Jordan Nolan not blaming Quick for Kings’ loss in Dallas

Following the Kings 5-1 loss in Dallas on Tuesday, here’s what forward Jordan Nolan had to share on Kings Live…

– On the overall game: “We came out okay to start the game. An okay first, and okay second. And in third they were a lot hungrier than us. They were just more determined, and we got away from our game.”

– On the turnovers and chasing pucks: “I don’t know. Sloppy third period. Sloppy second. And we were just trying to score goals any way possible. We were stretching, we weren’t doing things we usually do. So that’s gonna hurt us.”

– On not blaming Jonathan Quick for the loss: “No, Quickie’s been pretty good lately. He’s always gonna have our backs, and like you said, we turned pucks over. We got away from our game. And you know if you give that to a skill team like Dallas, they’re gonna get goals.”

– On bouncing back: “Yeah, there’s lots of games, and you know, there’s only a few left here. So we just gotta look beyond this and get some wins.”

We should have some more locker room quotes posted shortly.

  1. Even with the 5 goals, Quick was still good. But this team won’t survive playoffs if they show up like they did tonight. We need the team that easily beat the Oilers to show up again. Haven’t seen them around since that game. But that’s what usually happens with the Kings.

    They drop a couple of games, then they bounce right back.

  2. JOCELYN Z says:

    I am not blaming Quick at all! Personally, I want to go through my tv screen – lift his confidence, so he can get that swagger back…in time for post season! HE NEEDS TO LOOK STRONG, BIG AND CONFIDENT! THE TEAM IMPLODED TONIGHT…DON’T KNOW WHY BUT IT HAPPENED.

    Now someone in that locker-room needs to stand up and be the LEADER…..speak……and get this team to play for each other again. They need to figure out what it is they are playing for..fast.. I think with the abbreviated season and having them play every other day etc….you get “lost in the motions”… I’m not sure if that “hunger” we saw last year is all there,and we all know that it is going to get even more difficult to win it all again!

    But I have faith in them; I still believe they can do it. I sincerely hope this is that low point that turns the tide to more glorious days ahead.

  3. The Kings look totally unenthusiastic on the road this year. They play for ten minutes, and then they get this “why are we here” attitude and then the other team just pounces. Hopefully getting their ass kicked in the 3rd period last night will shake some people up. They seem to think that as long as they make the playoffs they will just be able to ride talent or roll again. They are in for a rude awakening because unlike last season, this year everyone is going to see them coming because they’re the champs.

  4. Also, for whatever reason, the team seems to be playing much better in front of Bernier this season than in front of Quick. I’m not saying anyone’s lost confidence in Quick, but it’s uncanny how much better they have played in front of Jon Bernier.
