WHAT THEY SAID

“Yes, we are satisfied. I think it’s been two weeks of very good sessions. We’ve been working on things that we think can improve on the team in this last part of the season. And I’m very happy with the outcome.” – Pineda

“I think to just continue to do what we’ve been doing in the past few games, working well both offensively and defensively. And for me, it’s about being prepared for however many saves I have to make, whether it’s one, two or 20 – hopefully it’s not 20 – but we just have to be be prepared for whatever when those chances come.” – Raul Gudino

“We know that we have a strong team, and we want to be a team that’s in the playoffs. So we have to take it one game at a time. We want to win this game on Saturday. And of course win the next game, but that pressure is always there.” – Matheus Rossetto
