Quotes:

“First and foremost, it’s nice to have the opportunity to play against some international competition, something the girls have waited a long time to do. I think there are some great things that happened in the game and some things we need to work on. The opportunity to play against Finland [who we play in the first game of the preliminary round] gives us some valuable game footage we will break down over the next two days and get ready for our next one.

  • Head coach Troy Ryan (Spryfield, N.S) on his team’s performance

“We all know that Finland is a great opener for us. I still remember two years ago that game we lost against them [in the semifinals at women’s worlds], so we wanted to send a message early on. It’s great to play against great opponents and it’s important for our group. Every game is going to be hard and we want to be ready every chance we get.”

  • Mélodie Daoust (Valleyfield, Que.) on the rematch with Finland

“We definitely got a lot of practice on our penalty kill today. We were successful on it and it gives us a lot of confidence moving forward. In a short-term competition like this, special teams are the difference, so it was great we got a lot of practice at it today.

  • Clark on the play of special teams
