Alex Edler & Todd McLellan 11/22 Post Game Quotes
Yeah, I think we had a good first and I think it was kind of the opposite in the second, they had a good second. We scored two, they scored three, and then we battled back and tied it up, but they scored right after. Its hard when youre trailing.
Edler on the backbreaking nature of the fourth goal, 50 seconds after the Kings tied it
We always talk about those shifts right after a goal, its tough when you work hard and tie it up and then they get one right after. Those things happen.
Edler on seeing his partner, Sean Walker, get his first of the season
Yeah, that was very nice. Hes been really close for a while, so it was nice to see him get one.
Edler on how he feels through 20+ games this season and if hes had any conversations with Todd McLellan about his minutes
We talked a little bit before the season, but I think Ive been around 15 or 16 minutes up until the last few games, but thats what happens when someone gets hurt, other guys get more ice time. I feel good, my body has felt good all season long so Im ready to play whenever Im needed to play.
Todd McLellan on his takeaways from an up and down game
We had a real good push in the first, I thought we were an aggressive team, we were on our toes a little bit, we were connecting passes and plays. The break came, we went out and the first two shifts of the period we gave up pretty good scoring chances, so they came with their push and we didnt respond really well. I thought after that, we sat back a little bit, we were slow, we didnt connect on the passes that we were connecting on in the first period. You have to give them credit, they pushed, but their push was a lot stronger, a lot more aggressive than ours in the second. Third period came on, I thought it was a pretty even period. We scored, obviously we were excited about that and then all of a sudden, boom, its out, the air is out of your sails again. Our game tonight has matched our year, where were inconsistent, were up and down. Whether its within a game, whether its two-game segments, one-game segments, back-to-backs, were still searching for that.
McLellan on the difficulty of getting back to it after the fourth goal against came so quickly
Its hard. Both of these games weve had to fight and claw from behind, which also sounds strange because we had the lead in tonights game, but once we got back in and we were fighting and clawing our way there, you could feel a little momentum building. We scored the goal, we get that big save and then 50 seconds later its in our net again on one that we should probably have. Its tough, but youre not always dealt an easy task or an easy game and you should be able to push back. I thought we sagged a little bit when we could have pushed a little harder.
McLellan on expecting a push from the Rangers when they got it in the second period
I think you have to expect that, were in the NHL, just like we responded in the third. I thought we came out and played an aggressive game. Teams get the opportunity to regroup between periods and the good, consistent teams are able to keep it at an even keel. They also scored at the 18-minute mark in the third period, so a lot of that set us back, but we were able to regain it in the third. We didnt have it between the first and second.
McLellan on if he felt Cal Petersen should have had the fourth goal, and his play overall
Yes he does, Cal has to make that save, Cal made some outstanding saves and the difference is Cal was playing without a stick, we had two broken sticks, Edler blocked it and Cal punched it out. If that goal goes in, maybe we recover, I dont know. The one that we did let in took a lot of life on our team. He stopped a breakaway after that. We mishandled the puck at the blueline and Cal made some really good saves. Sometimes its the one that you need, rather than all the ones you made, that makes a difference in the game and we needed that one.
