Stars-Oilers: Postgame quotes

Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 3-2 overtime victory in Edmonton Wednesday night.

Stars coach Gulutzan on Jaromir Jagr

“The winner, he is so hard to stop one-on-one. The first goal, the play he made to Benn, our bench was in awe of that play. Eric Nystrom said it best when he said, ‘What a beast.’ He still surprises the way he can dominate.”

“I like the win in overtime, but I didn’t like the response after those two goals. We kept turning the puck over and putting the game in jeopardy. Until we realize that we are a team that has to grind out games, we are a team that even if it gets a little dicey out there, we have to continue to play a certain way – we’re not going to get traction. So, I didn’t like our response; I thought we turned way too many pucks over. We’ve got to learn to do a better job.”

“I tried to beat the guy one-on-one and shot it right away. I still have to get used to it, the European rink is big and you have so much time. Here it is totally different, you have to shoot it right away.”

Stars forward Jamie Benn on Jagr

“He’s quite the player. It’s a privilege playing with him. We had an alright game tonight. We need to get better. We turned too many pucks over. We were lucky to get that win.”

Oilers coach Ralph Krueger

“The effort we had tonight, the way the guys fought back tonight, losing a couple players early again, with shortened bench, we were really proud of the effort. It makes the loss that much more disappointing.”

“We obviously want to start finding a way to get two points in these situations. We’ll find a way.”
