“As the game went on, we got a bit better breaking the puck out of our end.
I thought our defence did a better job getting the puck in the forwards’
hands and obviously it’s nice to see Poulin score another big goal; she’s
definitely a special player.”
“I thought Emerance was outstanding; there were times we were scrambling in
our defensive zone and she came up with some big saves. She did a good job
moving the puck and getting us going on offence, and gave us the
opportunity to get the win.”
- Head coach Troy Ryan (Spryfield, N.S.) on his team’s performance
“I think it was a great play by Joce [Larocque] and [Brianne] Jenner, I
think I’ve said that a couple of times. They make it easy for me, it was a
great drive by Jenner, Joce was hard on her stick and lucky enough I was in
the slot. Shift after shift we kind of had momentum during the overtime, we
kept possession, the goal happened and it was a great feeling getting the
win for sure.”
- Poulin on scoring the game-winning goal
“Any game against the U.S. is going to be tight. Being able to rise to the
high-pressure situation as a group, and especially having our captain lead
the way – it’s huge for us. She’s the heartbeat of our team; a couple of
special days for her, but it’s a big group effort as well.”
- Clark on back-to-back overtime victories
