Post-Game 6: Rob Scuderi – ‘I’m not going to say we played great, but…’

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

Question: All the talk coming into tonight’s game was about you guys getting off to a faster start. Did you feel that you did that tonight?

Scuderi: “I’m not going to say we played great, but I thought we had a better start than we have been having in this building. Certainly giving them a 5-on-3 in the first five minutes of the game isn’t going to help.”

Question: What about the goal by [Dustin] Brown? At that point did you feel that momentum was swinging back your way?

Scuderi: “Yeah, you just kind of follow the trend of every game here. Maybe we haven’t started the best but as the game’s gone on we get stronger and stronger. Certainly it’s nice to get that one toward the tail end of the second period but we just couldn’t bury another one.”

Question: No shock that your’e playing a game 7 against this team, being that you’re so closely matched?

Scuderi: “Every game’s been close. Every game’s been, besides the game last night, has been closely decided and closely contested. It’s not a shock it’s come to seven. I’m sure both teams didn’t want it to come to this point but here we are, we just gotta win one.”

Question: Are there any plays that stood out to you in this one that made the difference?

Suderi: “I think the one that really sticks out is the 5-on-3 in the first few minutes of the game. It’s certainly was not a penalty that Kopi [Anze Kopitar] was meaning to take, it happens. The pucks rolling and you’re just trying to slap it down the ice. It happens but we’re trying to limit their start in this building that they play so well in. Getting the fans into it right away with the quick goal certainly doesn’t help. But we were able to play well and make our own storm if you will, gotta try to get something going. Just couldn’t get two.”

Question: Anything that needs to be said for game 7?

Scuderi: “Just win the next one. It doesn’t matter how you win, you just gotta win 4 games. It’s right in front of us, just gotta do it.”
