Reporter: Please comment on tonight's game.
Curt Fraser: We knew it would be a difficult game. But at the same time, we made a few changes in our system play and try to tweak a few things for the future that will help us. Tonight was a game we had to work through that and get comfortable with it. Fortunately for us, we had a great goaltending. I think we scored some timely goals. 2 power play goals tonight were huge.
It was great to see Magee get his first goal tonight. That was huge. It was awesome. The kid has been working extremely hard to find a role in our lineup. And that was a great shot, a good goal. Then our defense… We asked a lot of them and one of the things is getting involved more offensively. Chelios scored a goal tonight and it was huge. So a great team effort. Didn’t like the last 2 minutes. The 2 calls were… I guess you are gonna fell into that trap.
Over all, I thought first period was a rough start. Second period was better. Third period was really good. So hopefully that’s a good sign for our future.
This was a huge game for our team tonight. We gotta keep climbing the ladder here in the standing. We got a lot of teams fighting for a playoff spot. Just wanna look after ourselves to keep playing well and keep finding a way to get more points.
And we’re gonna come out tomorrow night and enjoy this game because we’re not gonna play at home for another month. It’s a long road trip. But finish with a great win tomorrow night would really be good for all the fans and our team and everybody.
