5:19PM: While speaking about the starts on Thursday, Alain Vigneault said "there is no doubt that in the first four games, other than the Montreal one, even the Montreal one where we had a lot of turnovers and spent time in our own end, if you get behind, it's a tough league. Positive thing, for me, is that we got behind and tied it up, that shows a lot of character and resiliency in the room. Last game we went down and tried to come down and had a real strong push and their goaltender was the difference in the third. There are some things to build on but we aren't going to hide, we have room to improve and I believe this group will do it, very hard working group."
