    POSTGAME QUOTES
    HEAD COACH JOHN GRUDEN
    On the team’s performance:
    I liked our bench and I liked our game, up until they scored a couple of goals. We had to respond. They had their push.
    We played good in the first and then we were fortunate enough to get those goals, get the push to give us the victory.
    Great response from being down and we found a way to get it done at the end of the game.
    LUKE CAVALLIN (FIRST CAREER AHL WIN)
    On his first win:
    It feels great. It’s been a long time coming. The boys did a great job out there and it was a lot of fun. Those close ones are
    fun to win. I thought it was really exciting the whole time. That’s a big one.
