More post-game quotes following the Kings 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks. Goaltender Jonathan Quick, who made 21 saves in the game and stopped all three players in the shootout, had this to say…
– On the overall game: “We won and I think we deserved it too. I thought the majority of the game we spent it in their end. They catch a bounce in the first and a bad one in the second, and you know now we’re chasing. Thought the guys did a really great job. Got a good power play goal – we needed that, that was huge. You know, the last one we scored with an empty net, that was exciting.”
– On Alex Burrows’ spin-o-rama in the shootout: “I don’t know (if it would have counted). It probably would have went to a review and who knows. I don’t know. It was creative, I suppose. I surely have never seen that before. But I don’t know if it would have counted or not.”
– On going from trailing late in the game to leaving with two points: “It was a great effort. We had guys taking away Luongo’s eyes and Slava puts it in a good spot. Pushing it to overtime, to get that point was huge. And to get into the shootout and be able to pull another point out of it was even bigger. It’s a playoff race right now, and every point is huge.”
