Post Game Quotes - Dec. 23 vs. Vancouver

Post-Game Quotes

Blue Jackets Head Coach Scott Arniel
Commenting on tonight's game…

"It didn't look like we really wanted to play tonight in the first period, let alone in the rest of the game. It was an embarrassing game. I want to apologize to the fans. Professional athletes are paid to perform and when you don't do your job you're going to get criticized. We're all going to get criticized but that wasn't even close to showing up for work."

"There were a ton of things that bothered me… very early on in that game, the turnovers, the no compete and lack of professionalism bothered me and that wasn't just the first period.'

Blue Jackets Left Wing R.J. Umberger

Commenting on tonight's game…

"They played well, they attacked, they pressured hard. But we weren't good and we just fed into it and made them look better than they were. They played good, but we made them look great."

Vancouver Canucks Head Coach Alain Vigneault

Commenting on tonight's game…

"We knew that obviously they were sitting here waiting for us, that they would be ready and come out with a good start. Our guys executed really well. We went north-south real quickly and got pucks in their end. We put pucks behind their defense. We had a shooting mentality, so that made it real hard on them. We got the lead and then obviously they had to open it up a little bit and when they made a few mistakes and we were able to capitalize."
