Reporter: What's your opinion about this game?
Curt Fraser: That’s the second game that we really struggled defensively. You can see us just not very effective in our end and giving up that 2-minute quality chances, relying on our goaltending too much. And then the chances we got offensively, we had a difficult time scoring.
The penalties tonight caused some issues, but what really hurt us was our power play. It wasn’t very good. So we lost the special team’s battle. We weren’t very good defensively. And that’s the recipe for disaster. For us tonight, it wasn’t good enough. We were trying to come out of this little funk we are in right now. But that’s hard. We lose Bartley halfway through the second period which really hurt us. He has been our best defenseman all year. And we’re just gonna have to find a way to fill that hole.
