"We felt like we needed those guys to step up a little bit," Tillman said Monday morning during a conference call. "We were a little sloppy in the first half. … We really were kind of asking those guys down below to start things a little bit more and start the initiation. Whether that led to a goal or an assist or maybe a slide, we felt like we wanted to do a little more of that. And we do have a lot of confidence in those guys. Obviously, with bumping Colin down, that's been a point of emphasis, and I think Colin's getting more comfortable there. That was something we certainly tried to do."
