Minnesota Head Coach Don Lucia
On the Gophers' third period...
"I give our guys credit for finding a way to win the third period and win the game."
On the tempo of the game...
"Definitely. It was something we talked about. It was a stretch of five games we played away, and now it's nice to be home. We've got to get these points here at home."
"The first and second periods were a little sloppy. We've just got to be better at little things, and I think we got better and played really well in the third."
On scoring after his goal drought...
"It was nice getting one (a goal) tonight especially in a win to start the weekend right. It was a nice setup, and the puck just kind of found my stick. You couldn't get a better chance than that."
"I'll take it (the goal) anyway I can get it. It was just nice to find the net again, and hopefully we can keep it up tomorrow."
