Selected quotes:

Head Coach Guy Gosselin (Grafton, WI)

The boys came prepared to play. There's a lot of energy in the locker room prior to the game and we knew they're ready. And they came out and they moved the puck, they used their speed and did a really good job in the first period.

They're excited. They're bringing excitement to the rink every day and they're on that. They're on top of their game and we're hoping that we do peak at the right time.

Ralph DeQuebec (San Pedro, CA)

It's pretty cool - you know, they got really loud in there, but I think we set ourself up for success before the game started by making sure we came in with some energy and, you know, so we went up pretty early and we just kept feeding off that, so I think the boys - that's what we need to do to be successful.

Josh Misiewicz (La Grange, IL)

We're just moving the puck around, not letting other people play. We're playing our game the way we want to play and we're just getting open, talking and it's working out really well.

It's a tight group, we just want to take care of each other, just like we need to be together, we need to win this together, so it's definitely a group trying to do one goal - we have one goal.
