JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"I thought the first period was okay. We didn't generate much. I think much because of the fact that Hartford was certainly willing to block shots and defend the right way. We were not willing to get pucks and bodies to the net. On the flip side, they were able to get pucks through and obviously they scored a goal.

The second and the third were a real concern. Not a lot of juice there for us - partly, I'm sure, because of the way that Hartford was playing, but also really because our willingness to play inside, block some shots, and win a couple battles was nonexistent for the last two periods. Give them credit. They certainly did all of those things. They were even blocking shots at the end of the third there. It was clearly a case of two teams that were playing polar opposites of one another. One was all-in and our group was not."
