Post-game quotes from Pittsburgh Penguins locker room

It was a close one. But, in the end, the Kings lost 3-2 in a shootout.

Here are some quotes from the Penguins locker room following the game…

Pittsburgh coach Dan Blysma – “Tonight was an entertaining game. We kind of allowed them an opportunity to get in the game at that point with a 1-1 tie. It was certainly entertaining at that point. And then we had a huge effort at the end there at the last five minutes.”

Blysma on Chris Kunitz’s shootout goal – “He’s done that move quite a bit. It’s his go-to and it seems to get goalies to open up and he scored and had success there. I don’t know if Quick remembered that one.”

Kunitz on the game tying goal – “Really good fore-check by Duper [Pascal Dupuis], he kind of jumped the guy and the puck, I think the people lost it, it was kind of up in the glass. He took it behind to make the play out to [Jordan Staal] coming out to the net and hit his skate, then he made a pass back and I just took it around the net and put it in.”

Kunitz on the overall game – “I think this one is a little more satisfying just after our let down in San Jose. You know, to let them come back in a game that we thought maybe we started really good and didn’t finish that way. So tonight to be able to do that to someone else gives it a little more satisfaction.”

Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury on the game – “It was a tight game from start to finish, but it was nice to finally get those two points at the end. I think that power play gave them some momentum with coming a little more to the net and having more shots. But once again, I think our D did a good job out in front helping me out a lot and getting the puck out of the zone.”
