Post-Game 2: Jonathan Quick – ‘Gotta get back to zero and get ready’

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

- On his emotions right now:

“You’re excited, the game just ended. Kinda win in a dramatic fashion there, scoring two goals really late. So you enjoy it for a couple minutes, but then you gotta get back to zero and get ready. You gotta try to win game one all over again. And we’re going to be in their barn and it’s not an easy place to play. So we know we got our work cut out for us.”

- On seeing Anze Kopitar go down injured:

“It looked like it caught him pretty good. You’re just hoping that the damage is minimum. You’re hoping it’s not an eye or anything like that. He’s our best player so you don’t want him missing time. He came back out so looks like hopefully he will be good to play.”

- On if the Sharks’ giving up two goals in under a minute will be a blow to their psyche:

“They’ve got a lot of older guys, a lot of veterans. So, I don’t think that will affect them too much. They’re a resilient team so we gotta expect their best coming in two days here. We got our work cut out for us.”

- On watching his teammates tie and then get the go-ahead goal:

“They tie it, so you’re excited. Yeah, you’re excited. No matter what, whatever the score is, you’re always excited when guys score. You’re happy to see guys score. Also, in your head you still have a minute and a half that you have to keep them off the board.”
