On how uplifting it is for the team to get a positive result after going through a tough stretch the last few weeks:

“Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. We are gonna go for three points heading into our last eight games now and that’s no different. But we have to be realistic. Going away from home and getting results is much more difficult. But definitely getting the goal at the endthere is definitely,I think,well deserved for this group because I see how hard they work during the week, how disciplined they are, how resilient they are. And I think they deservedto get at least a point out of this game. The performance overall was okay in terms of how we how we did, even though I believe it was a solid defensive performance, I think offensively we could we could be a little bit better with the ball, but sure the goalat the end there was definitely uplifting for the team heading to the next week.”

On the feeling in the locker room:

“I think a little bit of both. I mean, obviously it’s a positive result. Like I saidit’s a tough place to come and play and get a get a point or get any points from here, but obviously we had that mentality coming into the game that every game from now on is a must-win if we’re going to make a push for playoffs. I’m so disappointed that we didn’t come out with three points,but we just take the positives and look forward against Minnesota. We know they’re a strong team, especially at home, and we have to be super concentrated at their place because we know how dangerous they are as well.”

On whether the mood of the team is joyous over the point or frustrated not to get the win:

“Yeah, it’s somewhere probably in between there. Like I said, we know where we’re at and what we need to do to get ourselves to where we want to be this year. It’s going to be tough. So getting us out of the little funk we’re in and getting some sort of result, I think is a good first little step here. And then especially against a team that we’re competing with, and a place like this where it’s extremely difficult to come to any results. So I think like me and like (MF) Memo (Rodriguez) said, it’s a positive mentality shift, something we’re going to try to build off of, and I wouldn’t say it’s disappointment, but I wouldn’t say we’re celebrating over here. It’s something we can just try to try to pick our heads and pick our heads up and realize that we didn’t give up before.”
