Stars-Avalanche: Postgame quotes

Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche Monday night.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan on bouncing back after giving up a 2-0 lead

“I thought our bench was a lot better and our big line got that equalizer for us and made a great play. I thought that was the difference; I thought there was more composure and more focus on what we needed to do. Games are going to be like this, it’s a tough league, everyone is playing hard. We’ve got to stay focused. I thought we did a better job of that tonight.”

Gulutzan on Brenden Morrow, who scored his first goal of the season

“He put in a tremendous amount of work and he’s a very focused individual right now. With the injury to Derek we wanted some balance. We needed Brenden to step up and he has. He’s the leader of this group and he’s got to step up. That line (with Morrow, Jamie Benn and Jaromir Jagr) is getting some chemistry. You can write things down as much as you want in the summertime, but you never know when it appears and it seems to be jelling pretty good.”

Gulutzan on Jamie Benn, who had two goals and one assist in the game

“Our big guy came to play and he’s getting into form. The way he shoots the puck and releases the puck is fun to watch behind the bench. As a coach it gives you a sense of calmness when he’s out there. I think that’s what every coach in this league likes about their best players.”

Stars forward Jamie Benn

“I felt pretty good tonight, probably one of my better nights. I want to keep building from here and be as consistent as possible and kind of ride this into the next game.”

Stars forward Jaromir Jagr

“Jamie had a great game. He took over the game. That’s his team and that’s the way he has to play right now for us to be a successful team.”

Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski

“We’ve been trying to figure it out here. We have periods of not playing very good and short ones of playing good games. We’ve been inconsistent, but tonight we were pretty consistent throughout and it’s kind of what we are looking for.”
