    On the team’s performance:
    I just don’t think we played hard enough. Guys worked hard, but I think the word that we’re looking for is compete. But
    that’s with everybody, myself included. Think we have to compete a little bit harder. Last couple of games have been
    embarrassing for us and for the organization. We know what we have to bring this weekend. We’re playing two teams that
    are going to work hard and play the right way. For us it’s about coming to work this weekend.
    On Keith Petruzzelli:
    It’s tough. hard on him obviously. We have to play better in front of him, that’s where it starts. We have to manage the
    puck. Limit our turnovers which we’re not doing right now. But, it’s a mental game and it’s tough on everybody. We know
    he’ll get through it. We’re going to be there for him and make sure we play better for him.
