"I thought we controlled every end," Gallant said. "We only had one unlucky break to kind of set up the three for them, but we were a half-inch away from making a really good shot and forcing them to one."
"They played well and made some great shots, but we had a good handle on our draw weight and that allowed us to set the angles up," Gallant said.
