“Leadership.  We have a good room in there and our leaders had the group ready to go today.  Right from the drop of the puck we were ready to skate and I think it showed most of the game.” – Roadrunners Head Coach Jay Varady post-game praising his team’s effort and explaining why he felt his team was successful in Friday’s decisive victory.

“It’s a 60-minute game, so you have to stay composed.  Anything can happen at any point during the game. I think we did just that.  There was a little stretch there in the third where they were taking it to us but we stayed positive on the bench and we knew anything could happen with the talent we have.” – Game-Winning Goal scorer Andy Mielediscussing his team’s mentality as they made their way toward their third win in four days Saturday.
