“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
