Championship Game

Notable Quotes

"When I was being recruited I wanted to go to a place that I had a chance to win every single year. I knew that was a place like Denver. The track record there is of winning national championships, Frozen Fours."
Ian Mitchell, Denver Defenseman

"I think ultimately it's going to come down to who executes their game plan, who executes who they are the best. That's really what we're focusing on."
David Carle, Denver Coach

"The big thing is the guys that come up through the game and they have the puck all game, whether it's in prep school or junior, they have to learn the game without the puck. They start to move to college, you have to work to get the puck. You have to have linemates that work to get the puck. If you're not working as a group of five, you can go through games without touching a puck. Then you don't get a chance to assert yourself on the game."
Nate Leaman, Providence Coach

He's literally a coach's dream the way he comes to the rink every day, brings a smile, always first on the ice, always working on his game."
Nate Leaman, Providence Coach on Tyce Thompson

"Just go out and play. Just play. As coaches we don't oversaturate them with too much information, video, the rest of it. You almost want to just not show them any video, just say, Go play, have fun, play as hard as you can. You guys know what to do"
Greg Carvel, UMass Coach

"Coming into this year, we knew we had a special group. I think it's a credit to everybody on our team coming to the rink every day knowing and wanting to work hard, make everybody else better."
Cale Makar, UMass Defenseman

"I'll take this team without experience over anything else. The quality of the kids that we have, the character, the skill level, their unity, everything, they're a good group. I'm excited to go into this with them. We don't have that experience, but that's all right. We have a lot of other things I'm excited about."
Greg Carvel, UMass Coach

"I think experience, any time you can get that, it beneficial. We might not have the oldest roster, but we have had a lot of guys that have played in big stages... Having that experience is big. Coming in and knowing how hard it is to get here, what it takes to get here, cherishing every opportunity because we've been fortunate enough to win it last year... worth it. You want to get back to this point every year."
Peter Krieger, Duluth Forward

"Yeah, we have been here before. But when the puck drops, it's a hockey game regardless of who's played how many games. Hopefully our guys, because they've been there, will start the game well and hopefully play their best game. It's going to be a great hockey game."
Scott Sandelein, Duluth Coach

"You got to manage pucks. You got to make sure you're not forcing plays or turning pucks over in critical areas. There's no question. We're not a huge east-west team. We're more of a vertical north team. We have to have support and speed and chips, get after it... We know they pressure. We're going to have to make plays under pressure. We got to learn to handle that. Hopefully we can do the same thing to them. It's when we're playing well, too. But I think just support, puck support, just managing pucks is going to be critical. Not just through the neutral zone, but all over the rink. If you want to generate some speed, play your game, you have to get through there. To nullify them, you have to make sure everybody's doing their job and making sure you're above people, not allowing any out-numbered rushes."
Scott Sandelin, Duluth Coach
