“I think we had a couple of lapses in the second, but a great first period.
It was good to see us close out this road trip in the third. We executed a
lot of things we have been talking about and a lot of concepts we have been
implanting. It was a great way to finish up the road trip.”
Assistant coach Alison Domenico (Ottawa, Ont./Providence College, HE)
on the learnings from the series
“I think we started strong but got into a little bit of penalty trouble in
the second trying to cheat a little bit. I think we tightened things up and
then found a way to kind of finish on a strong note. [Overall,] I think we
got a lot accomplished here. There were a few periods here and there that
weren’t perfect, but finding different ways to win, penalty kill did a
great job today and I think special teams has done well on this road trip.
The game yesterday was a statement game and to come back and follow it up
with a big win was great for us.”
- Jenner on the team’s performance through the series
“We’re really excited to play in Kingston, close to my hometown so a lot of
family can come watch. With COVID-19 we haven’t had fans, so we’re all
really excited to play on home soil and get to play against our rivals.
We’re really looking forward to it.”
