Hear what the players and Coach Berry have to say about tomorrow’s match-up with Minnesota in Las Vegas. The game will occur at Orleans Arena.
“It’s such a cool thing to look forward to. All of the games are important, but it’s such a cool thing to look forward to. We played in MSG my freshman year and now in Vegas, it’s such a cool experience to do that. To play against a great team like Minnesota, it’s going to be a fun weekend.”
“Obviously it’s something in the back of your mind. That game is circled on our calendar, we don’t like them, they don’t like us. It’s going to be fun especially in that environment.”
“Those games are fun. I remember playing at MSG my sophomore year and the year before we were at the Frozen Four and I remember going into that game at MSG thinking it was a Frozen Four game. Those are always huge games to be a part of and playing at new venues and especially playing against Minnesota will be awesome.”
“It’s the same game. I try not to make anything of who we’re playing or where we’re playing. It’s cliche, but try to approach things the same way and not let a big game get to your head. Then you’re just going to overthink things and you’ll probably make more mistakes. I think having an even-keeled approach to every game, big or small. Obviously, there are no small games, but just approaching it the same way and playing the same way.”
“The game is played on the same ice sheet, same everything. You just have to take the approach that it’s just another game.”
Coach Brad Berry:
“I think it’s something we have created over the last few years of having that student-athlete and fan experience. You know, the destination game where you’re going into a big environment, an NHL environment. We played Boston College in New York and now we’re facing one of our storied rivals of the past in Minnesota, so there’s a lot of storylines going into it.”
