Franklin pulls away from Triton late

(Continued)

“It was a good job for us, we played for three periods,” said Panthers coach Chris Spillane. “I thought we had a really good third period. We took care of our opportunities, so it was a good win. We want to play our best hockey this last week of the season so that we’re confident. We just had a good start, and if we can finish the week this way, I’ll feel good about it.”

Wile was at no loss for words after the game.

“Big players play big in big games,” said Wile. “And as I look here at the score sheet, their three captains are all over it. This is why I wanted to play this game. For some guys, I wonder just how serious this is for them. That, unfortunately, is where we’re at.

“That team knows how to win,” Wile said of Franklin. “We just faced a (TD Bank) Garden team three years in a row. So we have to learn. We have a lot of work to do. We did not come out with the same energy as we did in the past two games. We did not attack. We watched the puck.”
