“I thought we were a bit up and down today, but at the key moments we
performed well, stuck to the structure, and put ourselves in a position to
be rewarded. Our motto has been that the simple play is often the best
play. Tonight, those little plays opened the opportunity for a little more
creativity in the offensive zone, especially for the Cozzolino line.”
- Head coach Russ Herrington (Unionville, Ont.) on the win
“We’ve been focusing on defence first and staying above the puck. A lot of
our offence comes from our positioning and where we start in our own zone
and that paid off for us tonight.”
- Cozzolino on his team’s effort
“This was another good win for us, and we will enjoy it, but we know we
have a tough opponent coming up. We need to reset and refocus and get back
to what we do best in order to be ready for USA.”
- Hickey on facing the Americans on Tuesday
