Quotes from Vancouver locker room after 3-2 win over LA

The Vancouver Canucks defeated the LA Kings 3-2 in front of a sellout crowd at Staples Center.

Here are some quotes from the visiting team locker room following the game…

COACH ALAIN VIGNEAULT:

On the overall game – “Tonight, the way the game unfolded with us getting an early five-minute power play and then following it up with an undisciplined penalty on Ryan Kesler we were able to make them pay. Getting off to a real good start, we had some real good chances and had some real solid chances in the second. Their goalie made some saves and made for an interesting last minute.”

On the power play – “For us, our Ds have always been a big part of our attack whether it be 5-on-5 or 5-on-4. The importance of them jumping up in the play and they have an opportunity to get their shot through that’s very important. Tonight our guys played a solid game against a very good hockey team.”

DEFENSEMAN AARON ROME:

On having goals in back-to-back games – “It was nice. It was early in the game so we didn’t really expect that. It is just nice to get a win. We played well in the first period. We capitalized on the chances we had and it’s good to get a win.”

On the power play – “It’s been good. It’s been clicking and we’ve talked about making the other team pay when they take penalties so it has been huge for us.”

FORWARD ANDREW EBBETT:

On his first goal as a Canuck – “Yeah, I’ll definitely take it. It’s a chance to get an opportunity on the PP and I got a lucky bounce. I was looking for [David] Booth in the crease and got it off their guy’s skate. I’ll take it.”

On playing on the power play – “It’s nice when you can get that chance to go out there. I wasn’t really expecting it and when you go out there and you take advantage of your opportunities when you get them.”
