Author of a goal and an assist against the Bruins, Nick Suzuki corroborated the words of Martin St-Louis by describing this game as very positive despite the final score.

“I thought we were the better team for the majority of the game. There are a few games we'd like to review. But I think we outplayed the Bruins in a lot of categories, we got a lot of chances. We played well on the special teams, but we end the game on the wrong side. It could happen. »
