Jonathan Quick talks passing Kelly Hrudey on Kings’ playoff win list

Post-game quotes from goalie Jonathan Quick following the Kings 3-0 win over the visiting San Jose Sharks in Game 5 on Thursday night…

- On the overall game: “We played well. We played hard, came out with a purpose. It’s not easy. It’s not easy to win against this team, they’re a great team. We need that effort, we need more. We expect to win in San Jose. That’s a tough building to play in. We’re going to need a great effort again.”

- On moving past Kelly Hrudey in all-time playoff wins for the Kings: “What Kelly meant to this organization 20 years ago was pretty impressive. Everything he accomplished here and over the past few years. I’ve gotten a chance to know him and he’s a great guy, loves hockey. I remember watching him when I was growing up, he was very competitive and hated to lose obviously. Being able to pass him on that list it’s an accomplishment but wins are team accomplishments, so you got to give credit to the guys you play with. Very fortunate to be on a team with guys that care about winning so much. At the end of the day, it happened in the middle of a playoff run, so your focus is more on the next game than what we were able to accomplish today.”

- On playing a whole 60 minutes: “We played more of our game than I think we’ve seen. We saw it a bit in Game 4. We were down 2-0 and I think we did well. We came out with a purpose like I said. We limited their opportunities on their power play, which we obviously know is always dangerous for them.”

    Ever so humble, we all know that a good majority of his wins were Quick standing on his head while the rest of the team got it together. Quick is AWESOME!
