It was clear that they wanted to win, but sometimes things don't go according to plan. Cassidy believes that this will be an important lesson for the future. “We had a lot of good looks, some Grade As that [Binnington] made stops on.

I thought we defended pretty well and didn't give up a lot,” -Bruce Cassidy said. “All in all, pretty good game. Well enough to win for sure. We've seen a bit of this movie the last month with some goaltenders playing real well against us where we didn't get points, so at least we got a point in this one”.
