We’ve seen, not only this year, but other years and other series, that the last one is the hardest one to get. Maybe we don’t need to so much focus on it being the fourth win, as much as just coming out and playing a good game.
You can see I came really close, but didn’t want to give up. Just tried to go to the point, Soupy ended up being there. And it was funny how this worked out - I saw it in the air, thinking it was going to go in but I was just still trying to go to the net as quick as I could.
This is playoffs. You’ve got to do whatever it takes.
We can say all we want in the dressing room and to you guys in the media, but at the end of the day, it’s just us going out there and playing for each other and doing the right things and playing more consistent, shift in, shift out.
We took it as a new season. We closed the chapter; opened a new one a couple of days ago.
The crowd… Boston fans have been great. In the playoffs it’s like another level. It’s really fun to play in front of those fans and I expect it to be the same thing tonight; I’m looking forward to it.
We feel refreshed, we start new. You work so hard just to get here and get the chance to be here in the playoffs. Now it’s about taking care of business. It starts from Game One.
You’ve got to realize what was at stake and what slipped away, but frustration’s not going to get you going in the right direction. I think it’s more, I’d rather see determination vs frustration; determination of wanting to turn it around and that’s what we’re trying to do here.
First shift I was like, ‘Bergy, I appreciate you a lot more right now’
