He emphasized the importance of maintaining this level of play in the upcoming matches.
“It would have been nicer if I got another shutout. No, the win’s great, and I’m happy to just keep this train rolling. We're playing great. We're sticking to our game plan, we're executing it well, and it's nice to see the results go our way.”- Daccord said, as quoted by NHL
Jacques Martin reacts
Coach Jacques Martin mentioned that a specific five-minute period affected the hockey game's result. He believed that the team's initial mistake led to the opponent's first goal. Despite playing well at first, the team lost their focus. They had chances to score, but the opponent's goalie stopped their attempts. Instead of sticking to their plan, the team made some errors, allowing the opponent to score twice, making a comeback challenging.
Jacques Martin is aware that his team must work on many aspects of the game if they really want to make progress and get a good result. Such performances do not cause optimism that the future could be particularly different for him and the team.
Coach Dave Hakstol mentioned how happy the team was to have the player back in the lineup. He highlighted the past year, mentioning that the player faced many challenges but handled them well. Hakstol expressed joy at having the player back on the team and seeing them succeed in the game.
Dave Hakstol certainly hopes that his team can continue at the same pace in the future. There are many quality individuals within the team. In addition, you can feel the chemistry between the players, which is perhaps crucial at this moment.
