THEY SAID IT:
“It’d been a while since I had an attempt at the AHL level, I was 2/2 in the NHL, but I’ve been so snake bitten, I needed one of those to go in. I missed the shot, I saw it eventually was going to go in and I just thought it was so fitting for it to be the game-winning goal.” – a joyous Beau Bennett following the victory.
“We came out really strong, we were moving our feet and we stayed disciplined. We let up a bit in the second there and got into some penalty trouble, but at the end of the day, we got the win and that’s what matters.” – Defenseman Dysin Mayo following tonight’s victory.
THIS WEEK’S NOTES:
The team will practice in Tucson until departing for Stockton Thursday.
