Coach Noel post-game quotes:

– “I thought we played a strong game. Thought our goalie made some key saves for us.”

– “For us the turning point in the game was the 5 on 3.”

– “Montoya was really good. He looked comfortable. He looked like he could really see the puck. He was good all night for me.”

– “I thought that the bench was alive. I thought that our guys were into the game. I thought we were good.”

Players post-game quotes:

Al Montoya: “It was a great game.  Right out of the gate we knew they were going to come but we knew we had to bring our best.  It is a tough building to play in and we were neck and neck with them the whole way.”

Bryan Little:  “I just thought our work ethic was a lot better.  A lot of people were saying that we didn’t have a good effort and we were getting outworked by teams and guys really took that to heart.  No one ever wants to hear you are getting outworked.  Tonight I thought we had a really good bounce back.  We needed this one.”

Zach Bogosian:  “I thought we had a better effort tonight.  Other than a few defensive lapses I think we played hard all three periods”.
