Quick on the waived off goal and Jeff Carter scoring

Quick vs Flames Kings MayorsManorAfter the Kings 6-2 win over the visiting Calgary Flames, goaltender Jonathan Quick shared the following thoughts…

- On the Flames’ goal that was waived off: “He just skated right into me. So I assumed it was. I think it was the right call. I don’t know. Maybe it wasn’t. Who knows? I thought it was.”

- On what was said in the locker room during the first intermission: “Yeah, we just needed to be better. There was a lot of little things we needed to correct and get better at. I think we did it well over the last 40 minutes.”

- On there being consistency on interference calls: “It’s very hard. I’ll tell you, they do a good job of trying to keep it as consistent as possible. It’s very hard, because a lot of it’s – you’re watching the puck, you’re watching the play, guy bumps a goalie. It’s kind of a gray area. It’s a tough call to make because no matter what, especially on a goal, you know somebody’s going to be mad. If they make the call (interference) or they don’t, somebody isn’t happy. It’s a tough call to make. I thought he got it right there. I’m sure if you go to their locker room, they’ll say he got it wrong. That’s how it works.”

- On if they do a good job of explaining calls: “If I ask, even if we don’t sometimes, if they know it’s a call that could’ve gone either way, they’ll come over and explain why or why not. I’ve had times where I’ve got bumped, the puck doesn’t go in, it goes in the corner, we go down the ice, there’s a whistle – one of the refs will come down and say, ‘I would have waived that off. That wouldn’t have been a goal if it went in.’ Sometimes they do. Sometimes I’m sure like they feel they don’t need to. It is good to have that communication, so you know what to expect.”

- On if it’s gotten to the point that he expects Carter to score every game: “I think it is with the fans. It’s kind of funny, anytime he has the puck he shoots. It doesn’t matter where he shoots it from. It could be from the neutral zone, and I think the fans expect it to go in. He’s playing great hockey for us. He’s scoring big goals. He’s one of the leaders on our team. We need him to do that. He’s one of the biggest reasons why we are where we are in the standings right now.”

On Carter’s strengths: “He’s a big, strong guy. He skates really well. Power forward. Obviously he shoots the puck as good as anyone I’ve ever seen.”
