I felt five-on-five we actually got outplayed most of the night. I thought the difference in the game was our power play. Our power play went four-for-four, which was great to see.
If we win tomorrow they'd be hard-pressed to keep us out.
I think it was good for us to get the first two points of the weekend, especially considering we didn't play well five-on-five. I don't think we had our legs tonight, and I think tomorrow we'll play a better game. Hopefully, the result will be the same.
Our group of defensemen played the best game of hockey they have all year long.
Our season was almost over in November. We were a team that was down and out. It's great to have an opportunity to play in the national tournament.
We have a team that graduated 60 percent of its offense from last year and our younger guys have to step up into some roles that were left open. Our guys are trying; we're just not seeing a lot of success.
We need to show the same intensity for 60 minutes that we showed in the last period (Friday).
We did a great job of shutting their team down. Greg Fargo played well, but their goalie (Andrew Gallant with 32 saves) kept the game close.
It's a shame we can't draw fans on a consistent basis. Here we have a strong conference opponent in the building and get such a small crowd. I want to thank the loyal fans we do have.
It's nice taking four points on the road from the No. 15 team in the country. It shows a lot character by our guys. And it's nice to have the tables turned from early in the year, when we weren't getting those breaks.
In the first 5 minutes and 18 seconds we weren't very good. We haven't played in two weeks. We took a couple of lazy penalties. They moved the puck around pretty well and scored two power-play goals. We kind of settled down after that.
In the first period I thought we played very poorly. It looked like the guys were playing with a lot of nervous energy.
He played extremely well. I'm really happy for him, being a senior.
He played extremely effectively on offense and defense.
The first game at Hobart, they had more energy and jump in their step. In the last two games, we matched it or were better. This being the playoffs, both teams will play at a higher level. The team that makes the fewest mistakes in its own end will win.
