The San Jose Sharks won 5:3 against the Dallas Stars. Sharks forward Timo Meier is personally impressed with his team's fight. They did not want to give up even a single moment. "We found a way to win this game and it definitely feels good, especially [since] it would have been easy to quit at 3-0," -Timo Meier said for nhl.com "But we put our heads in there and then went to work, so I think that one feels really good." Sharks coach David Quinn loves his job and things like this are the best for a coach.
"When you get deep in the season, it's easy to kind of look at the situation and just quit and we have done anything but that,"- David Quinn said. "I've said this all along, I love coaching our group. It's a great group to coach.
They come to work every day, they bounce back after tough nights, which we've done. And I just can't say enough about our group. I'm really happy for them."
Karlsson on his team
Karlsson praised all teammates. "I think [all] the guys are doing a good job and showing up every day," Karlsson said.
"If everybody wasn't doing that, then no one could have any success. I'm just appreciative of everybody else." Stars coach Peter DeBoer is not happy with the approach of his team that had the advantage. Unfortunately, that was not enough.
"I think us on the road with a three-nothing lead, we've got to close that out,"-Peter DeBoer said. "But that's on us. It's not about scoring another goal. It's about not handing them any." Stars defenseman Esa Lindell praised the opposing team, whose game they could not find a solution to.
"[We] played really well in the first half and then they got the momentum," -Esa Lindell said. "They just [kept] coming out and we couldn't find [the] answer to it."
