2006 Big Ten Championship
Quarterfinals - Thursday, November 02, 2006
Game 1 - No. 5 Northwestern vs. No. 4 Penn State

Tim Lenahan, Northwestern Head Coach
On the game
"Penn State is a tough team. We let them score the goal and that really hurt us. We just can't do that in a tournament situation. They took it to us and got the equalizer. During the first overtime, we had a great chance to put it away. But we will continue to play after this. I think our season has been good enough to win a bid in the NCAA tournament. We've done a good job this year and our season is not over."

Barry Gorman, Penn State Head Coach
On the game
"It was a tough, typical Big Ten game. In reality, it's a shame that anyone had to lose. Our kids hung in there for a long time, and given our injuries, I think it's a credit to them."
