We battled to the bitter end, Ruff said. We could have easily won the game. We skated better than they did in the third period, although they might have been just trying to preserve the one point, which was important to them. Sometimes you look over and they were not taking a lot of chances. They were maybe just trying to get it to overtime to get the extra point.
