Opening commentary: Definitely irritating. Yesterday, giving up a past due function. We did not get started off temporarily within the first duration. We were given higher as the sport went on. I believed we began to roll the cube in some way. Even on that ultimate play, we were given 4 avid gamers again. They had been targeted at the puck and did not select one participant. Colgate may be very professional and will put the puck away in scenarios like that. So optimistically, we will be able to be informed to keep up a correspondence and protect a bit more difficult.
Q: You guys unfolded in opposition to all top-ranked groups. Not the kind of get started you sought after after ultimate season. What is your guys’ mindset going into the Boston College collection subsequent weekend and the Ivy collection after?
A: This is like our soccer staff enjoying in opposition to Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia. We’re going in opposition to the heavyweights. We’re no longer curious about information early within the 12 months, however we are curious about getting higher. We need to be an elite program. We do not want to simply knock at the door and rejoice ethical wins or losses. So, enjoying in opposition to Wisconsin, Colgate and Duluth. We’re proper there and a few performs away. We’re interested by that.
Q: You had two early energy performs within the first duration and then you definitely surrendered a function. What do you wish to have to do to capitalize on those benefits?
A: I feel that entire first duration was once out of sync. After a gut-wrenching loss the day before today, I believed we might pop out swinging and we did not. So that was once disappointing. I don’t believe it was once in particular our play. I feel we did not piece any continuity in combination. I believed we received momentum as we were given into the second one duration.
Q: It was once a tricky 2nd duration. Until about six mins, you handiest ran off six pictures. What changes did you’re making going into the 3rd?
A: Our avid gamers are competitive and they are taking consequences. There was once one in all middle ice the place the Colgate participant had her head down and bumped into her defender and we were given known as for it. We have to take care of the nice officiating. The indisputable fact that lets rally across the penalty kill was once truly just right and it more or less gave us a spark and a bit lifestyles to play exhausting within the 3rd. So, there were not truly any changes.

Q: You guys suffered a loss that was once just about in the similar means as ultimate night time. How do you keep targeted?
