Stars-Wild: Postgame quotes

Here are some postgame quotes after the Dallas Stars lost 1-0 to the Minnesota Wild Sunday night.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan on the game

“I thought our start needed to be better. Back-to-back, we seemed a little lethargic to start the game. I think both teams were, but if you want to win on the road you’ve got to be prepared. Sometimes you can get the game in the first 10 minutes like they did when they got the goal on the four-on-three. But we need to be better prepared to come in here so we can catch a team. “

Gulutzan on goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp

“I thought he was fantastic. … I thought he was very calm in the net tonight. He did a great job.”

“It was fun to play out there, but it was kind of hard because we lost the game. … You always trust in yourself and I trust in myself, but today helped me out there.”

Stars forward Jaromir Jagr on the game

“We got the chance in the last minute, but otherwise they blocked all the shots. It was tough to get any chances. The power play, we just couldn’t get it in.”

“He was unbelievable. He stopped everything. He was in the zone.”

Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski on the game

“Both teams had trouble getting started. It was slow for a while and things gradually got better. You could certainly see some heavy legs for sure out there. There was not a lot of traffic at the net for a majority of the game. We’ll figure it out.”

Forward Zach Parise, who scored his first goal as a member of the Minnesota Wild

“It felt good to get one and to get one early in the season so I don’t have that dragging. We did a good job. It was a tough game both offensively and defensively for us. They played well in that first back-to-back experience.”

Wild goaltender Josh Harding, who stopped 24 shots for the shutout. Harding announced during the lockout that he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis

“It feels good right now. It was a long time coming. It’s been a tough couple months here, and this has made it all worth it. I can’t thank the team enough for having my back. They made some great plays and played great out there and made my job a lot easier.”
