JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"It was a gutsy effort. Obviously (Jeremy) Swayman was terrific in net and had some huge saves in the right moments.

We had some guys that really competed today. I thought Sammy Asselin was really good and Paul Carey really led us down the stretch. (Oskar) Steen and (Anton) Blidh were obviously impressive. We had a young D-core playing tonight against a pretty aggressive forecheck. It got a little hairy at times but that's what happens, especially in the building. Overall it was great to get the win.

Any coach that tells you goaltending is just part of the equation is not being honest with you. If you don't have good goaltending, you're going to have a really tough time winning games. Sway gives us all that and more and so does Vladdy (Dan Vladar). We're really blessed to have two guys that give us the opportunity to win every night. Sway was outstanding tonight. His poise and athletic ability really showed and it was a terrific performance from him."
