Postgame quotes

By Mark Stepneski

Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 5-2 loss at Winnipeg on Wednesday.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan

”I thought our effort wasn’t up to par, wasn’t where it needed to be. We knew they were going to come out hard and coming out of that first, down 1-0, I thought we were fine. We just didn’t have a lot of resolve in the second. They got some goals there and we couldn’t stop the flood.”

Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas

“We beat ourselves. We didn’t play well.  We turned pucks over. We let them come into the zone way too easy. They got a good start, scored the first goal and got the crowd into the game. We didn’t play a simple game like we’ve been doing in the past 11 to 12 games. We’ve just got to go back to the basics.”

Stars forward Loui Eriksson

“It wasn’t our best game. We turned the puck over too many times. We didn’t play the game we’ve been playing lately. We have to step up and play a better game in front of (Richard) Bachman. It’s not easy for him to save all those clear chances they had today.”
