"It's always nice to win. It feels good. I thought we were a little sluggish early and they were a desperate group. They came at us pretty hard and we got some timely saves from Max. We found our footing after that and were able to capitalize on a couple goals that helped us.
"As the game went along, I thought we improved our play, which was encouraging. Hopefully we can continue to build on that tomorrow."

"Overall, I think we played pretty well. We definitely have better and will need our best to finish this weekend off strong. We have to show up, be ready and play the way we know how to play.
"We're coming together as a group and playing well. Things are feeling good and we're playing confident right now."
