Exclusive thoughts from Jon Quick after shootout win over Avs

Quick Kings v Avs April 11-2013
Following the Kings 3-2 shootout win over the visiting Colorado Avalanche, here’s what Jonathan Quick shared exclusively with MayorsManor…

– On the overall game: “60 minutes. Played good, played bad; played good again. We got two points. That’s all that matters this time of year. Just two points closer to a playoff spot. So you know, we’re gonna work on things we did wrong, and reinforce things that we did right, and get ready for the next one.”

– On if Colorado’s speed caused problems for them: “Yeah, they’re a fast team. That speed will cause problems for any team. They have a lot of talent, if you look at their top three guys down the middle there. They’d be in the playoff picture, I believe, if all three of them were there for the whole season, you know? That’s the way it goes though.”

– On if he feels for goalies at the other end of the ice making their NHL debut: “You’re just trying to get two points, you know? Not really trying to feel for him. Trying to beat him.”

Bonus quotes from Anze Kopitar…

– Kopitar on what he thought about the shootout: “Since I went third you kind of get the read on the goalie and I played against Giguere enough years now where I guess I got to know him.  I guess he got to know me too.  I just went in there, he kind of gave me the low blocker and I figured I’d come fake him and it worked.”

– Kopitar on how he would describe the three periods of play: “The first one was good, we came out strong, out shot them in the first by quite a bit and sat back a little bit, which it’s not the best thing to do obviously and they came back.  But at the end of the day, we got the two points and that’s the most important thing for us.
