On the inability to get that second goal during regular time:
“Again, another game where we’ve got to put away our chances, and it’s an easy win. We were kicking it around the goal, some chances weren’t taken. Against a team like that, if you leave them hanging around, they’ve got enough dangerous players – we’ve seen them come back from deficits. They don’t quit; they’re a well-coached team. Tonight is very much a result of just not putting away chances to finish the game.”
