Coach MacLean post-game - 4.12.2014

The Ottawa Senators wrapped up their home schedule with a 1-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night. Jason Spezza scored the lone goal of the game on the power play while Craig Anderson stopped 28 shots to earn the shutout. Sens head coach Paul MacLean offered his thoughts after the win.

Here's what he had to say...

On the win:

Well I thought it was a great way to finish the home part of our schedule with the game the other night and a win against the Devils and here tonight. I thought our team came and played. It was a little bit loose, I have to admit that, but at the same time we found a way to win the game. I thought Craig was outstanding in the net and we had some really good games from some of our younger players who are looking to have a job in the National Hockey League.

On taking positives out of the finish:

I think any time you win it's positive. Right now it's obviously too late for a playoff spot but you still want to finish the season on a high not. Again, as we said this morning, every game is important, every game has value to somebody. Whether you're a guy who has been called up from the American Hockey League trying to find your way into the League, whether you're a veteran play trying to show you can still play, every game is important for one reason or another to somebody. I thought our team definitely showed that.

On the play of veterans in recent games:

The last few weeks they have (stepped up) and that's obviously a positive for the group. Again, we're playing games that don't mean much in the standings as far as getting us into the Stanley Cup playoffs which is what it's all about. At the same time, finishing our home schedule like we are is way better.

On snapping the streak vs. Toronto:

We had to stop the bleeding somewhere, we had lost six in a row to them and now we can start next season and say we've won one in a row.
