Post-game 7: Rob Scuderi talks up Jonathan Quick

Post-game quotes from Kings defenseman rob Scuderi…

On when the desperation kicked in:

“I think with us, in a Game 7, there’s always a feeling out period. Both teams are nervous that their season is going to end. No one wants to make a big mistake early. I think the first five to ten minutes was a feeling out period. And then they started to take it to us towards the tail end of the first and we responded with a big first half of the second period and I thought that’s what we needed to get our confidence and our legs under us.”

On if the adversity of the series helped the Kings:

“I don’t think it’s a bad thing considering the series that we went through last year and having a 3-0 series lead every time, going down 2-0 and coming back strong with four straight is not the easiest thing to do in this league. Like I said, given what happened last year, we had to battle for this one, too. It was up and down the entire series, back and forth, and home ice advantage playing out the way it did… sometimes you have to find different ways to win and I’m proud that we did that.”

On where this elimination game ranks versus previous years:

“It’s great. Anytime you’re in a Game 7 situation  you know, if you’re any type of competitor you want to play in those high pressure situations and you want to be counted on every time you hop over the boards and I think we have that mentality throughout this dressing room. It’s always satisfying when you play as a group, you play the right way, and you’re rewarded at the end.”

On if Jonathan Quick amazes him anymore:

“It’s kind of scary, to be honest. We had that break down on that face off, late, and we had a couple guys go off to block the shot, someone fell down… I know I went out to block the shot and then of course the rebound goes right to (Joe) Pavelski and you’re trying your hardest to get back, but you’re thinking the worst. And he just comes out with the save and you’re just like, jeez, thank God that guys in net. He gives us such confidence and it radiates throughout the locker room and it’s something we’re very grateful to have.”
