POSTGAME QUOTES

San Diego Gulls

Corey Tropp

On the game

We just had a couple of breakdowns there in the third, but they're a good team. They're going to get their chances. Couple little breakdowns, they're a good team and we can't afford to have that.

On the quick turnaround from last night's game in San Jose

I think as players, you'd like to get in a groove of playing more so I don't think that's an issue for us. It's a tough way to play but every team has to travel and go through that stuff. We knew that coming in so I'm not going to use that as anything. We have a lot of guys that go in and out of the lineup so we had some fresh legs tonight. We have a good group and we're in good shape so I don't think that was the issue. We tied that up 3-3 and we just couldn't get it done late.

Head Coach Kevin Dineen

On the game

I think any time we look at all 60 minutes. I think it was a little bit of two different games. We didn't get off to a great start. We had a great pushback and we couldn't just play a mistake-free game right to the end and it ends up costing us. A lot of different ways you can look at it. You can look at it as a decent little road trip, but at the end of it we want to walk out of there with a little better effort than we had today.

On the penalty kill

The penalty kill has been a strength of ours. I think they're really starting to find their rotation and Sylvain (Lefebvre) does a fabulous job with that. That's an area we feel good about and we have to make sure we're as good or comparable (on the power play).

On the quick turnaround from last night's game in San Jose

I don't think that was an issue. Over the course of the year that's really been an up-and-down thing but tonight our shift lengths and I think our energy was high throughout. It was just making sure we stay strong on the execution part of things.
