Curt Fraser: Please comment on tonight's game.
Reporter: Just a great game for our team tonight. We had huge efforts from a lot of guys, started right in goal tonight. Smitty was outstanding, and the goals by Cracknell, Murphy and Brule with an empty net. Just made it a real special night. We got a spec in the winning side I guess.
It was a good night for us as well. If the season ended today, we would play those guys in the playoffs. So a real big night for us. When we played Kazan the first time, we fell behind early and we lost the game 5-0. But to come back like this at home just gives us a boost of confidence and something to build on for the next game.
Coming off those last 2 games, having the leads and giving it up and losing the games, really hurt our team. And the guys just wanted to finish off right before the break with a huge win. They won’t take no for an answer tonight. They had to win that game and they knew it. They came through for us. It’s a great night for our team.
