“It’s getting back to basics and making sure we’re focusing on details and
habits and every aspect of the game. Winning those battles are so key; we
know the game is going to be tight against the Americans and it could come
down to one battle won or one battle lost.”
Assistant coach Kori Cheverie (New Glasgow, N.S.) on closing out the
series with a win
“I felt really good out there and it’s exciting getting out there against
the Americans. It’s something I’ve been waiting for the opportunity, so to
play behind this group it’s always an honour and it was just exciting being
out there tonight. We had our moments [throughout the game], and going into
the next game we want to be more crisp and executing more with a purpose. I
know this group will bounce back and we’ll take what happened here tonight
and look to come out on top next game.”

individual battles and they took advantage of us being soft on our sticks,

something we can control, which is great, and we realize as a team so we
need to be better in that area.
