“We want to be a solid team on the road but (also) at home,” said goaltender Yann Danis. “I think it's important to play real well at home and let the other teams in the league know that's it's not going to be easy when they come here to get two points. And I think we showed that this weekend.”

THREE STARS

1. Yann Danis

In his 28-save shutout, he delivered 14 saves in the final period.

2. Philippe Cornet

He was the difference-maker offensively, scoring the game's only two goals.

3. Ryan O'Marra

Of the team's four assists, O'Marra had an assist on the game-winner.
