GLENDALE, AZ - APRIL 26: Jamie McGinn #11 of the Colorado Avalanche skates with the puck during the first period of the NHL game against the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena on April 26, 2013 in Glendale, Arizona.
It was nice to get one right before the end of the (first) period ... It's a momentum-shifter and a booster for the locker room. We could feel the energy in here and the energy in the crowd tonight, and we wanted to build off it.
It's no fun losing. We all know what position we've put ourselves in ... There's only 12 games, there's a lot of pride in this room, and we're paid to play this sport. We're going to come out and play hard every night and win a lot of these games here. That will be good for the room, good for each other.
I loved it in San Jose. I loved all the guys and still keep in touch with a lot of them ... Personally, it's the best thing that's happened to me.More quotes »
