Quotes:

“That was a terrific exhibition of what para hockey can be at the highest level. That was two teams, laying it all on the line tonight. When you see an effort like that, you are proud to be a part of this game.”

- Head coach Russ Herrington (Unionville, Ont.) on the game.

“Down 2-0, the way we came back and battled through was exciting. If anything, we’re leaving today with a lot more belief than we had coming into the game, and I think the Americans are leaving with a little more doubt, and that’s exciting for us moving forward.”

- McGregor on the rivalry with the United States.

“Everybody was going tonight. We got better every shift, and it was fun to see everyone gelling and putting out that kind of effort. Both teams came with speed and so much physicality and it was a lot of fun to play like that. We know we can play at that pace and it’s important to follow that up tomorrow.”

- Tyrone Henry (Ottawa, Ont.) on carrying the energy into the semi-final.
