Post-Game 1 Comments from Tyler Toffoli

On the differences between St. Louis and San Jose:

“Oh, it’s just the next round.  It’s a lot harder and faster.  We came out, first game, we wanted to get the win, and that’s what we did.”

On if the Sharks were chirping him hard as the rookie out there:

“I don’t think they know who I am.  So I think they kind of laid off it.  So just went out there, and just played hard.”

On Jonathan Quick:

“Oh, he’s incredible.  He’s been amazing ever since I got here, and obviously last year.  Every year he’s been here.  He’s just a great goaltender and really keeps us in games.”

On what he needs to get into a game:

“You know what?  Just playing the game alone.  It’s an incredible feeling.  The fans are crazy.  My adrenaline’s been pumping all three games.”

On if the game started off slow physically:

“I think it maybe started off a little slow.  Lots of whistles.  Took a little while to get into it, but once it got going it was just like every other game.  Everybody played hard, and we came out with the big win.”

On forgetting about this win and focusing on Game 2:

“Absolutely.  Every game’s a new game.  We just gotta go out there the first shift and set the tone.  And come out with another win.”

On if being put out on the ice at the end of the game changes his role:

“No, I think they just want me to play my game.  Like I’ve said plenty of times, keep it simple.  Get pucks out, get pucks deep, and just keep working.”

On if there was a feeling of more space tonight versus the St. Louis series:

“It’s the playoffs.  It’s playoff hockey.  So everything’s tight, and everything’s hard.  You gotta win battles on the walls all over the place.  So it’s playoff hockey here.”

On how much notice he has that he’ll be playing:

“He’ll tell me the day of the game, but I’m just trying to be prepared to play or whatever he’s telling you to do.”

On if he is nervous sleeping the night before because he doesn’t know:

“Yeah, obviously you want to be playing, and you want to be in the line-up.  So just gotta be prepared, and just do the right things to stay ready.”

    Tyler is doing a great Job learning the system the Kings have. He is winning battles, making smart decisions with the puck and playing well in all three zones. Once he sees more ice time and time on the power play the goals will start pouring in. He’s the real deal.
