Leaving Traverse City on a Positive Note
Well, it was our final day in Traverse City and we really wanted to finish on a positive note against the Blue Jackets … that was the big thing for us. The other thing is guys are still playing for jobs. It wasn't a nothing game, everyone is still trying to earn a spot. We knew both teams would come out flying since we both had tough losses. You want to go into camp on a positive note and that's certainly what we did.

There were some fights and it was certainly was an entertaining game to be a part of (a 5-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets) and we scored all five goals (on eight attempts) on the power-play. It would have been nice if the game were for first place instead of seventh place, but it is what it is.

Personally, I felt good in all the games. It's always nice to get a goal and we kind of rolled the lines more on Wednesday than we did in previous games, so it's good to get everyone in there for the last game and then off to camp.

This is the last impression on scouts for some of these guys before the cuts are made either Wednesday or Thursday morning, so that's part of it but it was also a chippy game. There was a lot of physical play but that's all part of it.

Now we'll get on a plane and go home and talk to everyone on the plane. On Thursday morning, wake up and I think we have a day off, so I'll kick back, take a deep breath and get ready for Friday when camp starts and we'll see what happens. As I've said before, I'll do what got me here in the first place. My goal is just like everyone else. I'm trying to make the team. That's what I intend to do.

Thanks for reading everyone and enjoy the season!
