Minnesota Head Coach Don Lucia

On tonight's win and Air Force...

"I liked the way we played tonight. I think we had a good meeting and, number one, we respected Air Force, what they've been able to accomplish the last half a dozen years--five years in the NCAAs, winning their conference tournament to get in. Everybody they've played in that situation, it's been a tough out for them. They played the type of game I expected. They skate well. They compete hard."

On Jerry York setting the NCAA record for career wins...

"I went down and met him after the game. It's unbelievable, 925 games. He's been doing it a long time. I told him, 'I'm no threat. Don't worry about that. I won't be doing it that long.' He's always been a class guy. For me -- I've been doing this a long time -- it was kind of neat to see it happen here. I'm sure he would like to have had it happen back out east, probably against BU if he had his druthers. But they've been an outstanding program, a measuring stick for everybody in college hockey."

Minnesota Freshman Ryan Reilly

On his first career goal...

"It felt really good. What can you say? It was 1-0 and then (Christian) Isackson made a great play down low and fed me, and luckily, I was there and put it away. It felt so good."
