WCF Game 4 postgame quotes: Head coach Mike Stothers

On the loss, the season and looking ahead: Our best game was the last game. That was the best game we played. I thought we played a great 60 minutes, well, and then some. I was proud of them. You’re down three games to none and the last one, the third game, we weren’t great, we weren’t very good at all. And they scored early tonight and you could think well, it’s a pretty tough road, but we dug in, nobody was ready to go home yet. So, you think back to Big Mike, standing all alone in the slot. […]

WCF Game 4 postgame quotes: Mersch, Dowd, Backman, LoVerde

Michael Mersch, on the difference in the series: They jumped out on us. They beat us at home and beat us twice at their rink. When we got down, they kept capitalizing. They’re a really opportunistic team so you’ve got to tip your caps to them. Mersch, on the Reign finally being able to execute their game plan but it coming too late in the series: You’d like to play your best games from Game 1 but we had to try to battle back and they did a really good job at keeping every game close and staying in front […]

WCF Game 4 notebook: Reign take ‘one game’ approach

It’s not the ideal spot to be in, but there’s only one way to look at it. “It’s just a matter of, ‘OK, let’s just approach this as one shift, one period, one game and take it from there,’” Reign head coach Mike Stothers said Thursday morning.

Q&A with AHL president/CEO David Andrews

This week I had the chance to chat with AHL president/CEO David Andrews on the many quirks of the AHL including schedules, one-referee systems and his thoughts on the California teams with one regular season now in the books.
