Kings-Sharks Preview: Matt Greene Sees Depth vs Skill

When it comes to the Kings biggest strength heading into the series, Jack Johnson and said it’s the team’s defense, Kyle Clifford went with ‘character’ and Drew Doughty agreed with Johnson, defense.

Matt Greene finished the regular season with 243 hits – second best on the team for the third straight year. He’s also increased his totals each season, since joining the Kings for his first game with the club on October 11, 2008…coincidentally, against the San Jose Sharks.

MM: Heading into the post-season, what do you see as the Kings biggest strength?

MG: Depth. We have four lines we can play and we have six ‘D’ we can play, we can roll right through. I don’t think we need to shorten the bench for anything and we have two goaltenders who are more than capable of playing. So, I think we can stay fresh over the course of a seven-game series.

MM:  What would be your biggest concern?

MG:  With San Jose, obviously, it’s just their skill level. I think they have a great team, they have a high scoring team. They have a lot of real skilled players up front and on the back end. We just have to be ready for them. We have to do our best to slow then down and shut them down.
