Post-Game 6: Mike Richards – ‘To have it come down to one game is exciting’

Following the Kings 2-1 loss in Game 6, here’s what Mike Richards had to share…

On the overall game:

Richards: “We probably didn’t have our best game tonight. It seemed like we had a tough time getting it together and getting sustained pressure. I’ll give them credit, they played well and kept us on the outside for most of the night. It’s disappointing but at the same time it’s one of those games that you have to put behind you and move on and get right back at it on Tuesday. It’s a pretty good series. One game decides it.”

Question: Home ice could make the difference?

Richards: “Yeah, hopefully. That’s why you play the whole year. We’re obviously comfortable there with our record and to have it come down to one game is exciting. Obviously we would have rather had it tonight but it’s going to be a good game on Tuesday and who ever plays their best the longest is going to win.”

Question: The 5-on-3 obviously the big difference in this game?

Richards: “Yeah their power play in this building is good to say the least but I took a penalty there and Kopi [Anze Kopitar] had an unlucky one there, bad break, and plays that shouldn’t have happened. But like I’ve said, whatever’s happened, happened in this series and it’s come down to one game in this series. We have to get excited and ready for the next one.”

    Mike Richards – ‘To have it come down to one game is exciting’ – I love Richards but I just want to punch him in the back of the head after reading this. Okay, maybe I would just Flick his forehead. I get it though, they have to let it go and move on… It’s more productive to see your adrenaline as ‘Excitement’ rather than ‘Panic’. My ‘Excitement’ for Game 7 will probably kick in after they announce the Kings are going to Round 3. 🙂
