Man of the Match:

Coach Mark Heath-Preston:

"Each member of the team needs to take more responsibility for how they play, train and work for the Bruin shirt. We just had 29 plus shots and couldn't score. We need to get back to doing the little things right and finding out who the guys are that care the most."
