Quick – ‘You always have to be disciplined no matter what’

Goalie Jonathan Quick stopped 29 of the 32 shots he saw, giving up power play goals to Sami Salo and Andrew Ebbett, plus an even strength goal to Aaron Rome.

Immediately following the game, here’s what he had to say…

On the overall game – “You don’t want to get down one goal, two goals, it doesn’t matter. You always want to score the first goal and we were unable to do that tonight. The next 50 minutes we were trying to get out of the hole we dug ourselves in but came up a little short there. I thought we fought hard to get back into the game and we did, we made it a game. We had a couple chances at the end to tie it up. We just have to keep battling the way we did there in those last two periods and things will turn around.”

On the penalties – “A couple of those calls a few of us wouldn’t agree with but at the end of the day you always have to be disciplined no matter what. Even if you get a call you don’t think you deserved, it is what it is and you have to fight it off and you have to kill it off.”

On the physical part of the game – “It happens. It’s part of the game. It’s a physical game. Guys are trying to get to the net and create stuff in front of the net. It’s going to happen. You just deal with it, that’s it. It’s part of the game and you expect it to happen from time to time and it does.”
