“We would have liked to have a stronger start, but we are happy we scored
when we needed to. It is certainly different facing clubs we are not
familiar with. The games do feel pretty physical, but looking at our two
games so far, we are confident we have more good hockey to offer. We need
to take things one day at a time, but obviously, with the recent result at
the regional final, tomorrow’s match-up against our rivals from
Saint-Hyacinthe is a source of motivation.”
Blizzard captain Xavier Veilleux (L'Ancienne-Lorette, Que.)
on the team’s second win.
“It was a great team effort from our team today. We talked in the
intermission after being down 4-2 after two periods, and we knew we wanted
to come out hard to get back into the game. Scoring two goals was a great
moment for me, and it was a surreal moment I will never forget. Now we have
to keep it going, keep working hard, play as a team and I think things will
turn out good for us.”
- Wong on Toronto’s comeback victory.
“We played a good game. Bouncing back from a game like yesterday’s is
tough. We started well, and our play was more physical. Saskatoon also had
a good start, but we were able to keep our emotions in check and, overall,
we are happy with our performance. We told our players that the intensity
is only going to ramp up from game to game. We also fed off our home
crowd’s energy, which is a good thing for our players to get a feel for
that early in the tournament. We are now going to prepare for tomorrow’s
game. It always leads to good hockey when we face the [Séminaire
St-François Blizzard], because they are very well-balanced team.”
Gaulois de Saint-Hyacinthe head coach Jean-Philippe Sansfaçon on
