Head Coach Troy Mann:

“It was a real solid 60 minutes. I’ve coached in this building many times and they always make a push early, which they did, but I thought defensively we were really strong and we started to take over the game about 7:00 in. I felt we really had our legs and everybody played well tonight. There were some real good performances overall, but I thought all 18 skaters and Gus were engaged tonight.”

“I thought [Gustavsson] was real effective and again made a couple of big saves. When it was 2-0 and we were killing a penalty he made one heck of a save there.”
