"A lot of stuff we set out to do, we did," Trotz said. "There was some disappointment where we didn't go farther than we did. ... We started with becoming a competitive team from the get-go that had a good foundation in terms of work ethic, structure, accountability. This group was a special group because they dug in all year. There wasn't a lot expected from this group and they proved a lot of people wrong."
"It was a real tough decision because in this series, goaltending really wasn't the problem," Trotz said of mulling the switch before the game. "It was more the goal scoring."
