INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- I need to get working on some video here, but here is what some of the guys had to say after their 4-3 double-overtime victory over the Missouri Mavericks.
That victory tied the best-of-seven Turner Conference finals at two games apiece.
Frankie DeAngelis, who scored the power-play winner: “I found a seam and was going to the net and (Colin Chaulk) just put it right on my tape. All I had to do was control it and put it in the empty net."
Chaulk: “I don’t want to sound cliché, but at this point, really, tired is for losers. You’ve got five months to rest, so you’ve got to, you know, go after it.”
Defensman Jamie Milam, whose goal forced overtime: “It feels good to tie it up. It feels good to win in their building. It feels great to win it in overtime. We’re tired but that’s because we work hard, and that’s what you should credit this win to. We didn’t let ourselves get down because they caught up; we kept playing our game. We knew we’d get a bounce or a chance. We never say die. I know it’s cliché. But this team is the best team I’ve ever played on in that regard. Nobody ever thinks we’re done.”
Goalie Nick Boucher, who had 11 brilliant saves in the first overtime: “They got some good chances and I was able to make some saves to keep the game going. It was a gutsy game for us. After going up 3-1 and then getting in penalty trouble, they found a way to tie it but we got the win. Hopefully the tied has turned and we’ll start to get some breaks.”
