Comments from Sharks’ locker room after 4-3 loss to LA in Game 2

Comments from the San Jose Sharks’ locker room after their come-from-ahead loss to the Kings in Game 2…

– Coach Todd McLellan on the overall game: “I liked our game. We’ll meet tomorrow at the rink and I’ll tell our team that. The thing I like about our team, maybe in the past this would have bothered our team more, but with the group of guys we have I think we can recover from this. I think we can get out and play hard again; we’ll take our chances just like we did tonight. There are a few areas we need to clean up but guys played their hearts out. But again, like I said after Game One, that doesn’t get you wins in the playoffs, scoring more than the other team does and we’re going to have to do that.”

– McLellan on what he tells his team: “I left them alone now, they’re tired of hearing from me. But tomorrow when we meet I’ll tell them the good things we did. We will talk about some of the adjustments we made and how it helped us. We’ll talk about things we need to clean up a little bit and the most important thing is they’ll know we believe in them. It was a hell of an effort tonight.”

– Captain Joe Thornton how tough it will be to get over the loss: “Ten minutes. We played well. We just didn’t win. We thought we deserved a better fate but that’s playoff hockey. They did their job. They got two at home. Now we have to go home and do our job. You get in penalty trouble later on, it happens, but now we have to get the job done at home. (on power play getting closer). Marleau’s goal was pretty much a power play. It’s getting close. We have to keep banging away, keep shooting; that’s pretty much all you can do.”

– Joe Pavelski on breaking through against Quick and tough loss: “It’s a tough loss regardless; we know we can break through. We have done it before. We know we’re going to get our chances and we did and we could have had another one. It was just a tough way to lose it. We have to get rid of it quick and take a lot of good things out of it. We played them hard and we felt like we carried the pace for most of it. They are a good team, obviously, they found a way tonight. It’s tough to lose on a 5-on-3 so late and then give up another one quick. Take it in and move on. It will be nice to go home.”
