Overall thoughts on the game:
“It was a good game. We’re unfortunate to not have anything to show for it. I thought other than the last five, seven, maybe 10 minutes of the first half where Portland were probably the better team. I thought it was a pretty even game. They always make it tough here, they certainly did tonight, but I thought defensively we were very solid. Like I said other than maybe five minutes of the first half when they got their goal... and at the end of the day we had a couple pretty good opportunities to tie it up, which I think if you look at the overall game, it would have been more of a fair result. But, when you don’t put the ball in the back of the net you get punished for it.”

On the quick turnaround between the next match with Portland on Wednesday:
“We got to put it behind us. We came into a tough atmosphere and played well, played better than we did the past couple weeks, certainly better than we did last weekend in San Jose. But, you got to put it behind you and they have to come to our place. Quick turn arounds are usually good after performances like this where you play well and you don’t get the result because you get to put it behind you quick and move forward and look forward to it.”
