Corey Bricknell, head coach, Dunaújváros: We scored on two of the five power plays that we had today however they scored on three out of the seven they had. One of these stats is good the other one is not. We defended well in the 5 on 5 play and we were creative in the offensive end. We played well for 58 minutes of the game. We will play tomorrow and have a chance to improve.

Vitali Donika, head coach, Gyergyó: We left everything on the ice and played to the best of our abilities. With the travel and the previous games we were tired today. I feel we wanted to win the game more than they did and we picked up some important points. We did not play pretty but we won.
