Post-Game 2: Trevor Lewis – ‘I almost passed out in the celebration’

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

– On being able to step back and consider the moment based on how this game ended:

“I just think our power play was big tonight and special teams we need. Special teams you need in the playoffs, and the power play was great. But we know we didn’t play our best hockey and we have to refocus here and we know they are good in their building so we gotta come out and be a lot stronger than we have been.”

– On skating with Brad Richardson and what he provided:

“A lot of energy and makes great plays. I mean, that pass he made to Doughty for that goal is unbelievable. Yeah, he was great. Strong; kind of a little pest to play against, he brought a lot of energy for us.”

– On Tyler Toffoli’s game:

“He was great tonight. He was a big player for us. One of our best players tonight. Twenty years old, that’s pretty good.”

– On Colin Fraser owing him dinner if he scored tonight:

“I think that was Toff’s play there. He made a great shot off the pad there and I just kinda tapped it in and then almost passed out in the celebration.”

– On making adjustments to playing without Stoll on his line:

“I’ve played with Stolly for awhile now, we’re always talking and we’re kinda good together when we’re both on the same page. So, it’s different playing without him. But I’ve played with Richie (Richardson) a lot. Richie’s great. Great job out there; provided a lot of energy, and made an unbelievable pass to Doughty there. He was good.”

– On if Richardson was indeed a prick to play against tonight:

“Yeah he definitely was, a little pest out there. Turning pucks over, and getting under guys’ skin. He was great for us.”

  1. I thought I remembered someone saying that Toff’s weakness was his skating… because he just looked great right there.
