“You’d like your team to respond differently. I guess that’s sport. It looks like we’re going to have an open-net goal and one of their players dives, knocks the puck away, takes our player down, and then we have another guy (who) doesn’t think too well. He’s looking for some gravy, I guess. The gravy could have been all over our face.”
