"For the last two periods we played great," Washington forward Marcus Johansson said. "We had enough chances to score, we just didn't bury them. It is the small details that can cost you a game and tonight it did. It was a tough one to lose, but that's hockey sometimes. We played well, we just didn't execute and it cost us too much."
"It's not a fun ending, but it happens," Johansson said. "I think it's a part of the game. There's nothing you can do about it. It would have been worse if we were going into the playoffs, I think, for me."
