Post Game Quotes

Nashville Predators at Columbus Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets Head Coach Ken Hitchcock

Commenting on the game…

"We didn't have the energy that we've had (earlier in the season) – we didn't have the energy all day. We got behind and had to open it up. We had some people that tried hard today, but we had some very poor performances by some people that normally give us pretty consistent performances."

"Our execution today was very poor. We struggled to make 10-foot passes. We had a lot of tired looking players out there. It's not an excuse, it's just a reality of where we're at."

"This is not normally how we play. It's disappointing for everybody and we have to step back up."

Player Quotes

Columbus Blue Jackets Rick Nash

Commenting on tonight's game…
"We have to start competing again. Other teams are getting better and we are staying the same."


Commenting on playing Nashville the past two games…
"It's unacceptable, it's our home ice and after losing to them on Saturday we should have played better."


Columbus Blue Jackets Center Ron Hainsey

Commenting on the past few games…
"We got out-skated in Detroit, played a couple good periods in Nashville to get a point and then tonight. There wasn't enough jump in the first period, we have to do a better job on the back end. I wasn't very in good in the first, as a group we weren't very good."

Commenting on tonight's game…
"They won more battles and put more pucks in the net. There are a few adjustments we need to make, a lot of it is competition related, winning the little one on ones which leads to the overall success of the team. We had one power play. Maybe that shows we weren't skating hard enough to make them slow us down."
