After defeating Russia, Canada Skip, Heather Nedohin
“We are really pleased to win. We got up there early with a three and we gave up a steal of two, but she made a great last shot to get in there and we had a couple of angles go bad on us, so it’s was no big deal, it was the early part of the game. If you look at the scoreboard it’s only 3-3 - it’s a not a big deal. But I liked the way we came out of the hack first end.
“This is only Tuesday, we’ve got another game today, there’s a lot of the World’s left.
“I’ve seen Russia a lot, they are ones that are on the tour. I recognised every one of them, the only uncertainty is what their line-up is going to be - it’s ever changing, but we know them very well and can adjust to the shots they make.
On fifth player Amy Nixon coming in, Nedohin said: “Amy has got it on. From bringing us food to cleaning the rocks to throwing the rocks, she is our superstar fifth. There’s so many elements - you don’t want someone who would get awestruck by the lights and the event. We know Amy has not been to a World’s but there’s no difference between the Olympics and the World’s.
"She brings so much experience to the locker room, to the pre-game chat, if there’s any one player who can talk, she’s got it - you don’t need to be training or educating our fifth. We aren’t and we have a hoot out there with her, she fits right in. “
