The home side were in the game at half time, but seven second-half tries wrapped up a comfortable victory for the Saints.
The Salford coach told Sky Sports News: "There looks to be a pulse this week, and quite a strong one, because of the way we played in the first half and the way we tried to play.
"I do think the scoreline flattered St Helens a little bit and I don't think, in the main, our fans will be too dismayed this time because the players have had a dig.
"I am less disappointed than I was last time. If I can knock a few nails into heads tomorrow, and show pictures as to why it happened, we can improve next week and get ready for a really big game down in London."
Salford are at the bottom of the Super League table.
