Hampus Lindholm is delighted that he brought victory to the team with his goal right before the end of the match. "I've been feeling pretty confident about my game, so I knew it's a 60-minute hockey game," Lindholm said, as quoted by nhl.com "Fell behind there a little bit early, but 60 minutes of hockey, so you just try to stick with it.
Tonight's one of those nights where it went our way."Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan believes that his team could have done more. "At the end of the day, we've got to find a way to win games," Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.
"When you've got a two-goal lead heading into the third, you're in a good position to win. We had opportunities to win. We didn't take advantage of it." Taylor Hall scored one goal. He believes that persistence has paid off. "The cliche line is you keep playing, you keep believing," Hall said. "I think it's so true.
We weren't getting run out of the building by any means. ... So, it's a huge win. Not that we're not a confident team, but to show that when you're down three, just keep chugging along."
Bruins coach Jim Montgomery reflected on the match.
"I'm sitting there and I'm like, 'We're generating chances. I just love the fight in this team,'" Bruins coach Jim Montgomery said. "There's like nine minutes left. Might not be our night. But geez, it was." Sidney Crosby is not happy with how his team handled certain moments.
"We're just giving up too much," Crosby said. "We finally got a lead, we didn't do a good enough job. … We did a lot of good things. I think it was one of our better games, for the most part. But we've got to find a way to close it out."
