Post-match comments from head coach Laurent Courtois, Jonathan Sirois and Joel Waterman will be available here.


"I'm happy for the guys who are back from injury. The medical team worked hard to get them back on their feet. Their presence brings a new dynamic to training. I'm split tonight between the opportunities created and the challenge posed by this rival. It's mixed feelings. We know how decisive Jonathan [Sirois] can be for us. It's difficult, because when we play at home, we want to impose a certain rhythm, but we have to keep the opponent in mind. We wanted to pick our moments to attack. Tonight, we were a little too cautious at times. We need to be more assertive, but I can't blame the players because it's difficult with such a good opponent. We grew into the game well."


"On the one hand, we have to say that the performance was good. It's a fourth game with points, but we need to do more. We need to continue with this mentality and succeed in scoring to get more points. I haven't changed the way I work. I was disappointed not to be called up by Canada, but I took it as motivation. Not being called up didn't change the way I work. The fans really appreciated the presence of Matías [Cóccaro]. It energized us to see their presence strengthen the group."


"We wanted more clean sheets, so it's positive, but we wanted points too. It was a very good game against a quality opponent tonight. I think we created a lot of chances. In the other games, we didn't create as many. But tonight, we had good chances to win. I have to make sure the defence is compact to give us the best chance of winning the game. I prepare the same way for every game. I try to make my best and worst games as similar as possible to remain consistent."
