“It was a really tight game with a lot of penalties. I did not think our penalty kill was great near the beginning of the game, but we got much better and at the end our PK was rock solid. We need to do some fine-tuning on the power play because we were forcing plays today, but I thought our five-on-five play was solid. We did not give [Slovakia] much to work with aside from a few minor breakdowns, and I like the way our game is progressing.”

“[Montembeault] has been really solid since we came together. He played well in our pre-tournament game and has been poised in both tournament games he has played. He is really assertive, and we have a lot of confidence in him.”

  • Head coach André Tourigny (Nicolet, Que./Arizona, NHL) on special teams play and the play of Montembeault

“It was a hard-fought battle all the way to the end, and [Montembeault] was great and kept us in the game. We needed to stick with our game plan, and obviously there was some frustration when [Slovakia] was playing so well defensively and we could not get much going on offence. We know we are going to face some adversity in every game we play, so we just need to stay positive and keep getting chances.”

  • Quinn on the challenge of playing Slovakia

“It is a little bit nerve-wracking [in the shootout], and shootouts are not usually the best part of my game. It is a one-on-one situation and you never know what could happen, but I know I needed to do my part. We got a big goal [from Quinn] and I just needed to make the last save, and I am glad we got the win. We played a good game today, but we did not capitalize on some opportunities. We are going to keep building off this win, but overall we feel good about our play right now.”
