On recent play... "We haven't played great hockey as of late but funny enough, we've won three (games) out of 4. It doesn't feel that way but we have to take the positive out of that... we haven't been at our best but we've found a way to get points."

On his linemates... "We're just three guys that really like playing with each other."

On the AHL All Star Break... "That's what I'm looking forward to - a little relaxation and spend some time with the kids."



On Captain Nathan Gerbe... "Overall Gerbe's just been one of our better players on every night."

On bouncing back... "It's been up and down but overall I like our response after a loss. We went through a bad part of the season but overall the guys are improving, they're getting better, they're getting confidence - we've just got to be able to string together some wins."
