“My teammates were very supportive. It was great to hear. Nobody wants to have anything like that happen in the last minute of your first game,. The way it happens is not a very nice way to begin with a new team. I think it is the sign of a good team the way they supported me after the game and again this morning.

It was on all those TV places because everybody cares about hockey here. In Canada every good play becomes a great play. And every mistake is magnified. I wouldn’t say it’s any easier but experience helps when something like this happens. Sometimes bad things happen. If something like that happens to you, obviously you’d like it to happen earlier in the game. I didn’t have another shot after that. Mistakes happen for everybody. The next game after is important. Experience teaches you that good things can follow.”
