Recap: Dominic Moore on TSN Radio (On the playoffs, staying in NY and Dan Boyle)

Dominic MooreDominic Moore was a guest on TSN Radio earlier this afternoon:

  • On the Cup Final, “Well, I have nothing but good memories of the playoffs and the Final, there is no doubt that LA is deserving winners. The margins are small, 3 of the 5 games go to OT and two were double. We know that we were right there but LA definitely deserved the Cup. It’s motivation for next season but a lot of things as a team that we will look back on fondly throughout the playoffs and good memories.”
  • On game five and the missed chances, “those are the things that you think about, even game one there were some big time scoring chances in the OT. McDonagh hits the post and those are the margins of the way the game goes and you work as much as you can to earn your breaks but that is how the game goes. If we had gotten one of the OT games it would have changed the complexion of the series. But, as it stands and as it is, LA is very deserving and worthy champions.”
