Quotes from Sharks locker room after 2-0 loss to LA

Late last night we heard from the Kings and Sharks’ head coaches (linked here), as well as comments from LA’s locker room (link).

Now, we go across the aisle to see what some of the Sharks players were saying after their 2-0 loss to the Kings.

Sharks captain Joe Thornton on the overall game – “Good third period, bad first two. We just have got to somehow score to make it a game and we didn’t…You knew they were going to play well at home here. I’m disappointed at the way we came out, but I’m sure we’ll get a couple good days of practice and get back at it on Thursday.”

Thornton on Kings’ goalie Jonathan Quick – “He played good. He’s a good goaltender, he’s a league goaltender. We had our chance but we just didn’t finish. He played well.”

Sharks’ defenseman Dan Boyle on the overall game – “The first two periods there was not a lot of emotion. We didn’t really work to get our chances. Five-on-five we had nothing for the first two periods. Not working hard enough to win the game. There are 82 games. You have got to find a way to get up for every game. Some nights are tougher than others, but at the end of the day you have to find a way. As a team you have got to get up for it. There’s no reason why. These guys are in our division.”
