It just got away from us. By the end of the game they wore us down with their size ... We're not built for games like that ... although we certainly had opportunities to get it done.
I'm good at braking,
We definitely have to get reorganized and take a look at all aspects of our game. We have to work harder on our penalty kill. This is a big weekend, and then we have North Dakota after that. (Wisconsin) was a blemish we have to work through and Minnesota won't be any easier.
They hung around. I was a little nervous. We hit a couple posts in the second period, and sometimes those games you end up losing. And we've had some tough times scoring on Saturday nights lately. But one of the key things was we didn't panic when it was 2-1. There wasn't much panic out there.
You worry about generating quality shots. They just kind of grind you away. They don't lose many battles along the boards.
It has been an absolute joy to have them and watch them. Not only are they extremely productive, but they are very durable and very unselfish. Sometimes with big-number guys, they aren't as much into the team concept as these two.
It was a great special teams night for us, just like last night.
I just thought we shot the puck great this weekend. Obviously getting off to a good start, similar to last night, was a big difference for us. Got up six goals, you know. Started taking some dumb penalties ... and they didn't quit.

We weren't getting breaks, we weren't playing well and we were playing some tough teams. We're a little bit on the upswing and our first goal is to finish fourth or fifth in the league, and a secondary goal is to play better hockey.
I thought we shot the puck great this weekend. We had good movement on our power play. We generally have a good power play, but it was very effective tonight.
Am I (going) straight I haven't driven in three years. My parents won't let me,
We wanted to make a difference not only in our local community but in the state as well. It was obvious to us that there was no organized effort in the state to express the needs of young professionals. We will fill that role.
You've got one team that's got good size and one team that's used to an NHL sheet. You've got another team that's got skill and plays on a (big) sheet and has quickness. It probably won't be a black-and-white deal. It'll probably be a blend.
We anticipated the commissioners were going to take this action this morning,
