Coach Noel post-game:
For Coach Noel’s comments click here.
- We are happy we got the win. The two PP goals they got, we didn’t look towards. Goal from Frolik was key.
- “I thought the Scheifele line had a good night. They helped us.” (Interesting he see’s it as Scheifele line).
- “I thought Trouba was outstanding. For a young player, in his first NHL game, I thought he was terrific”.
- “I thought Pavelec really came up big at key times”
- “I thought he (Buff) played hard. Did a lot of good things in the game”.
Video – Still waiting for it.
