Berube Quotes After Backstopping Monarchs to 3-0 Lead in ECF

Berube AHL Manchester playoffs 2015 by TiltonKings goaltending prospect J.F. Berube made 17 saves on 20 shots in Manchester’s 5-3 victory in Game 3, now giving them a 3-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Final. Following the Monarchs win, Berube shared the following…

On tonight’s win:

“I think the third one is always the hardest one to go get. I think we we’re all over them. We played our game. We know we still had some mistakes and we still have better in us, so we have to make sure we fix those little things and make sure we’re prepared to play tomorrow.”

On being one win away from the finals:

“For sure it’s a good feeling right now, but like you said, we’re only in the Conference Finals and our goal is to go to the Finals. We’re still a long way from there, so we have to keep working hard and go one game at a time.”

On his game tonight:

“I didn’t get too much action, they had a couple of chances in the second, but other than that, that was pretty much it. It wasn’t a big workload for me, it was kind of hard to stay in the game, but we got the win.”

On having to tape his stick:

“There’s a rule about the knob. They came over after and I think they went over the rule and they saw it was only the tip of the nub that needed to be white, so he asked me if I wanted to change it and I just left it as it was.”

On who made him tape it:

“I think it’s the referee. I think in the second period a couple of times, they had trouble finding the puck when Mackenzie Skapski [Hartford goalie] froze the puck. Once I think they made him chance his nub, they looked at mine. It’s not a big deal.”
