Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 3-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.
Stars coach Glen Gulutzan
“We limited their chances. We didn’t start very good, but in the second we got going a little bit after the goal. In the third I thought we played pretty tight defensively. Not our best outing, but we’ve got to take points right now and not worry about how we’re getting there. We’ve got to get points.”
Stars defenseman Sheldon Souray
“It was an important game for us to come out and establish ourselves on this road trip. We’re in a dog fight. It sounds like a broken record, but we’re looking at the standings every night and we’re trying to take care of our own business. It was a good start to this road trip. We didn’t paint a Picasso, but we were strong when he had to be and we got the two points. Our goalie was good. We needed this win.”
Souray on Kari Lehtonen
“Kari has been unbelievable all year. When we weren’t playing well he was playing very well. You need good goaltending in this league and you need to score goals. Right now we’re getting a little bit of both. We’ve got to keep riding it. Kari’s ready every night, he wants to play and we’re confident with him back there.”
Edmonton coach Tom Renney
"We made two poor net plays and that was the difference in the game. Otherwise we were doing OK."
