Head Coach Pascal Vincent on Nathan Todd

"I think his conditioning is really good. I think he has the confidence now that he can make plays. That he can contribute offensively and he can make plays. That's all confidence.

Forward Joona Luoto

"The first period wasn't what we wanted, we weren't in the game. Our legs weren't moving and they scored a couple on us. It wasn't the perfect start but as the game went on we were better and in third period we were dominating the ice, able to score a couple but it was a tough one."
