Nick Baptiste and Evander Kane each had a goal and an assist while Robin Lehner stopped 37 shots. See what they told reporters after the game.

Nick Baptiste
"All the guys have been playing well. I know [Carrier's] been great, brings lots of energy. Justin [Bailey's] been playing great. Evan [Rodrigues] has been up for a short time, but I think he's been playing great since he's been up. Trying to play my game and do whatever I can to stay up here."

"You try and push the pace against defenseman. They're skating backwards when you're attacking them. Trying to get them and make plays so they can haul you down and get our guys out there that are on the power play to score goals."

Evander Kane
"They came out pretty strong, kind of like how Colorado did the other night there, in the first few shifts. Once we got that goal we kind of settled in. Obviously we knew we were playing a much better team in St. Louis this afternoon. They scored first and we needed to respond and that's what we did."

"It's not [Baptiste's] first call-up, but obviously it's a tough one. He gets a call in the morning for an afternoon game. Never easy making an hour and a half drive down the street, so great effort by him. I'm sure he's happy about it and we're happy for him because he helped us win."

Robin Lehner
"Rodrigues and Bailey have been playing really well for us lately. I think Baptiste had a really good game today too. That's what we need. It's not just about this club, it's about Rochester. It's about the whole organization and we all have to contribute somehow."
