“Our nervous excitement showed early in the first period. We talked before the game about [the rivalry], I think every kid dreams about playing in the Canada-U.S. matchup, especially with the opportunity to win a gold medal on the line. I liked our second period a lot better; we were able to get into our depth and roll all four lines. Czechia is a good team; they are structured and sound defensively, so we will have to earn our scoring chances tomorrow. The fans are probably going to be crazy; it is going to be a great experience for us to persevere and come out with the victory.”

– Head coach Alan Letang (Renfrew, ON/Sarnia, OHL) on the opportunity to defend gold.

“I think it was a great effort from our power-play unit tonight. [Cristoforo] made a good pass and I tried to put the puck on the net, and it just went in. Everybody took care of their responsibility out there. [Playing for gold] means a lot. Since we were young, we have dreamed of this moment. We have to focus on the little details, and everyone will bring their A-game so we can get that gold medal.”

– Massé on finding success on the power play.

“We came together as a group today. We had some nerves going into the first period but we battled back, stuck to our special teams system and played some hard-work hockey. As a kid you always dream of playing against the United States, and now to be here is an awesome feeling. I don’t think we realized how big the rivalry is; once we got on the ice you can tell both teams do not like each other. We are happy to be a part of the rivalry and happy to come out on the other side with a win.”

– Spence on playing against the rival United States.
