Calgary Flames managed to win 4-2 vs Tampa Bay Lightning. MacKenzie Weegar helped his team with one goal. Weegar is happy with the fact that each individual gave his best to help the team.

"We played hard," Weegar said, as quoted by NHL! "I've got to give credit to the whole team tonight. I thought it was a full 60 minutes from everybody."

Victor Hedman, a defenseman for Tampa Bay, emphasizes that their team needs to offer more than individual efforts to achieve success. He stresses that even the slightest error can lead to a negative outcome, a lesson they learned firsthand in the recent match.

"We've just got to get back to playing, I know it's cliche, but the right way. It's just a matter of us getting back to what works. We know we have it in us. We just have to make the right plays at the right times. Just small mistakes that cost us and end up in our net."- Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman said.

MacKenzie Weegar reacts

Weegar reflected on the second period where his team showed quality in the best possible way. His team attacked, and exerted pressure, while the opposing defenders defended deep. Their ambitions are to continue like this in the next matches. Looking at their performances so far, the team and fans of this club have the right to be optimistic that the future holds great things for them. The most important thing is that you can feel the team spirit and togetherness at every moment.

"I thought that was probably our best period of the year. We were moving the puck quick. They were grinding the [defense] down. The [defensemen] were jumping up. We were breaking the puck out well. I thought we checked hard. We were on the good side of the puck. That was great to see for us. Hopefully we can keep building on that. I'm sure we'll go over it and show some great clips, some things that we need to improve upon, but I thought that was a great, great period by our team."-Weegar said.
