HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On tonight’s game:
The first half of the game Laval came out like we expected. They’ve been consistent like that all year. Puck management, turnovers in the middle of the rink, turnovers at the blue line – the effort was there, we just didn’t manage playing a tough opponent. We kind of fueled their offence. Stuff we’ve talked a lot about. There’s still some common mistakes the group is fighting through but the real encouraging thing is the second half to be outshot as much as we were and not give up on the game and find a way to battle back. It was encouraging and should lead us into tomorrow’s contest.
