Here's what a few of the Stars had to say after Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Sharks. Have no fear, Stars fans, they still lead the series 3-1 and have had great success on the road so far in the playoffs.
Stephane Robidas: We do feel like we can win on their home ice but we still have to be ready for a big challenge. We have to stay more disciplined next game. Special teams has been the story of the playoffs and always is, no matter what year it is. We have to respond to the momentum that they have now, have a good meeting tomorrow and forget about this one.
Jere Lehtinen: We knew they were going to come hard and they got a couple of late goals. We have to play better and get our game to the next level in Game 5. I got a lucky break in the slot and it was nice to take the early lead. It's hard to play three games in four nights, but we're both in the same boat. Both teams played tight, defensive hockey and they just got one more goal than we did.
Brad Richards: It's a game of inches and they ended up capitalizing on their chances. We won two of the games in overtime and it's just a fine line. We'll go out and play a simple road game in San Jose, stay out of the box and play smart. We have to get pucks in deep and try to limit what they're doing. It's not a do or die game for us, but we have to play like it is. I still like where we are and we're still in a good spot. Marty has been great and he held down the fort for us a lot of the game.
Marty Turco: We smelled the blood and it was tough on both teams with the back-to-back. We certainly didn't play on sweeping them coming into the series. It was another tight game in the 3rd, and this is playoff hockey. It doesn't matter who scores the goals, it's about playing as a team and sticking to our game plan. We are going to continue to stick to our game and look for heroes. We like the way we are playing, limiting their opportunities and we were still knocking on the door in the 3rd.
Brenden Morrow: Our discipline was one of our keys to success and we lost it tonight. We put together some good shifts but it's tough to gain momentum when you are killing penalties that often. They did a good job creating turnovers and the shorthanded goals are tough. That's something we need to clean up. We knew they weren't going to quit on us and we need to go in and focus on the next game. Marty continues to make some hugr saves and gives us a chance every night. Unfortunately, we didn't make enough plays after he made those big saves.
