Minnesota Wild at Columbus Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets Head Coach Ken Hitchcock
Commenting on tonight's game…

"We really got risky with the puck (in the second period) and it hurt us. We didn't win face-offs when we were killing penalties and then all of the sudden it's game on. We turned an easy win into a real hard third period."

 

Commenting on Defenseman Kris Russell…
"He's really playing well right now. He's moving with the puck and making plays – he's really dynamic on the power play, which is really helping us. Russell moving with the puck is creating a lot on our power play."

"The biggest difference is the confidence with the strength. I think you're seeing the stuff he's capable of offensively, which is good to see right now."

Commenting on Forward R.J. Umberger
"This was Umberger's best game – he was really good tonight and it was good to see. He was strong on the puck and he did a really good job of working with (Nash and Huselius)."

 

Columbus Blue Jackets Quotes

Blue Jackets Left Wing Rick Nash
Commenting on playing with Kristian Huselius
"It's great. He finds you everywhere. It seems like the chemistry has been good so far. It's only been four games, but it seems to be getting better every game."

 

Commenting on the team's performance compared to last night's game…
"It seemed like we came out tonight and were still dwelling on it. But just like last night you have to put those games behind us. That's what good teams do; they forget about those types of games and move on. It shows a lot of character to come back and win that game."

 

Blue Jackets Left Wing Kristian Huselius
Commenting on playing with Rick Nash

"I think we just go out there and try to play hard. It's just an instinct out there and we try to make the easiest play and go from there. I think we all feel pretty good. We know we have to keep getting better, but so far, so good."
