Kings win 2-0 – post game quotes from LA locker room

We can delve into the specific numbers tomorrow – but it sure seems like when the Kings take more than 30 shots on goal, the win.  Tonight they put 33 shots on Sharks’ goalie Antti Niemi and skated off the ice at Staples Center with a 2-0 win.

After the game, Jonathan Quick and Ethan Moreau shared a few thoughts…

Quick on his 200th game in the NHL – “I didn’t even know it was my 200th game until Greenie [Matt Greene] let me know about five minutes before the game started. They go quickly and tonight was a big win. Everybody battled hard; it was a hard-fought game. They battled to on their side and this is a huge two points.”

Quick on LA’s penalty kill – “We had a little bit of a stretch there were we weren’t happy with the PK. We had a string of five or six games where we let up a goal in each. It’s something that we’ve been great at the past couple of years and it’s something that we’ve really been putting a big focus on in these past few games because of that little stretch we went through. I feel like everybody’s mentality that they are going into the PK with is great.”

Moreau on the overall game – “I thought we were doing a really good job of keeping everybody involved and everyone was contributing and getting a lot of shots. Then Quickie [Jonathan Quick] took over when we needed him to.”

Moreau on the Kings shot totals tonight – “System mentality–I think you have to talk about it and we did before the game. I think it helped playing teams like Detroit and Chicago just seeing the success that they’ve had, San Jose as well, that they shoot the puck a lot. Even their star players, they just shoot the puck from all angles and I think we have to do more of that. I think the elite teams do that and we have to start to get more shots.”
