"I was happy with a lot of things I saw this weekend," said head coach Keven Thomsen. "Likewise, I saw a lot of things we need to work on in practice. We are a very young team with a lot of these kids not having a whole lot of experience at this level of hockey, which means we have some habits that we need to change. We were a little rusty, but all in all, I thought we played pretty good hockey for our first two games of the season."
