Hartford jumped out to a 2-0 lead and then we tied it up 2-2. Then they went ahead 3-2 in the second period, and we tied it in the third with five minutes left, and then Tyler scored the winning goal.

They were a bigger, faster, stronger, team than we were. We bent, but we never broke and gave a lot up .I think it was an intense fast paced game. Their kids were a lot bigger, which made for an incredible game. Our guys never backed down, playing with a lot of tenacity.

Anders did well tonight. He was pushing two shifts all game and kept skating hard.

I thought we moved the ball extremely well. In the second half we had a good stall after the 14-1 lead.

We have been working hard the last two weeks. We have spent some more time training and we had the extra legs.

Nicky played well with 11 saves when we needed them. We got out to a lead right away and kept that space the whole game. We controlled the offense.
