Stars-Coyotes: Postgame quotes

Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 2-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan on the game

“We should have got a point. 2-0 against these guys, it’s not easy to come back. We had lots of time and chances, we just didn’t convert. Better fate, I don’t know. I wish we could have got a point out of here.”

“Sometimes you’ve got to give the other team credit. I thought they played hard defensively and they got in our lanes. I thought we needed to be a little bit better at net presence and getting the shots past the first defenders rather than getting them blocked. That’s something we stressed in between the first and second, but they did a good job.”

Gulutzan on if he had an update on Jamie Benn, who went to the locker room after being hit by Martin Hanzal

“No, I haven’t talked or asked. Just looking at the hit now. I will get a report after.”

“I thought it was late, but that’s not for me to decide.”

Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas

“We had a five-on-three in the third period for a minute-and-half. That was our chance to get back in the game, and we couldn’t do it. That gave them momentum the rest of the game.”

Stars defenseman Trevor Daley

“That’s the style that team plays. They don’t give you much. We were fortunate to get what we did. Smitty (Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith) was pretty good tonight.”

Coyotes coach Dave Tippett

“When you block 29 shots that’s a sign that your team comes to compete, they’ll do whatever takes to win on a given night. That’s a little more what we are looking for.”
