Postgame quotes

Here are some postgame quotes after the Dallas Stars 2-0 lost to the Nashville Predators Thursday night, eliminating them from the playoff race.

Stars coach Glen Gulutzan

“It was a good hockey game; we just didn’t get the result we wanted. We played hard and I liked the way we competed. It was a one-goal hockey game, who could manage to get that one in, and they managed to do so.”

Stars captain Brenden Morrow

"It's frustrating, disappointing. Kind of a repeat of Groundhog Day of last year. It doesn’t get easier. You always want to win that last one and give our fans the opportunity to see playoff hockey again. They deserve it. Ever since Mr. Gaglardi took over (as owner) they’ve been out to support us and root us on. It would have been nice to give them the opportunity to see some playoff hockey.”

Stars forward Steve Ott

“It’s tough because obviously we’re out. It’s never fun and it’s the worst feeling for a professional hockey player.”
