San Jose coach Ron Wilson was not happy after his team lost 2-1 in overtime to the Stars. I guess that's understandable, considering his team is now down 3-0 in the series and facing elimination tomorrow night. But don't ask him about how hard it is for a team to keep alive in this position. Here's what the grumpy coach had to say after the game:
... I thought for the first two periods, we played a perfect road game. We had some good opportunities, and snuffed theirs out. We took a bad penalty at the end of the second period and then we put a gun to our head with that 5-on-3 opportunity and they converted. They got excited and we got back on our heels. We were running around a little bit and didn't show much poise until late in the third period.
... We had couple of good opportunities in the overtime, especially the one by Milan [Michalek] but we didn't get it done tonight.
On Zubov's goal: Well, when you go down 5-on-3 what the heck are you going to do? Even that shot, it was a ricochet that swept through Nabakov's legs. It was a tough break.
On the Marleau short-handed goal: That was a great play. Patty made a great play. Zubov made a blind ply and then Patty jumped all over it and buried it. That was a great play because he was tired and still found a way to score.
