The quotes

Head coach Darryl Sutter
On how the game unfolded: “I thought we had a really good first period. Second period, our goalie made some saves. You know what, they’re playing a free, easy game. And I think the third we show what we’re capable of doing, just couldn’t score.”
On sticking to the regular lineup and playing 82 meaningful games: “We did. Gotta play close games and we’ve played close games. Hopefully we get a schedule where we don’t have to play Monday. Bullshit. They set up the schedule, we play three in four to finish the year on the road. Makes sense.”

On Dan Vladar’s performance: “That’s his job. Back-to-backs, backup goalie come in, give yourself, your team a chance to win and he did that.”
Mikael Backlund
On how the game unfolded: “Today probably, of the three games, wasn’t the best of the three. But I thought the last two games we really battled hard. Today, came out, had a really good first period, let it slip a bit in the second and made it a pretty tight game in the third, pretty even game. That was our mission. We wanted to keep playing all the way ’til the end and have a good feeling going into the playoffs.”
