RYAN MOUGENEL, HEAD COACH
“Sometimes these games are just galvanizing and I think you saw tonight how much guys care. I thought it was a real good turning point for us. There’s still things in our game that we’ve got to get better at, but those are those intangibles that I believe are so important and even bigger than the wins sometime. I’m really happy with how the guys came together and I think that was a big turning point for us.
“The other night kind of stung a little bit. We talked about it as a group, as a staff. We talked about how we can improve some things and be more clear in our message to the guys.
“It says a lot about some of the older guys in here. They did a great job of helping relay that message. We’ve got the highest quality vets, I think, in the league in Wagner, Moore, Fogarty, and Senyshyn. These guys do a great job of relaying our message. As a staff, we took a lot of ownership in that last loss. That starts with us and the guys bought in, so that’s encouraging.”
