Justin Williams – ‘We stuck up for each other, that’s what we do.’

Williams Kings at Blues MayorsManor
Following the Kings 4-2 win in St. Louis, here’s what Justin Williams – who scored an empty net goal to seal the win – had to share…

– On taking the hit after the empty-netter: “Yeah, anything to score a goal any day. Certainly wanted to seal the game, but Brownie and I both had a chance to finish it off a little bit earlier. But, it’s funny now that it went in the net eventually.”

– On the feeling on the bench after the goal: “Well, I haven’t scored that many this year. I know the boys wanted me to get an empty-netter. So I was trying my best to get it. Obviously seal the game first, and if I get the opportunity, put one in the empty net.”

– On how he views the hit after: “Well, take a hit to make a play. It looks like a clean hit, and I told Kopi, ‘No big deal.’ He wanted to get in there and muck it up a little bit. We stuck up for each other, that’s what we do.”

– On what he finds most impressive about the win: “Well I thought we certainly played a strong road game. I think our power play needs to be a little bit better. We didn’t get as much momentum as we should’ve off the power play – even if we didn’t score. And we allowed a penalty kill goal. But, all-in-all, our 5-on-5 game was pretty good. We got a great goal by Mike Richards there at the end, battling for the puck. We greased one out tonight.”

– On what he thinks about the Minnesota game on Saturday: “I think they’re close to seven in a row, and we haven’t seen them yet. They’ve got a new look team. We’ll certainly be ready. Our road record’s not as great as we’d like, and we need to keep pushing forward for it.”
