Brassard spoke with Pierre McGuire after the game and said:
- On the winner, "nothing special, we just shot the puck. We had a chance on the 4 on 3 in the last game and we didn't get it done so we went out and shot the puck and good things happen."
- Was there ever doubt, "no, it was pretty positive to be honest. From the bench, everything from the coaches was positive and we are playing a really good team and found a way to win, it's good."
- Was it a playoff feel, "all games are intense and there are no easy nights. Each night you need to work 60 minutes and sometimes you go to OT for two points. We are facing a lot of adversity right now with injuries but guys are coming back and our young players have been good and we are trying to get this thing rolling."
- On Rick Nash, "I've seen him play well but this year I feel he is on a mission. Every night I feel he is dominant and that is what we need for our team, he is our best player and that is what he has been showing to everyone this year."
