    POSTGAME QUOTES
    HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
    On today’s game:
    To start the game, some good life, some good jump. The guys did a good job sticking to the game plan early. We
    generated some good scoring chances; we had a lot of momentum going. A couple of unfortunate bounces. The real
    positive takeaway early in the game was even with the goals against, the bench stayed positive. Their process today was
    much better than it was even last weekend early on in the game and even in the second, we found a way to generate
    momentum, start fighting back. The early goal in the third, you can tell the bench deflated a little bit. It’s tough looking at
    these games. You look at the final result and it’s definitely not good enough and not a result that we want to have. If we’re
    comparing last weekend and how we came out for the first half of this game, there was much improved gameplay for our
    team. So, we’re going to stick to some of the positives here at the beginning. Tomorrow is another big opportunity for us,
    and you could tell this one stings. These two last losses were big, and we need to make sure that when we’re coming to
    play and we’re generating offence, there’s got to be more structure to our offence. It’s a little loose right now and we’re
    going to tighten it up and make sure that we’re putting ourselves in a good spot offensively and defensively, not just
    offensively.
    On Brett Seney’s performance through three games:
    Really impressive. His work ethic, the way he thinks the game. For someone his size even at this level, he doesn’t just
    rely on soft skill. He works hard, he helps get pucks back, he puck pressures. It’s just easy to read off of him. He’s just
    doing everything the right way and he gets rewarded for it, for playing the right way.
