We deserved better and it didn't fall that way ... You've got to win four and there are plenty of games left and we need to go on a winning streak here.
It's tough ... We deserved better. I thought we played exceptional tonight. We just didn't get it done. We have to regroup and focus on Game 3. Tomorrow we will learn from this and move on.More quotes »
