(Andre Daigle:" I think I had a really good grip on the game. I was ready I was really energetic and all over the place. I had a good feel for the puck."

(Jake Stevens):" If he didn't have a good first period it would have been very bad for us. We did great after that. It was nice."

(Carl Flynn:" In between the first and second periods I said to the kids. You have nothing to lose you are not playing like you usually play. You are treating the puck like a hot potato. You are just trying to get rid of it as fast as you. Do what you have done all year skate shoot and have success. We scored 41 seconds into the second period and our game just flowed from there.
