Brown, Regehr, Scuderi talk Kings 3-1 win over Chicago in Game 3

Quick comments from the LA Kings locker room following their 3-1 win over the Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final…

Dustin Brown on physical play: “We had guys, every line physical, finishing checks, we got some hits on their key guys, which we didn’t get a lot of in previous games. It’s not one or two guys, it’s guys on every line, every D pair. It’s a matter of understanding why that makes us successful and repeating it.”

Brown on Matt Greene: “He’s a big part of our physical presence in front of the net especially. He’s one of those big strong guys…And they have guys that are willing to go those areas and if they’re going to go we got to make it hard for them and make them second guess themselves. It’s not going to happen in one shift or one game, it’s going to be over the course of the series.”

Brown on the overall game: “We’re finding ways to win by only scoring a couple of goals and a big part of that obviously is Quick. I didn’t think we gave up a whole lot of chances, he made one save in the third late on a rebound that saved the game for us. Those are the types of chances we can’t give up.”

Robyn Regehr on the Kings’ team attitude: “We don’t seem to ride an emotional rollercoaster here which is nice, you have to do that, because there’s always going to be ups and downs throughout the year, there’s always going to be ups and downs in individual series and even when you look at it, in a game, sometimes it can really swing back and forth and you have to deal with those the right way or you can get too high and too low and you don’t want that.”

Regehr on LA’s response to Chicago scoring: “It was great to see, it’s always really tough giving up a goal, especially in the last minute of a period, and what we did, we talked about it in here, coming out in the third period and just doing a lot more of the steps that had been happening for the first two periods. I thought we played a pretty solid game and did a much better job of executing and that’s part of it, things aren’t always going to go your way out there and you have to bounce back, and that’s what we did. I thought we played a pretty solid third period.”

Rob Scuderi on the Kings’ play tonight:

“I’d certainly say it was our strongest 60 of the series so far. I don’t think that would surprise anybody. We were able to cut the series in half and now we’re trying to even it.”

Scuderi on playing a full 60 minutes:

“We didn’t want to sit back. Everyone can fall into the trap once you have a lead, especially in the third period, of sitting back. With the players that they have, it’s not going to be a winning strategy. I think we w’ere able to play in their zone, at least it was a 50/50, maybe, I don’t have the exact statistics. At least we we’re able to play some time in their end and not overwork our team defense just playing in our end.”

Scuderi on if home ice is a factor in winning:

“I think it’s a huge factor. We’re comfortable here, we play well here. It’d be nice if we could find a way to take that with us on the road. But like I said, we’re just focused on tonight. Glad it was a win and have to get another one on Thursday.”

Scuderi on Justin Williams’ play:

“We needed this game, we needed this game bad. I think everyone knows the percentages of trying to win a series once you’re down 3-0. We needed this one. He comes to play at the big time games.”

Scuderi on Slava Voynov’s goal:

“It happens sometimes. If you work hard enough, it’s amazing how much good luck you might get. I felt we worked hard that shift, we had a couple chances, couple good looks, and then we ended up getting a broken stick goal of all the shots we took. Sometimes it happens.”
