JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

-We started with poor execution and ended it with poor execution. Clearly we have some work to do.

-I thought that they did exactly what they wanted to do. They got in on the forecheck. They got in front of the net. We did not defend well enough and we did not manage the puck well enough to get into their end and do what we wanted to do. We'll be looking for an improvement tomorrow night.

-It was a tight game. I think one thing for us is just minimizing the little errors. Those are games that we would like to come out on top, but we'll learn from it and build on it. We'll be ready and prepared tomorrow. It's just like every other game - you've got to show up and work your tail off.

RYAN FITZGERALD - ONE GOAL, ONE ASSIST
