“It was tough. We had the lead for most of that game and obviously it is not the result we wanted, but we showed some good things out there. We need to focus on the next game, focus on the next shift, taking care of our defensive zone and getting better every time we step on the ice.”
- Macklin Celebrini (Vancouver, B.C./Chicago, USHL) on what is needed from Canada Black moving forward.
“We generated enough scoring chances to win the game. When we had the lead, we just did not extend it. I liked the way we played; we got better as the game went on. Going into a game is about the process and making sure you are playing the right way. The team that wins is the one that capitalizes on their opportunities. We need to turn the page quick and get ready for tomorrow.”
- Canada Black head coach Mark O’Leary (Owen Sound, Ont./Moose Jaw, WHL) on getting ready to face the U.S. on Tuesday.
“It was a huge bounce-back game defensively from yesterday. Giving up 29 shots against the top 20 players in the United States shows a good effort from our team. A couple of breakdowns and lack of intensity cost us three points. We did all the right things, we just lost focus on a couple of their goals or else it would have been a different story. We played the right way today, the Canadian way."
- Canada Red head coach Greg Walters (Toronto, Ont./Owen Sound, OHL) on his team’s effort.
“We did not come out as hard as we wanted to. We progressed as the game went on and we got way better. We need to keep playing the right way and eliminate the little mistakes. We have two big games coming up and every little thing is going to matter. Moving forward we need to be at our best”
- Catton on the importance of Canada Red’s upcoming games.
