Quick likes when the Kings ‘smell a little blood in the water’

After recording his first shutout of the season, a 4-0 win over the visiting Phoenix Coyotes, here’s what Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick had to say back in the locker room…

– On if he felt locked in: “They’re a good team. They created a few chances early, and you just hope to make a few saves for the guys. You know we get one (goal) there, first, second, and then we were able to put it away there in the third. The guys played good.”

– On how the team killed the power plays: “It was great and we even created a couple of chances I think on the PK. That’s something that we did so well last year that we haven’t been as great this year at is our PK and I thought we did a great job of taking away their threats and not letting them get to make quality chances.”

– On Drew Doughty’s save during the 2nd period: “He’s done that a few times for me so he’s padded my stats a little bit. He’s been great, obviously he’s doing what he’s been doing since he came in this league and ever year he’s a little better than last year, so it’s great having him in front of me and when he plays as many minutes as he does and he’s played against top line every night—he does it well so it’s just another play he’s done that helped me out.”

– On the team gaining momentum as the game goes along: “I think it’s something that we kind of picked up there in the playoff run when guys kind of smell a little blood in the water. I think we do a good job of jumping on teams, and we were certainly able to do that tonight…When we get a couple (goals), and if teams feel a little down on their luck, or maybe feel a little sorry for themselves; the guys do a good job of jumping on and trying to get another one. So, at the end of the day, it’s just two points, and we see them again tomorrow. It’s 0-0 right now, and you just gotta get ready for tomorrow.”

– On Tyler Toffoli’s goal: “Well it’s a special moment for him. He’ll remember that forever. Obviously it’s the first of many. Like you said, he shoots the puck really well. He’ll score a few more of those.”

– On playing again in 24 hours: “That’s all it is, absolutely. As soon as you go back there, you’re eating and getting ready. It seems to be lately, just play one game, and then you get ready for the next one the next night or two nights later.”
