On playing under the circumstances of the lightning delay…
“It’s always difficult for the guys. It can be hard to stay focused, it can be hard with so many communications about when you’re going to start and it seems like there is no real set system such that there is going to be a certain amount of minute delay so we kept on saying ‘okay 20 more minutes, okay 20 more minutes, okay 20 more minutes,’ so it can be frustrating for the players, but all in all I think they handled it pretty well and we saw a pretty exciting game.”
