On the team's performance... "I think we just dig ourselves holes we can't get out of. We've come back in a few of those games but we just didn't have enough of an attack game."
On the power play... "The past 5 games you could say we've generated a grade A scoring chance - or a couple grade A scoring chances. Just didn't seem to find their way into the net."
On what's next... "We'll keep working at it. Monday we'll be back at it."
