“I think we dominated today, getting out to a hot start; we kept things simple and everyone did their job. Going into our final game against Estevan tomorrow, we just have to continue to do our own thing. We know how to win, we just have to keep playing the same way we’ve been doing all along and we’ll be fine tomorrow.”

  • Brooks Bandits forward T.J. Hughes on his team’s perfect record

“We have had some ups and downs so far, but when our backs are up against the wall this crew has responded every time by resetting, refocusing and getting the job done. Winning games like this under the circumstances, where we needed to win, is big for our confidence and we have a belief that we do have a shot at winning. I don’t know if this gets us to the playoff round for sure, but we are confident that two points was enough and getting to the next round is what it’s about.”

  • Flin Flon Bombers head coach and general manager Mike Reagan on finding ways to win

“Since the beginning of the playoffs we’ve been playing on a line together (with Gagné and Bouchard) and then switched things up near the end. The three of us really understand how we play, we all bring something different to our line. It’s a great mix of speed, passing, vision and shooting, and our chemistry has been working really well for us.”

  • Collège Français de Longueuil forward Owen Stammer leading his team with four goals
