What did Andre Copp Say?

Copp's optimistic outlook, especially in light of missing key players, reflects a resilient team spirit and a belief in their capability to compete at a high level.

“I think we scored enough goals to win,” Andrew Copp said. “I think we created enough to win, for sure. I think the PK let us down and a little bit too much d-zone.”

“I think we built confidence over the course of today’s game,” Copp said. “I think we were a little shaky about how it was going to go, just missing those guys that we are. But hopefully we built a little bit of confidence and that we can play with anybody at any given time if we’re playing the right way.”

Clean Up the Defense

Copp admitted that the Red Wings did not do enough defensively.

“In the d-zone, we weren’t as quick to close on guys today for sure. Their power play is really good. We got to clean that up a little bit. We got to stop the trend. I think we were going really well there for about seven games to get out by seven goals. We got to find that again.”
