JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"It was a big win. They provided a tall task, especially in the first period. They were flying and were able to get in on the forecheck. We were fortunate to have Max back there, who made a couple stops for us, and we were able to capitalize on a couple of our chances, which is the key to winning games.

I thought in the second and third we started to manage the puck a little bit better. We got into more of a groove with puck support and put pucks behind them the way we like to. It was good to finish this one out." JOSIAH DIDIER - ONE GOAL

"It felt great. I thought we had a great week of practice leading up to this game. I thought we came out strong and played great the whole game.

"They're a good team. They play hard and fast. They're right behind us in the standings so this was a huge win for us. It was nice come out strong and play a full 60 tonight."
