“I felt a lot of energy from our guys tonight. We took too many penalties and that is something we will work on. Our goalies did a great job and our guys came in with the right mindset, ready to play and that made all the difference.”

- Stéphane Julien, head coach for Team Canada, on the win vs. Finland.

“It felt good tonight to pick up the win. The boys were going, and our goalies were fantastic. Top to bottom I liked our effort. We have a few things to clean up before Sunday, but I like where we are at as a group.”

- Kalan Lind, forward for Team Canada, on building from the pre-tournament game.
