JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

“There’s not much better than a six point weekend. As a coach, you enjoy these weekends. They don’t happen too often, so it always feels nice to get six points. We had a really tough week and put the work in, which was good. I think we were unhappy with the weekend we had before, so the guys recognized that and went to work this week. It certainly wasn’t perfect, but we got timely goaltending and timely scoring. We filled the time in between with some good play and it was good.“

MAX LAGACE – 27 SAVES

“It was a pretty good game. Obviously when they scored their two goals, they were coming pretty quick. I knew I had to focus and get us back in the game after that.

“Then in the third period I thought we played pretty well. The guys played really well the whole game and gave me the help I needed. It was a nice team win and a really great weekend.”
