Game Three Postgame Chatter

“ We had the lead going into the third period, set ourselves up for a good third, and unfortunately gave up two instead. ”
- Dan Girardi
“ We were in our own zone way too long because I couldn't win a friggen draw. We want to put them in their zone, get some offensive zone time that way. It's a lot of pressure for our D and it's a lot of zone time for them to try and get up in the rush and create offense in our end. ”
- Brian Boyle
“ We get a tough bounce on that (game-deciding) goal. That's the playoffs in a nutshell--you don't get a bounce your way, and they get the bounces their way sometimes. ”
- Ryan Callahan
