"It doesn't change anything about the way I play or the way Carly plays or the way Greenie plays," Alzner said. "It just gives us a little bit more piece of mind that those guys are also back there and can log the minutes and play hard. I'm extremely happy about it. It just evens the whole D corps out, and I think it makes us one of the better corps in the league."
"It was nice," Alzner said of getting the two-goal lead. "It would have made the game more exciting if it was a close one, at the same time, you get more breathing room and you play more confident, too. You're not afraid to make those extra pinches, and you notice teams will sit back, and that's when teams pour it on."
