Kyle Clifford on Justin Williams fighting, retaliation and fatigue

The Kings did not take to the ice today, coming off their 3-1 win in Game 3. However, several player were made available for questions. Here’s what Kyle Clifford had to share…

On last night’s win:

“I think we came out with a really good start and that’s what we wanted. The first two games in Chicago we didn’t necessarily do that. It kind of got the confidence going for us a little bit with a good start and we played pretty physical so it was a good thing for us.”

On Patrick Sharp wanting to fight Justin Williams:

“Willie’s pretty tough undercover, so I wouldn’t mind seeing that.”

On how to find resilience:

“We went through it last year so we know what to expect. Being mentally tough throughout our lineup, our whole team’s like that. We know we’re going to have bumps and bruises, and we’re just battling through it, focusing on winning games.”

On dealing with the players who hurt his teammates:

“I think, within the rules, we have to take care of those guys. We don’t want to be running around, looking around for situations that are going to get us penalties. Special teams are pretty big in the playoffs, so we have to be mentally tough and battle through it.”

On why Chicago plays so well:

“They don’t give you a lot of time or space. They get on you quick. They have guys that make sure pucks are cleared. I think we just have to get a little more traffic on Crawford and pucks to the net.”

On his fatigue level:

“I feel pretty good. It’s the start of July here, so we’ve been playing for quite some time. Our team’s conditioning is pretty good.” (MM: “It’s only June though Kyle.”) …”Whatever.”

On why the Kings are successful at home:

“I think we just come out and always have great starts, and it kind of gets us going early on and trickles throughout the game.”

On Jeff Carter’s condition:

“As far as I’m concerned, he’s good.”

On last night’s successful neutral zone play:

“I think we kind of frustrated their top players. Last night we did a good job, but we can still do a better job at it. They like that rush type game, so stay right in the neutral zone and make sure they don’t have too many chances, and make sure we’re getting pucks deep and not having too many turnovers in the neutral zone.”
