"We played better and had a more complete game," said Lang, whose teammates, Brandon Marino and Scott Fleming, also scored.

As for being criticized by Graham, Lang said: "Yeah, I was obviously upset and so was (Mike) Vaskivuo, my roommate. But I think we have broad shoulders and we can take criticism and understand that we have to be committed to playing smart in both ends and valuing the puck.

"Coach is competitive and wants to win and I know Vaskivuo and I are the same way. Vaskivuo had a huge game tonight and is always positive and always looking to help the team win."
