JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"We're certainly disappointed. I liked the way we started the game, but certainly didn't like the way we ended it.

Our guys have to learn, and I think they learned today, that when you play the same team over and over again and win - it's not going to get easier. It's going to get harder. These guys are all professionals and I think we learned that lesson.

Like I said, I think the first period went the way we wanted it to go. Then in the second and third, they pushed and we got frustrated. It kind of snowballed from there. It's certainly something to look back on and hopefully learn from, but today was not our best."
