Quotes from Blackhawks locker room after def. Kings 2-1

With Chicago’s 2-1 win last night, that pushes their streak to seven straight over Los Angeles and 10-0-1 in the last 11 games vs. the Kings.

Following the game, here’s what was being said in the Blackhawks locker room…

Head coach Joel Quenneville on the overall game – “I think that the game that got us back on track was against San Jose, losing 1-0. We talked about being consistent with that kind of an effort and playing that type of style and game and we got rewarded the next two nights. It was a very competitive game tonight. Crawford made some big saves on a few bouncing pucks and we found a way to get through.”

Quenneville on scoring – “Scoring first certainly helped. I thought we had a good start to the game and they had some stretches there where they scored and we got a response to it later. I thought we responded to a poor start yesterday and getting the win is important.”

Chicago captain Jonathan Toews on the overall game – “It was probably in some ways our best game of the trip. We knew it was going to be a tight one. When you come on the road and you play a team like that, they use the home crowd and play with energy at home. We were smart, we didn’t have many chances against and they had some good penalty kills and chances on the power play. I think all around we played a good game. It’s fun to win those tight ones, especially at the end of this road trip.”

Toews on the team’s work ethic – “We know how good we can be if we go out there and work, but without our work ethic, without sticking to our game plan, there’s not much there. We know teams will raise their game against us and we got to be ready for that. There’s not going to be any easy ones for us out there, we just got to work for it.”

Chicago goalie Corey Crawford on the overall game – “I felt pretty good. I haven’t been getting the results I have wanted. I feel like I need to do a little bit more, but that was another good game for us. We played well; guys are coming back, breaking up plays, overall a good game. We just got to keep rolling here.”
