Justin Williams post game quotes – Game 4 vs Blues

Following the Kings 4-3 win over the visiting St. Louis Blues in Game 4, here’s what Justin Williams had to share…

On the overall game:

“That’s playoffs, right?  All the way.  I mean that’s playoffs.  That’s battling all the way to the final buzzer.  Whether it takes 60 minutes, whether it takes 80 minutes, or however long it takes.  We needed a big third period, we needed a response.  They had a couple leads in the game, and we were able to fight them off, but now’s not the time to let off the accelerator.  Now’s the time to keep pushing.”

On if there was a concern that the game-winner wouldn’t count:

“No, not at all.  I was in front of the net.  I felt was much below my shoulders, and at the same time it was called a goal on the ice.  So at that point it’s really hard to overturn something.  So I was certainly confident it was in, yeah.”

On what was said during the second intermission:

“Not much needs to be said.  We’re an experienced team.  We’ve been through a lot.  We knew we needed a response.  We were down a goal.  You know, facing a daunting task of going back to St. Louis down three-one, but we found it within ourselves, got a couple big goals, and resulted in a big win.”

On if being a tight-knit group that stays calm has helped them fight back:

“There’s a lot of things that have helped us.  But certainly being through it before last year, having experience, and having experience with the same group in here in pressure situations, lets us know that we can do it.”

On how nice it was to see Kopitar getting a goal:

“Certainly.  It’s funny, once you score a goal your legs feel better, your heart feels better, the blood is flowing and your body feels better – and you get a little more confidence with the puck. That’s certainly what we need from Anze.”

On if Sutter opened up the offense to get more odd-man rushes:

“First period, I’m sure both teams would like a lot of plays back.  There’s not changing much.  There’s just a different element to every game.  Not every game’s going to be one-nothing.  Not every game’s going to be two-one.  Even with these two teams.  So I really enjoyed watching us come back when we got down early, and our response in the third was awesome.”
