HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On the response from his team:
It was really impressive seeing the team come together. Rich sticking up for the team in the first period. It brought a lot of energy, just setting a tone for the group and an expectation. Then the third period, it was just more of that and how hard guys competed and battled and found ways to come back in this game.
On Joseph Woll:
He was phenomenal tonight. He’s done a lot of good work this season. Sometimes he doesn’t get the results he deserves with some of our play in front of him. It’s game like that where you see how much he’s grown in a year and he should feel really good about that effort. He gave us a chance to win. You could tell it’s building a lot of confidence for him.
JOSEPH WOLL (57 SAVES)
On facing 60 shots:
It definitely makes it more fun. Being a goalie is a good mix of standing around and being in the action. It’s a lot more fun when you’re in the action. A little bit in the second, it felt a little long. Just a lot of shots but it was good. I’m pretty pumped that we won that one.
