JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"I thought we played a really solid 60 minutes other than a couple breakdowns. We had a mistake in the second on the penalty kill and obviously the mistake that cost us the lead late in the third. Those things can happen against a team that can score like Utica.

Overall, I really thought we played one of the better games I've seen us play from the goalie on out. It was nice to be rewarded at the end with the two points because I thought the guys really deserved it tonight."

"I thought that was one of our best games of the year. It was a complete team effort tonight. Vladdy played great, the D played good and the forwards played well.

PAUL CAREY - ONE GOAL, ONE ASSIST

"We have a nice little thing going here as a team. We just have to keep at it. It's a good time of year to play well. You have to get as many early wins as you can because you don't want to rely on March and April to make the playoffs. We just have to keep doing what we're doing and keep working hard and hopefully we can stay on this streak."
