"They played great and I can honestly say I don't think any of us were expecting this type of performance. They were great. You have to give them credit for that."
"It was an unusual environment. We're used to having the jotter arena at this time of year. It's unfortunate that it was that way, but both teams had to deal with it."
"Don't focus on the victory, focus on the task."
"You have to absolutely commit to whatever your process is and attack that process every single day, of trying to get better, take steps forward, without getting caught up in the immediate results that everybody wants to see. That's probably the biggest challenge."
"Donâ€™t brush anything under the rug. Donâ€™t point fingers or do the blame game. A team is a family, and weâ€™re in this together."
