JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"The first period was an excellent period for us - probably our best of the weekend. We got pucks deep, skated, and made plays to get up 2-0.

"Obviously they came back on us to make it 2-2 to turn it into quite a game. Our power play was able to cash in in the third and we were able to hold on with some big saves from Max (Lagace) down the stretch."

BRENDAN GAUNCE - ONE GOAL

"I think the goal was big, especially at that time. They made a push in the second period and we wanted to make a statement in whatever way we could. I think for two periods we showed that our skating causes problems for a lot of teams. Even against the best teams, if we play the way that we've been playing, it's a hard game for them and we're tough to play against.

"You don't always control the game for 60 minutes, but we find a way to win and that's what we've been doing for a while now. It's a big time of the year to have that happening."
