Post Game Quotes:

Head Coach Todd McLellan: "It was different coming from behind. We have been behind in a game, but it was early in the game. I thought we played three different games tonight-- we played the first six or seven minutes and played well. And then we got a little sloppy, a little cute, got away from what we needed to do. We talked about it at the break and regrouped in the third. Fortunately, we got some power play time which also helped us hem them in a little bit."

Joe Thornton: "They played hard. They came at us. Even though we scored the first goal [early], they came right back." Thornton (on Burns' GWG): "You know I heard him. As soon as I got the puck, I just kind of threw it in the area and he beat the defenseman to the back of the net and buried it."

Brent Burns: "We know it's not going to be like that all the time. They are a great team. We are pretty confident in our team that we can win those [close] games. It's always good to get a couple of those in there, but at the end of the day it's just two points."

Patrick Marleau: "We found ourselves down after one period tonight. It was a good challenge for us. We made a couple of mistakes, and they capitalized on it. They are good enough of a team to make us pay for it."

Head Coach Paul MacLean: "I Think Robin Lehner played real good. He gave us a chance. We cant continue to take penalties, the undisciplined type of penalties we take. We just cant do it, have any type of success and again tonight we took way too many penalties we didn't have to take and we cant expect our goalies to kill them off so we have to be much better."

Paul MacLean (on penalty trouble): "For the most part we ended up getting away from the things that make us successful then we started taking penalties. When you start taking penalties all it does is suck the life out of your team and gives them tons of momentum.

Jason Spezza: "We definitely have to cut down on the penalties. I'm sure it will be talked about, we've talked about it already but for whatever reason we are finding ourselves on behind on the man advantage a little too often so early in the year we have to make sure we adjust to it."

Bobby Ryan: "We stressed that they were going to come out hard. They scored in the first minute or minute ten or whatever it is and that is not the start you need in a building like this. You need to weather that storm right out of the gate. We did not do that, we were playing chase hockey." "I thought for a lot of the five on five pace of the game we did a pretty good job, not early, but we picked it up and found our way. Western conference teams play well at home at home. They throw a lot of pucks at the net and was just not enough to get it done."

Robin Lehner: "They are good, good passers, you have to look behind you all the time, they are good at screening, tipping, rebounds, and everything but I think we did a good job overall."
