Post-Game 7: Dustin Brown – ‘It’s always fun when you win, right?’

Comments from Kings captain Dustin Brown after LA defeated San Jose 2-1 and eliminated them in Game 7…

On if playing a Game 7 was fun:

“It was fun. I mean, it’s no difference once you get out there, once you get going it’s another game you’re just playing. I guess it’s always fun when you win, right?”

On the discussion in the locker room after the first period:

“Just sticking with our game plan. A few minor adjustment and x’s and o’s. But, I felt the game was there for us, it was just a matter of going out and grabbing it. I thought we did a good job of pressure, and getting them behind the eight ball. I mean we got two goals and I think we pushed it for the third and couldn’t get it beyond. (Antti) Niemi  made a really big save on his stick on the power play. Two was enough tonight.”

On being even keeled for 60 minutes:

“I don’t think it was as good as Game 5 but again it’s about finding a way to win tonight. We had four lines, our fourth line was really physically, banging their defense men. After the first I thought we got our game really going. In the third it’s about bending and not breaking and trying to put more pressure. We had some opportunities to get another goal in the third and just didn’t capitalize. Quickie obviously was Quickie.”

On Williams having five goals in four Game 7s:

“You’ll have to ask him. The last Game 7 I saw him play in he got to score a goal in the empty net so I don’t want to give him too much credit.”

On if battling back against St. Louis helped the Kings this round:

“I think it’s about experiencing adversity together. It wasn’t just the series against St. Louis. It was losing to Vancouver together, losing in San Jose two years  ago together. It was our whole year last year until the playoffs. When you experience when your down in the trenches together and you find a way to battle out it always adds to the chemistry which is probably the hardest thing to find at this level.”

On if Jonathan Quick’s play surprises him anymore:

“He doesn’t surprise me. I mean, he never surprises me. I guess he surprised you guys because everyone throughout the whole media was wondering what was wrong with him all year long, because he wasn’t playing at… the best I’ve ever seen him last year as a goal tender and he’s starting to perform again at the right time this year. Within the room we’ve always known he’s been our  backbone, even this year he was struggling a little bit but he battles for us. When it comes to the saves he makes, that doesn’t surprise me.”
