Head coach Katie Crowley

"I thought it was a great first game for us. That's a tough team over there and I thought they played really well. They're quick and fast and put us on our heels a little bit. I liked the way we responded for the most part. We certainly have a few things we need to work on, but the atmosphere in the building was great."

"We really need to take care of that puck a little bit better (tomorrow), especially around those blue lines. When we're in our defensive zone, we really need to make sure we get that puck out of that zone when we have the opportunity to. And the same goes for the offensive side. When you get to that blue, you can get it in deep. I thought today we were rolling pretty good. we got that forecheck going. Putting it deep, getting that forecheck, getting on them a little bit deeper I think would be beneficial for tomorrow night."
