Quotes:

“I thought we played well overall, there were some things that we still need to work on. I think our team came out strong and set the pace early and we were able to score a couple of goals [early] in the game. Unfortunately, we fell behind by two, but we showed some resiliency and were able to come back again and found a way to get into overtime. Overall, I was really happy with their performance.”

– Head coach Laura Schuler (Scarborough, Ont./Hockey Canada) on Team Canada’s performance in its opening pre-competition game

“I think we’re most looking forward to getting the tournament started. You have to have a really good pre-camp in order to get the momentum leading into the world championships. We’re just looking forward to that first game against the U.S. and to start on a positive note.”

– Jennifer Wakefield (Pickering, Ont./Linköping HC) on Team Canada looking ahead to the world championships in Kamloops
