Quarterfinals – opponent, date and time to be determined
“First off you congratulate the team on winning the [group in the]
preliminary round. As a team you have to talk and share the successes that
have made it worthwhile, but the biggest thing is that we know we didn’t
play our best game. It’s great that we were able to win, but we have to go
back to the drawing board and look at some of the areas we can improve, in
particular our puck management. [We will have to] just tighten up a bit and
make some adjustments moving forward.”
Head coach Troy Ryan (Spryfield, N.S.) on a perfect prelims
“It was a little bit of a messy win. I think our special teams were huge
for us, our goaltender was huge and our defence blocked a lot of shots down
the stretch. It was a good sign that we could find a way to win.”
- Jenner on the key to defeating the U.S.
“As a goalie you just need to give your team an opportunity to win. I know
it might not have been the start we wanted as a team, but sometimes when
your team needs you, you have to be there and that’s what I did today.”
- Desbiens on her 51-save performance
