Training Quotes

“We have to bounce back, especially with two losses in a row now. We had a good build against Tampa, and we earned a lot of respect throughout the league there. Ultimately, we worked on a lot of things going forward and our forward play this week, and I think it’s promising going into a big clash with Hartford.” – Jeremy Rafanello
