Every night, the last three games he's played, the onus has kind of been on the guys up front. We haven't scored enough goals to give him that support, and we also haven't done our part defensively.

You just can't put it into words. I know I haven't stopped smiling yet. This whole game was great for the program.

I still remember that, the feeling we got. We looked at each other on the bench and said 'Let's go.' We scored one, let's go again. And two shifts later we scored another one. We told coach, get us out there. Ride us. It was a pretty neat feeling.

#Bench

At the start of every practice, we skated around the ice and passed back and forth to (one another's) partner. It was pretty basic and pretty monotonous after a while, but it kind of gives you the idea that, hey, back to square one.

They're going to support us and that place is going to be packed every night, I'm sure of it. They're going to be loud, they're going to be screaming. It's going to be a mini-Kohl Center feeling that we're going to have.

This is the same group of guys that got to 18-2-2, so that excitement and that magic is still in that dressing room. The feeling we have now is, 'Hey, we're back to where we were, if not better, the way we've been playing.' To still be able to score goals while at the same time not allowing these guys to score anything, you feel awesome.

This is the ultimate stage in college hockey and we're excited. I don't feel any pressure. I don't think these guys feel any extra pressure, it's more of an excitement. We've been saying we couldn't wait for this time to come.

It's a huge emotional lift for this group (to score first). In the locker room, that's what the guys always say, 'Let's get that first goal, let's jump on them early.' It takes the pressure off. You allow yourself to relax a little bit knowing you got that first one.

The guys in the dressing room feel as good as they have all year. The confidence is there and we feel we deserve to be here. And we're 60 minutes away from a championship.
