JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH
"Every game we play against them is going to be a challenge. We've won in the past, but they have pride like everyone else and, to be honest with you, they're a pretty good team. It's going to be a challenge.
We didn't do ourselves any favors by going down on a five-on-three earlier in the first period and then, obviously, they capitalized right at the end of it. Then we take another penalty two minutes later, I don't even know if it was that (long), and we're down two to nothing.
That's a tough hill to climb that early in the game against a team we just beat who is playing with a lot of urgency like they were. It was a challenge."
