Tough I was overtime games couple tough losses and and showed that he could -- and rebounded from the start of the year -- through tour today. After you guys dropped game three -- really dominate in the past teams could you imagine a better response from your team. Well I still think we got to got to be better I don't know not to have. I'm not doing cartwheels. In the last two games they still think there's another level we got to get to. To be. More consistent game in that direction to cliff pace. Did you anticipate -- to be such a force a player that you know what to expect him. But I had a good and then he's proven capacity -- -- score and then the outcome up a couple of injuries late in the year. And he was fresh and ready to go once we began. This season production. Could finish in the tournament treated me so Hosea. And could start for. Talk about Kruger on the penalty killing -- wants to see him rewarded on the other side with his first clinical F -- special game with. The whole series and control wood and an outstanding job.

And I think -- this series who could probably talk about her defense more than anybody's -- Get in the media attention -- -- only played. The tackle would dunks and Cameron getting the assignment in and I'm doing a real good job and different heights and guys score some lines or more productive offensively but at the end of the day that consistency was one of our strengths this year and I think that. -- goalie go to. -- probably areas that. Pretty easy -- and how much of a difference as having this Marion Sosa in this post season make. Purses you know what -- guys encountered last now obviously cosa. Here's last week when you when he went down. You know having them in your lineup all year long and what he brings to your team game and special teams and you know his quality of play and intelligence on the basis and that's huge for us and reflects. You know what we're looking for naming him. -- are Sharks are Red Wings any preference basis. Obviously look at what -- One more game and maybe two more so we'll see and they don't see them both teams and a lot of respect for. Kill the still does having this experience under the bill two guys who weren't involved in the cup run year. She does here you're pickles your -- receiving -- what does this do for them going forward. Well I think it's good for everybody that we don't get the taste of playoffs and I think we still have to get different type of pace to our game. That's catching up to the other series Serbian player that would play us all about that a regular season. There's another appetite that we got to get as well and I don't think we should be happy with where or whether play. And let's get angry as we go along here.
