Head coach Darryl Sutter
A succinct summary of how the game unfolded: “She’s tough sledding out there. Ice was bad. Quiet crowd. Everything was tough sledding. Just kinda battled through it. Played hard. Got through it.”
On Johnny Gaudreau’s performance: “He was the best player on the ice, that’s for sure.”
On Jacob Markstrom’s performance: “I thought he was solid. They didn’t have a lot. They’re a team that jams a lot. And then, on that power play goal, that shot, I’ve seen Adam Henrique take that a hundred times, that same play… From that same spot. If you ask Marky, he’d probably like that back, but other than that he was good.”
On scoring the game-winning goal in his 500th game: “That was nice. I had, I don’t know how many chances to do it. I think I hit every defenceman on their team at least once, so it was nice to hit the net.”
