head coach, Jim Montgomery praised the team’s efforts after tying the game with a little less than two minutes left in the third quarter, stating, “Our great players made great plays at a time when we needed to tie the game.”

looking toward a four-game road trip, starting with a pit stop in Edmonton to take on Connor
McDavid and the Oilers.
