Dustin Penner post game quotes – Game 4 vs Blues

Following the Kings 4-3 win over the visiting St. Louis Blues in Game 4, here’s what Dustin Penner had to share…

On how it felt to score:

“Yeah, it always feels nice to score.  It had been awhile.”

On if scoring a goal makes him feel better physically and mentally:

“Yeah, you get rid of a lot of lactic acid build up after you score a goal.  It’s weird how it works that way.”

On if being a tight-knit group has made it easier to stay calm and come back in the series:

“Yeah it hasn’t been easy, the Blues have definitely made it tough on us and we made it tough on ourselves but to breakthrough close to tough times, you feel each game is a season, there’s ebbs and flows to each game and we’ve been able to win two at home court so to speak.”

On what was said during the second intermission:

“Just win one period. We had tied one, lost one. If we could just win this period–small goals for ourselves —that would lead into a big one. And get pucks to the net, get inside their D and create havoc for Elliott.”

On what it says coming back from two-nothing in the series:

“There’s a lot of resilience in this room, the game has a funny way, making you question it, but we have a lot of resolve. Obviously we draw on experiences from last year. As individuals from different years that we played, just that’s what makes us professional athletes and the competitors we are.”

On hoping for a quick start tonight:

“You can never predict how a game’s going to go, you can only predict the work ethic you bring. We had maybe an unfortunate bounce for the first goal and a power-play goal. The game tests you in different ways. We definitely earned this one.”
