Coach MacLean post-game - 3.17.2013
There's plenty of ways to chalk up today's win to a luck of the Irish joke, but there was nothing lucky about it. From the opening whistle the Sens were the better of the two teams over the brunt of the game and came away with a well deserved two points via a 4-1 victory.
Coach MacLean had nothing but praise for the team's effort after the game, pointing out the performances of Robin Lehner, Kyle Turris and Jakob Silfverberg as crucial to the victory. The Sens seem to finally be finding their stride up front and continue to get solid goaltending in the back end.
Here's a Twitter rundown of what Coach MacLean has to say:
