St. Norbert coach Rob Morgan on the third period:  “I thought we competed a lot harder and started winning some battles both on and off the puck. Started putting pucks to the net. They’re an outstanding hockey team, and they’re No. 1 in the country for a reason. Our kids came out and they played hard. They wanted to learn from this, and they had a great third period.”

 

Plattsburgh goalie Sydney Aveson:  “Not a lot of teams get the opportunity to play in a quarterfinal game let alone get back to the final four. And I’m stoked about it, and I’m excited with our chances. I think our team is ready to go.”

 

Plattsburgh coach Kevin Houle:  “Certainly our goal is to win a national championship, and it would be a disappointment not to win.”

 

Teal Gove on not facing Norwich— and her younger sister, Tyne— in the semis:  “I’m disappointed because I really wanted to see her. I haven’t seen her in a month. But I’m relieved for my mom, first and foremost. I know she really feels so bad for my sister, but I know she could not have handled it.”
