Johan Hedberg stopped all 33 shots to earn his third shutout of the season.
“Even though we have been extremely disappointed the last few days here, you have to play for your fans and you have to play for your pride,” Hedberg said. “We did all that tonight. I was happy to see the fans come out. It was a great atmosphere in the building, and it leaves you with a good taste for the summer. Even though we are disappointed, I think we did a lot of things better this year than last year. … You have to keep building.
“Rome wasn’t built in one day. Hopefully this is a step that will carry us.”
