Don Jackson: "Maximilian Franzreb had a clear view on too many of our shots. We need to be more present in front of the goal and make sure he doesn't see so many shots. We need more screens. That's what we'll focus on in the next game. Otherwise, we did a lot of things right: we were hot on the puck, took players off them - we have to keep that up."
Patrick Hager: "It was not the result we had in mind. We did a lot of things right, but didn't take advantage of our chances. However, we won't let that make us crazy and will still look closely at the things that didn't work out that way - especially the switching game."
Thomas Popiesch (coach, Pinguins Bremerhaven): "In the second period we have to thank Franzi. He showed outstanding saves. We then scored the goal a bit fortunately and still tried to keep things simple. In the last third, we had one or two chances, plus we stood compact in the defensive zone. But the key to victory was Franzi in goal."
Maximilian Franzreb (goalkeeper, Pinguins Bremerhaven): "We have already proven in the 1st playoff round against Nuremberg that we can bring close leads over time. Even though we weren't the better team today, especially in the second period, we found a way to thwart chances. And of course I'm glad that I was able to get one or two out of it. We earned the luck we needed. This is playoffs."
