Minnesota Head Coach Don Lucia
On the game...
"It was a kind of a final--at least regular season--game of the WCHA between us. I wouldn't be surprised if we see each other down the line here this year. It was a better played game (than last night). I thought both teams maybe were a little bit more relaxed tonight."
On battling back throughout the night...
"I'm proud of our guys. Two different times we were down two goals and found a way to come back and get a point out of the game tonight."
On earning a tie...
"I was proud of the way our guys came back when we were down 4-2 with nine and a half minutes. Obviously neither team is happy with a tie, but I guess it is a fitting way (to end the regular rivalry) and I'm guessing we'll probably see them again this year."
