It was unreal.

Muzzin, on six-straight losses:
Yeah. We’ve been talking about it and I think we’ve just got to go and play. I mean, losing streaks are going to happen throughout seasons and it’s how you respond to them. So we’ve got to respond.

Alex Iafallo, on what it’s going to take for the team to start scoring more goals:
We’ve got to play a full 60 and I think we’ve got to be consistent with driving pucks to the net and making sure we’re getting to the net and not just going there, you know? I feel like we’ve got to just have a better stick and a have good net presence.

Iafallo, on whether the team needs to play with more urgency:
Yeah, full urgency thoroughout the whole game and, you know, it’s coming. I feel like we’ve just got to stick to our game plan and stay consistent throughout the whole game.

Iafallo, on whether the team needs to start scoring more “ugly” goals:
Oh yeah, those are the goals we need. Especially when you go on a losing streak like this, you’ve got to get those garbage goals. And those gave us momentum and that’s when you start getting confidence.

Iafallo, on how the team is keeping morale up:
Just having fun, you know. I mean at the end of the day we’re still playing hockey, you know. And we’ve got to stay positive on the bench and learn from our mistakes and make sure we’re coming to the rink ready to go.
