JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"It was a great way to bounce back after a disappointing loss a few days ago. I thought our compete level was much better today. We skated hard and made some mistakes along the way, but when we did, we had Sway (Jeremy Swayman) ready to back us up.

I thought we had too many passengers in our last game. Today, everyone was engaged and we're obviously very excited to have gotten the win. This building can be a really hard place to play and I thought we handled that well today."
