I was real happy with the way we responded after falling behind early. We've really done that all year long. We haven't gotten down on ourselves when we've fallen behind. I think we answered their goal with one of our own about a minute and a half later. Once we got that first goal, it kind of ignited a fire for us the rest of the night.

We're still struggling with the first period and I don't know what to do about that. But obviously we were able to regroup in the second period.

Those two work really well together.

We were down a couple of guys and had to fill in some players. We played pretty good. I was really pleased with tonight, other than that first period. It was a nice win for us before we go to Pierre.

They came out strong but we kept our composure. It was a very back-and-forth game and exciting to watch.

We had guys in different spots and those guys did a heck of a job for us.

We haven't seen them yet this season. We're going to prepare with what we've done in practice. We'll go into battle with that and just see how it goes.

We knew Mitchell was going to come out strong. That has been their game plan all year. On the other side, we came out struggling and were a little flat-footed.

Matt's been our leader this season and faced a lot of responsibility.
