CCF Game 1: JF Berube Comments after Monarchs 3-2 OT Win

Berube JF AHL Final Game 1 by Rich TiltonLA Kings goaltnending prospect JF Berube made 15 saves on 17 shots, backstopping the Manchester Monarchs to a 3-2 OT win in Game 1 of the 2015 AHL Calder Cup Final. Following the team’s win over the visiting Utica Comets, the French Canadian netminder shared the following…

On picking up the victory in Game 1:

“Yeah its huge. Game one is always important to get momentum for the series. I think we did a good job. We were intense; we picked up right where we left off and we put the pressure on them all game. It was a good game for us.”

On his personal performance in Game 1:

“It was good. Bad goal, whatever, we won, that’s all that matters. I felt good about my game and everyone feels good about my game so that’s all that matters.”

On if he expected a quick start like he and Jacob Markstrom experienced:

“Yeah for sure. Both teams are trying to get the momentum in the game and that’s the way you’re going to get it, by putting pucks at the net and creating chances like that. That was to be expected and we were both ready.”

On if facing only 3 shots during a 20 minute stretch factored into the second goal going in:

“No, not at all. It is something all season long, long stretches where I didn’t get too many shots. Whatever happened on that goal happened. I have no explanations or reasons. Its a bad goal, whatever, it is over and we got the win.”

On his save in a two-on-one situation:

“It was a two-on-one, quick two-on-one. We know they like to create momentum off rushes, it is one of their strength and it is where they get most of their goals so I was ready for it. My D played really good on it he gave me the shot all the way. It was all just that I was going to face a shot so I was ready.”

On if the long layoff affected the team:

“I think it was really good. I think guys were maybe a little too excited at the beginning. But we settled down and played our game, played intense and worked hard. i think our success comes from how hard we work.”

On what he learned about Utica:

“They’re really skilled. They have skilled forwards and they can be dangerous off the rush. We have to make sure we don’t create too may turnovers and we need to play confident like we do.”

On tying Jonathan Bernier’s franchise record for most playoff appearances:

“I don’t know, it is an honor. I don’t know what to say about that, but obviously I wouldn’t be there without my teammates. It is the whole team it isn’t only me. The way we have been playing during the playoffs and all season long, that is the reason why were here and the reason we get so many games in playoffs.”
