We won tonight but I made more mistakes than I did in some of the past games. When you lose as a goaltender you're definitely under a magnifying glass. Just to get a win maybe put that whole (slump) behind me.
I didn't even know about it. I'm sure he didn't play as many games as we did this month (16), but Bernie Parent ... that's pretty cool.
I don't really read that stuff, but I'm sure he's probably trying to get in my head.
It's a different game being up three goals in the first period. I thought we were flying out there.
I thought it was a playoff-type game, and we played pretty well. Like I've said before, I've got to come up with some more saves.
As an athlete, you have confidence in yourself all the time. I didn't really realize I was going to play this long.
Sean Burke was a huge idol of mine as a kid, so I was really excited to play against him. I'm excited every time I get a chance to play right now. It's a new experience for me.
(The shutout) is exciting too because I haven't had one in a long time, ... We played really well and buried some chances we had and limited their scoring chances. I just want to win games and hopefully I'll get more opportunities to do so.
We're in a battle with Buffalo for the top spot in the division and with Carolina for top spot in the conference. It's an exciting time of the year. With those teams not slipping up very much, we can't afford to either. We've been playing really solid since the break.
Time goes by fast for me right now. It's fun to hang out with the guys and know that you're going to get in there.

Ten days on the road is a long time. We wanted to bear down today. It will be nice to get back to our own beds for a few nights.
We've put ourselves in a good spot, but it's not said and done. We've still got to finish it off. We realize at home is our best opportunity to do that. We've just got to re-focus for that game.
Better than being complacent. It's a fresh start for us. You can see that in the boys ... it's an opportunity to put ourselves in a good position going into the playoffs.
They want to see wins and it was a tough night. It's understood you don't want to get booed but they were cheering when I was winning so that's part of being a fan.
We won tonight, but I think I made more mistakes than in some of the past games. I felt a bit better and felt more comfortable seeing game-type plays. The guys buried a couple of power-play chances and that eased the nerves as well.
I have to make those stops.
I had three weeks to prepare for one game. You'd like to think when you have the opportunity to prepare for three weeks, I could go out and make some big saves. The other guy outplayed me. I feel accountable to the other guys. We're fighting for first place. It's disappointing.
We were flying out there, it was a playoff type game and we took it to them. I've said it too often, but I've got to make some saves.
Being a young guy, I'm just going in there and want to make the simple saves and play solid in there. With the team we got here, I think we stand a good chance.
I thought we were flying out there. That magic that a lot of these guys have, you could see it ... when we got chances, we buried them.
By their reaction and the referee calling it right away, I thought it was in. I'll take it. It's a good bounce, for sure. Luck was on our side tonight.
You work for the bounces you get. Luck was on our side, definitely.
I'll take the good bounces for sure. Luck was on our side, definitely.
Starting out, you just want to make a good impression and play your best,
