Postgame Quotes...

Shane Gostisbehere
On the difference in tonight's game:
"Those guys right there; I don't even know what's happening right now honestly, but those guys, my brothers, they're amazing. They do everything for me."

On his individual performance:
"Good, I don't care, the team won, that's all that matters. I don't care about anything else, we're national champions. I don't even know what to say right now."

On Union's growth as a program:
"I don't think anyone's going to be calling us a Cinderella anymore. That's all I've got to say."

Mat Bodie
On the team's approach to the game:
"Just one shift at a time. This is the biggest game of our lives, hands down, but you've got to treat it like any other game. It was tough, I had people texting me, people calling me and stuff, and, you know, it was real tough to keep that mindset but with our sport psychologist we were able to get that done."

On changes for the second and third periods:
"I don't know, I don't think much changed. We didn't change our game plan, we tightened it up a little defensively, but both teams are better defensively than a 7 - 4 score shows. It's just one of those games where crazy bounces happen. We just wanted to stick with our process. We thought we were playing pretty well and great things happened."

Union College Head Coach Rick Bennett
On how it feels to win a national championship:
"A little bit speechless right now, but just happy for our school, for this program and the past players. It's an unbelievable experience."

Coach's Opening Quotes...

Coach York, Boston College
"We're very excited to come to a Frozen Four. Every year is different, every year is unique, and nobody's guaranteed this... in September we sat down with our captains and tried to outline our team and some goals, long term goals. Of course, at Boston College we're looking at being part of the regular season trophy, our playoff championship, but in the back of our minds, it's always, hey, can we get back to the Frozen Four and compete for a National Championship? We're not just here to look at the liberty bell and enjoy Philadelphia; we want to compete for that really shiny trophy."

Coach Lucia, University of Minnesota
"It's obviously exciting. I'm really proud of our team and what they've been able to accomplish this year. It's a tremendous Frozen Four field. Probably one of those years where any of the four teams could win it. I think it's going to make for an exciting tournament for the fans... It's kind of nice to go to a new area, a new venue and to play in another Frozen Four."

Coach Hakstol, University of North Dakota
"It's good to be here. I guess maybe the biggest thing is it's nice to get a good practice in and get that under our belts and settle into a regular routine as we go into game day. So everything since we've been on the ground here in Philadelphia has been tremendous... it's really evident that a lot of time and effort continues to go into this great event and we're excited to be here.

Coach Bennett, Union College
"It's great to be here. We're coming back for a second time in three years. We feel very honored, privileged. I want to say congratulations to BC, Minnesota, and North Dakota as well. We're looking forward to playing here on Thursday night."

Player's Quotes...

Johnny Gaudreau, Boston College
"We're excited to be back to the Frozen Four and back here to Philly. Like Coach and Bill said, our goal all year was to get to Philly, and we're here now, and our next goal is to win a National Championship. All the guys are excited that we're here and we're ready to go."

Nate Condon, University of Minnesota
"Well, the thing that we kind of talked about is last time we were at the Frozen Four, we were still in the rebuilding stage of our team. We were really happy to be there and we had a great time in Tampa Bay. But the mentality really wasn't there that we came here to win a championship. Obviously, we wanted to win, but it wasn't the same feeling that we have this time. This time our team is expected to do well and we're expected to win championships. That's been our mindset all season... So I think the mentality is that we're here to win, and that's what we're trying to preach to the younger guys."

Mark McMillian, University of North Dakota
"It's exciting to be here. We worked our way and earned our way here. Like coach said, it's been great since the second we landed here. It's been nice to see Philly a little bit and to get going tomorrow."

Mat Bodie, Union College
"We're happy to be back and hopefully we can do a little bit better than we did last time. Philly is a great city; I love it here. We're just excited to play. We're ready to go get prepared for BC and really excited to be playing."

Coach Lucia, University of Minnesota
"Whatever is going to happen is going to happen. I think that you get to this stage, you've worked all year long. Really at this point, you hope your team is on autopilot because if we have to push and prod at this time of the year as coaches, that's all been done October, November and December. We tell our guys all year long that sometimes we're critical of them after a win.

But we're coaching for the end of the year. How important little details of your game become at this time of the year because one mistake and your season's over. I think our guys have bought into that. We've kept it with ourselves. We've had some of our former players send emails. We've posted them. We've got the poster in our locker room with some of our former players. Obviously, you get a lot of texts and emails from former players, and they want us to do well. I'm happy for our guys that get to experience both the Frozen Four and certainly playing in a national title game. As a coach, I've been on both sides, won one in overtime, lost one in overtime. So, I know how it feels each way. We just want our guys to be in a situation tomorrow where they feel they can play free. That they can play to win and play aggressively. Because if you're going to play on your heels this time of year, it's awfully difficult to win."


Coach Bennett, Union College
"It seems we've gone through a lot of these past weekends, which we're very fortunate that these guys have obviously given us a chance to have these moments here. They're probably sick of my "let's not get too high or too low" speech. But I don't have to say too much at all because these guys know the drill. I mean, they act like professionals. They make it easy, basically, after games.
Minnesota has a lot of depth. Obviously their goaltender is phenomenal. We have to make sure that we get some traffic in front of him, you know. That is standard coach speak that you're going to hear. In general, we have to be sharp. It's more about us. I feel the same as it was last night against Boston College."
