“Well like I said to you, we didn’t know where we were going to be physically, but that’s not an excuse, like I said to you there’s one thing that always I’ve been talking to the team and talk about before this game is how we do fight and you saw that before in the beginning of the season and at the beginning of this season, again that didn’t happen. Like I said this is not an attack against anyone but that didn’t happen tonight and so we need to rectify that against Toronto.”
