"I'm not really sure we could have played any worse, and I don't mean that to take anything away from them," coach Dave Pietramala said. "… When you really look at the game, offensively we've got one guy with eight goals and that's great, but where was everybody else? We just didn't play well offensively. I don't think we slipped very well. I don't think we did a good job in our picking game. I don't think we attacked the goal very hard. They didn't seem intent to slide, and I don't think we forced them to slide very much."
