Postgame quotes

Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 5-2 loss at San Jose Thursday night.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan on if the Stars lacked energy in the second night of a back-to-back

“I don’t know if it was as much us. I thought they played a real good game start to finish. I thought a good indication were those faceoffs (40-12 in favor of San Jose), manhandling us on the draws. I thought they were at the top of their game.”

On the play of goalie Richard Bachman

“He made some huge saves. I thought the first period could have been 5-0. He made some real huge saves.”

Stars forward Steve Ott

“I think there were a lot of frustrating things tonight. Obviously we didn’t get the result we wanted. There were a lot of little breakdowns. I think our faceoff percentage was 15 percent and when that happens you are going to chase the puck a lot. We made some costly mistakes that hurt our chances of being in the game.”

Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas

“We took a lot of penalties and they have a lot talent and they want to get on the power play. When you give them that many power plays they are eventually going to capitalize on it. That’s exactly what happened.”
