Postgame quotes

Here are some quotes from the Dallas Stars following their 5-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks Thursday night.

Stars captain Brenden Morrow

“They poured it to us and put bodies in front. They were going hard to the net. When you throw pucks at the net and you’ve got people banging and crashing, good things happen. We didn’t do it enough and they did.”

Stars center Mike Ribeiro

“Obviously we need to play better defensively. The most important thing and the thing we’ve been giving up are odd-man rushes the last two games. We didn’t allow those much before that, but the last two games there have been a lot of three-on-twos. We need to tidy it up there defensively and if we do that it will give us a better chance to win games.”

“I thought he was real clean in the third. It’s not easy to come into those situations. They had some good chances and he made some saves. We’ll have a decision to make tomorrow on who is going to start in LA. We’ll take a look at everything and make our decision.
