San Jose Sharks Postgame Quotes:
"Our first period was the difference in the game. We turned a lot of pucks over. We were sloppy and soft in the first. They made us pay."
Patrick Marleau (On Chicago's fourth goal): "The next shift they were right back at us. After getting a goal to get within one we have to have another good shift. But they got in there and got another (goal)."
Joe Pavelski: "Part of it was our turnovers; whether they were on top of us and we didn't make the play or we were just a little sloppy. We never really found a flow in the game - we kept working and got one (goal) back on the power play and we had them within one goal a couple times; you know you're looking for that one shift that can really get you back into it - and we were just a little bit short there."
Chicago Blackhawks Postgame Quotes:
Head Coach Joel Quenneville (On his fourth line): "They scored a huge goal for us. That's the first time that line has scored this year and I don't think the timing could have been any better."
Andrew Desjardins (On his goal): "It felt good. It was a long time coming. I've had a lot of chances this year. We had two good shifts in the third and luckily got one."
Patrick Kane: "We didn't play too many shifts in our end. Tonight was a step in the right direction for us as a team. We knew San Jose was hot coming in and we slowed them down by not allowing a shot in the first ten minutes of the game."
