Post-Game 2: Comments from Kings rookie Tyler Toffoli

Following the Kings’ come-from-behind win over the visiting San Jose Sharks in Game 2, here’s what rookie Tyler Toffoli had to share…

– On setting up Trevor Lewis for the game-winning goal:

“It was huge, I just want to continue, working hard, getting pucks to the net and creating chances. We got a good bounce there and we put it in.”

– On getting more ice time and feeling more comfortable overall:

“I don’t think it matters how much ice time I’m getting, it’s just helping the team in whatever role I’m being put in, tonight I got a lot of minutes, a lot more than I’m used to so I just kind of tried to take it all in and play the best I could.”

– On if he noticed any difference playing with Anze Kopitar late in the game, compared to Colin Fraser earlier:

“Absolutely, I mean everybody has their strengths and obvious Fraz is a hard worker so, and Kopi’s obviously an incredible player and it’s an honor to be on the ice with him. I was just going out there and working the hardest I could, like I said just trying to get a lot of chances.”

– On what coach Darryl Sutter said to the team when they were trailing by a goal:

“He didn’t say anything, we knew what we had to do and we did it.”

– On any differences he noticed between the play of the Sharks in Games 1 and 2:

“I don’t really think it was much different, their D were really on us but other than that, it was the same team and they were getting lots of shots, getting the puck to the net. We just wanted to go and try to stop that a little bit and create our own chances.”

– On the keys to being so hot at home, now winners of 12 straight games at Staples Center:

“I’m sure you guys heard the building, how loud it was. It’s huge having the fans that we have and when we get going the fans know it and they have our backs.”
