Quotes:

 

 

On the scoreless start... "Both teams started slow... no one could find their legs."

On taking them to overtime... "We weren't at our best but it was good to get a point."

On Kivlenieks... "That was a good test of a team regardless of playing back to back nights. He stood tall in there and it was a good test for him."

On standings... "That's the way it's going right now but we're still finding a way to be in games. We're not giving up many goals, we're just not scoring as many. We've just got to figure that out and we' should be fine."
