"I'm proud of the guys and the way that they played," Laviolette said. "I'm proud of the team that we became. I'm proud of the way we responded after Game 5 in the game tonight. We hate the result, but our guys gave a pretty good effort. It's difficult for us right now because our sights were set on winning the championship like anybody would be when you get to this point and for that, it's disappointing."
