I am very happy with our game today. We were cautious in the first ten minutes of the game. I lost focus in our game. The momentum came to our side with the crucial opening goal. After that, I really liked our performance. We played calmly and won the match. The power play goal was very well played. Juho Markkanen held up well today. He was there when we needed him.”
Serge Aubin, head coach
“It was a strong performance from us throughout the game. Everyone did a great job. Our defense played well and the forwards were fantastic. We continue to look game by game. On Friday, Cologne is the tough opponent that awaits us. We have to build on our performance today.”
