JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"I think it took us a little while to get going. They had the majority of the momentum in the first period, but as the game went on we started to skate and we were able to get into their end, get in on the forecheck, and have some offensive zone time. I certainly was encouraged by the last couple periods.

We've got a younger group that's just learning how to win against some older players. It was good to see. I thought our power play had some good zone time. Our kill was, for the most part, good against a really good power play. There were some really good signs. We obviously would have liked to get the win and hold onto that game, but, at the very least, we put up our best effort and hopefully we get rewarded the next time around."
