Joseph Cramarossa opened the scoring 11 seconds after the opening face off and Jake Cardwell made it 2-0 for the No. 1 Bulls with a power-play goal early in the second.

Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
