Bryce Kindopp potted the unlikely game-winner and the mood was jubilant in the hallway post-game for the first time in quite some time.
“They had no idea who got the 10(-minute misconducts). We lost all our guys that were on the ice and somehow (Patrick) Bajkov and (Matt) Fonteyne, two of their best players managed to stay on the ice, which is ridiculous. We ended up with four 10(-minute misconducts), they ended with one and I don’t understand how that can possibly happen.
“In the heat of the moment they had no idea what was going on, who had the 10s and who didn’t. We had a key power play and we didn’t have a whole unit and they had their top penalty killers because they somehow got to stay in the game. It’s unacceptable and they should have sorted it out before they started the play. They didn’t have any idea what was going on. I don’t know, they lost the handle on that. They’ll try to say that they didn’t but they had no idea what was going on.”
Later O’Dette added the following:
“When we get those questionable calls against us, a couple in the third, I’ll have to watch the video but they go down easy, we know that. It just motivates us and dig deeper to get those kills.”
It could make for an interesting time tonight back in Everett.
