"We were slow in setting up and they punished us for it. By the time we got our wall set up and we were shifting guys around, we leave our marks trying to get people in the wall, they punished us for it. Just late setting up and it’s happened in a couple games now. It’s something we need to get right in order to move forward."
 
On whether the team deserved better:
"A little bit. I think we battled hard to come back and get back. We at least should’ve gotten a point out of it. Doesn’t happen that way all the time, you’re not guaranteed anything, still got to put the ball in the back of the net, so I’m happy that the guys battled pretty hard. I mean, they worked pretty hard in the second half to get us back into the game, and like you said, it could’ve been a 2-2 game."
