“Sometimes you lose focus and stop understanding that you are going to have more success as a team out there. We can not let ourselves get down. [We have] three more games to win, so we have to go into those thinking that good things are going to happen. We have to move forward and do our best to get through our next game against Slovakia.”

-         Head coach Howie Draper (Edmonton, Alta./University of Alberta, CW) on the loss

We are doing a good job handling our emotions. Obviously it’s a huge rivalry and we wanted to win, but we are already looking ahead to our next game. We generated momentum [while playing at five-on-five], which is good for our team but we need to make sure that we are getting more shots on net. We are going to regroup as a team tonight, and we will be ready to go tomorrow.”

-         Sarah MacEachern (Cornwall, P.E.I./Etobicoke, OWHA U22 Elite) on tonight’s game and focusing on next game
