What they said:

Rod Brind’Amour on the close win after leading 3-0 in the first period:

“Trash it, move on. I don’t know that we’ve played maybe a worse game ever. But I give them (LA) credit. I mean, they outplayed us – start to finish. We scored on every chance we had, basically. But the game is just so hard when you’re in the box the whole game. It just had no flow and it’s a disgusting game, really. So we’re going to just trash it, move on. Thankfully, we get to play tomorrow.”

Brind’Amour on team’s defensive play:

“You  know,  there’s  a  game  plan.  You’ve  got  to  follow  the  way  you  have  to  play. Just  the  sleepiness  on  D-zone  cover,  just  watching  D  go  backside  when  we  know  they  can  do  that – just  pick  them  up.  It’s  not  hard – over  and  over  and  over.  Those  are  just  things  that  are  just,  you  know,  we  don’t  do.  So  we  got  away  with  one  tonight  and,  you  know,  we’re  about  getting  points.  I  mean,  that’s  this  league.  Two  points  are  going  to  count  the  same.  We  won’t  look  back  at  this  and  go,  you  know,  we  much  rather  win.  But  that  wasn’t  good.”

Goaltender Frederik Andersen on Jordan Martinook’s shootout winner:

“I’ve  seen  him  do  that  when  he  practiced  on  me.  I  think  he’s  more  skilled  than  people  get  to  give  him  credit  for.  He  provides  a  lot  of  energy  for  us,  and  he  can  score.  So  that’s  cool  to  see  him  finish  on  a  nice  move  like  that.”
