Quotes:

 

On the changing game... "Tonight was one of those games where things weren't going well and your littlest mistakes end up in the back of the net. We'll have to make some adjustments but I'm standing here smiling... we won."

On bouncing back from losing a lead... "Never too high and never too low. I think that's something that's been creeping into our game - when we're playing well, scoring goals and we're up, everyone's up. But when we get scored on, everyone's real low. That's not the way we need to be. We need to be Steady Eddie and keep going on."

On Eric Robinson... "We're expecting big things from him."
