"In the playoffs, it’s important to be composed and I think we got out of the funk that we were in and we did a good job and we all did it together. It wasn’t one guy that took us out of the hole we were in. Everybody chipped in and now we’re looking forward."
"We felt we were building something for a couple of games. This is a setback. We've got to get back at it."
"These are the mistakes that you talk about all year and you can get away with it at certain times," Sutter said. "You might get away with it at the 30, 40, 50-game mark. Like I was telling the guys, 'You're not going to get away with it in March and April. And if you keep doing it, you won't see May. It's pretty simple."
"I'm annoyed. I'm not worried, I'm annoyed to see us playing like this when we're a better team than this on the road. At home, we've been fine. It's just our habits on the road. We've got to get that same attitude back on the road that we have at home. We had it before these last nine games, Outside of the Montreal game (a 3-1 win on March 14), which we were pretty darn good in, we've been pretty erratic on the road. It's the specialty teams. You can shake it and bake it all you want. Our specialty teams haven't done the job for us in the last little bit."
"I'm not happy with it," Devils coach Brent Sutter said. "You can't have three wins out of eight on the road and think you're satisfied with it. I'm not. We've got to be a better road team. We have to start finding ways to win. It's not like we haven't played well on the road. It's just that there's little things that we don't do home that end up costing us. Specialty teams is one. They have to be better on the road for us."
" Yeah, of course. I'm pretty ticked off. It's a tough loss. I didn't want to lose here. We wanted to keep our thing rolling. I take the game seriously, so I'm pretty disappointed about the loss."
"The elbow was great. Even playing the puck I didn't feel anything."
