That change the game at that point that you feel was dirty. Not gonna come on man I'm sure that show look at it I'm just worried about Victor my concern was. You know as he was going off the ice that this. In the message from our trainers and doctors doing good. But the battle for goaltenders won't talk with the players but that's a game that easily treat one can get away from anybody in this building in this atmosphere just the way that Chad and offices in the first rodeo on this story.

It was awesome movies that I. Over your emotions when the predators fans honored. It was it was great you know it it's just weird and you know on the side. You know of that door. Between a locker rooms just that. You know I'm. Really proud of our guys have said that to them that there was stuck with that and we got a huge win here.

Erica start with that you know they just stay the course and I think he won those 31 there and they they really dug in and it was great response from our team and I'm really. I'm that's the fatally some very very happy right now. Your veterans led the way and Jack with his five assists on the night franchise tying franchise records. That's a guy who and you're counting on from leadership on the road was tonight with a nights where he kind of took the reins and said. Let's let's finish this I think I think the leadership group. But in general I think is the off contributed and in the semi running hurt but. You know Ryan O'Reilly our power play in Jack was terrific tonight. You really led the charge I think Johnson really had the answer for us one was critical look at that time in the game.
