RYAN MOUGENEL, HEAD COACH

On the team through two games

"I think we learned a lot today. I thought it showed a lot of who we were. I think we're exciting to watch, that's for sure. We made some high end plays with a little bit of risk mixed in there, but I'll tell you this, it's a great bunch to be around. They're a lot of fun. I like our team a lot. If we play like that this year, I think we'll be in real good shape."

On lessons learned in the loss

"I think that was an important lesson tonight. There was about six or seven minutes left and we weren't managing the puck the way we needed to. That's where you have guys like Nesser (Aaron Ness) and Hughesy (Cameron Hughes) and guys that calm the bench down. To be fair and honest with you, it makes my job a lot easier when you have leadership like that. The one thing that I won't do - I don't want guys playing safe all the time. We have such skill and players are so good now. They want to create. Lots of teaching moments for sure, but I never want to take that out of their DNA."
