“To end this tournament off with a win is a great way to send off the 20-year-olds on this team. They have put their heart and souls into their careers and it’s a great feeling to know they are going out with a good feeling. I can’t take any credit for this one. The guys in front of me did a heck of a job keeping the Senators to the outside and letting me see everything. I’m proud of this team and everything we’ve accomplished.”

- Boivin on his impressive performance to end the tournament.

“We haven’t played a full 60 minutes yet, and I thought today we did against a very good hockey club. All 20 guys battled hard, and we got some great goaltending. This is a big stage, and for a lot of these guys it’s something new. This is a great experience and there isn’t a guy in that room who didn’t leave it all out there.”

- Mariners head coach Laurie Barron (Kennettcook, N.S.) on his team’s effort.

“The boys were fired up to play. The crowd was nuts tonight and we fed off it. It was not our most disciplined game that’s for sure, but our penalty killers showed up and did it all. Guys were blocking shots and our goalie was unbelievable. When he’s on his game its easy to play with confidence in front of him.”

- Calder on the special teams adversity.
