JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"I can't say we were outstanding tonight. We were very average for at least the first half of the game. I thought we got going towards the end of the second and in the third we were alright.

"It was outstanding by Seny (Zach Senyshyn) to get us back in it. I thought we did buckle down and play the right way in those last five and a half minutes. Overall, there was some good stuff and also some stuff that we're going to have to work on."

ZACH SENYSHYN - ONE GOAL

"Once we kind of got into our own flow, it was a lot better. It was a slower start for us, but we were able to find a way to win. That's a good quality for a team to have in games like that.

"You've got to win that first one to go on a streak. We've just got to keep going here and hope for the best."
