Q.  What was the thinking in terms of shuffling the left wings there?

      COACH  QUENNEVILLE:   We  haven't  seen  this  team there.  I thought

offensively,  defensively,  I don't know if we've seen a line like that all

year.

      I  thought  they  had  a monster game, their top line.  Maybe we were

looking for a little bit more balance, keeping aware of that line.

      But they were tough to handle.

 

      Q.   In  general  terms,  how  do  you describe the emotions of Corey

Crawford overcoming?

      COACH  QUENNEVILLE:   Crowe was great.  He kept us in there.  He made

several all-alone plays and saves.  Had some odd-man breaks, some dangerous

looks.  He was great.

      Found  the  puck,  challenged.   A  lot of pucks at the net, a lot of

bouncing pucks with traffic, and a big penalty kill as well.

 

      Q.  With Andrew Shaw facing Chara tonight, what were your thoughts of

him tonight?

      COACH  QUENNEVILLE:  He's a competitor.  He does things game in, game

out.   The  bigger  the  stage,  the  bigger the challenge, he rises to the

occasion.   He knows where the front of net is.  Doesn't have to be pretty.

He's  a  warrior.   He's one of those guys that you appreciate he's on your

side and he's relentless.

 

      Q.   You  weren't  afraid to roll that fourth line a lot.  Talk about

their performance as the game went on.

      COACH  QUENNEVILLE:   All  year  along,  they  gave  our team, you're

comfortable  them  against  any line in a defensive line faceoff, matchups,

very  responsible.  They had a lot of energy shifts.  Seems like they would

always  start  in  our end, end in the other team's end.  They haven't been

together in a while, but it was like they played all year together today.

 

      Q.   In  terms  of the series moving forward, how do you regroup from

something like this?

      COACH  QUENNEVILLE:   We  got a couple of days in between here.  Just

basically played two hockey games in one night.

      So  get  some rest for tomorrow.  Get excited about coming in here on

Saturday night.  I think we haven't seen that team all year, but judging by

the way the game went, we're going to have to be ready.

 

      Q.   How  comfortable  are  you  with  the power play, especially the

five-on-three problems?

      COACH  QUENNEVILLE:  Couple looks that could have been dangerous that

didn't materialize.  Certainly we left one out there.
