Head Coach Michael Tuton, says it was a back and forth series.
"We knew Friday we have to take advantage of the travel day." Tuton said. "Saturday, we knew they were going to be rested and (bounce back). Sunday, we just had to get back to work and play the Huskies style of hockey that's been successful for us all year."
Huskies forward Rob Warner says their top line of Adam Henderson, Kane Dawe, and Evan Campbell, came alive in the series.
"We had the character guys show up." Warner told reporters after the victory. "That one line, just unbelievable, (an) unstoppable kind of thing when they're going, they're going. They're really the heart and soul of the team because (Henderson) and (Campbell) just score, and (Dawe) is such an agitator out there. It's a lot of fun to watch."
Huskies will contend for the Coy Cup in Terrace starting March 22nd.
