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.”
