"I thought we deserved the win," coach Peter DeBoer said. "We worked hard enough for the win. We stuck with it. I liked our composure tonight. It would have been easy at different points to get frustrated or get impatient. That's what they wait for. But we didn't. It took us more than 60 minutes but we found a way."
"Our foundation is being hard to play against and not giving up too much," DeBoer said. "We haven't scored, but we don't want to play a 6-5 game. I think even on the stretches where we didn't score last year, you could always rely on that foundation."
