Here are some postgame quotes following the Dallas Stars’ 6-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.
Stars coach Glen Gulutzan
“Our net presence was good tonight. It’s little steps. There are some building blocks to build from. Was our game clean? By no means, but it can get better. That’s what we have to do, but we’ll take the points and use that as a stepping stone.”
“I thought it was (Stephane Robidas’) strongest game. I don’t know if he lost a one-on-one battle. He was a workhorse for us tonight. I thought that was maybe the best game I’ve seen him play. You could see the five-day break and the healing of the foot and the hip has helped him immensely. That’s what we need of our guy back there.”

“We’ve had trouble scoring goals lately, but we’ve got our guys back in the lineup and we’re more healthy. A lot of goals were shots and traffic and rebounds. It wasn’t all like tic-tac-toes. We’ve got to keep things simple and play well defensively. I think there are some corrections that need to be made in that regard, but overall we are pleased with the effort and obviously we are very happy with the win.”
Stars defenseman Sheldon Souray
“We were a little more in an offensive mode. We were thinking a little more about scoring. In the last game (1-0 win over Anaheim) we were just wanting to keep it close and get comfortable in close game. Tonight we got an early goal to tie it up, we took the lead, got a big power play goal and we just started rolling. We worked hard and got a few bounces as well. And our goalie made a couple big saves as well.”
