Post-Game 3 – Tyler Toffoli talks Kings 3-1 win


Comments from Tyler Toffoli after the Kings 3-1 win over the Blackhawks in Game 3…

On if the team feels more confident:

“I just think it’s another game. Playing in front of the crowd we had tonight, it was so loud. From the start of the game, the fans were crazy and I think that definitely helped our team out.”

On if he feels more confident:

“Yeah, it’s good. I feel good. When a team’s winning, it doesn’t matter how you play, as long as the teams winning. I think we pulled out a good game tonight and we shut them down.”

On playing on a line with Jeff Carter and Dustin Penner:

“They’re great. They’re great line mates and great players. After every shift they talk to me. We talk and we have good chemistry going right now.”

On what his line mates tell him:

“Just to keep it simple, I mean, their D are pinching a lot and just to get pucks out and try to get some scoring chances down low in their zone.”

On Jeff Carter replacing Mike Richards at center:

“The last two games he’s been playing incredible. You can see how good of a skater he is and how good of a vision he has. I’m just lucky to be playing with him right now and I’m just trying to help him out.”

On the physicality tonight:

“I think it’s another game. It’s playoff hockey. It’s no real surprise.”

On Slava Voynov’s goal:

“Yeah, I mean obviously that’s a good break. I think there was a couple guys in front and Crawford didn’t see it. Any goal is a good goal in the playoffs here.”

On Justin William’s play:

“He’s been incredible for us all playoffs long. Whenever we need a big goal he’s always there to step up. You can’t say enough great things about the way he’s playing right now and how good of a leader he is.”

On if Darryl Sutter talks to him:

“I think the more he’s not really talking to you, I think you’re fine. If I’m playing, I’m playing a lot of minutes. That speaks big volumes. You have to keep it simple with the way you’re playing. It’s playoff hockey. Like I’ve said before, anyone would kill to be in the position I’m in. Whenever I’m told to go out there and play, I’m just going.”

On his energy level:

“It’s incredible. It’s playoff hockey, it’s the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It’s incredible. I think every night my adrenaline gets higher and higher. It’s been an incredible experience.”

On what he’s learning about NHL goalies:

“They’re so quick, they make huge saves and never give up on the puck. I think you have to have a lot of traffic in front of the goalies, especially Crawford (Corey Crawford), he’s a really good goalie. You just got to keep putting pucks on the net.”

On the Kings’ biggest difference tonight:

“Just playing harder, getting pucks deep. Just finishing our checks. I think we had a good game, we were physical all night long. We just have to keep doing that.”

On if he can take anything away from this home game and apply it on the road:

“Yeah, you know, I just think we’re looking to go into Game 4 right now and just play the same way we did tonight. And we’ll think about the next game after that.”

On if playing with Dwight King and Slava Voynov brings comfort:

“Yeah, like I said, with Carts and Pens, we’re always talking. Everybody in the room is so good communicating with each other and it’s been good. It’s been an easy…not easy, but it’s definitely helped my transition here and it’s been a lot of fun.”

On if starting the game fast-paced builds confidence:

“Yeah, playing at home I think you want to come out hard and get lots of shots. I mean, when you score a goal early that definitely helps, playing with the lead. I think that was our goal, and we did it, and we just have to carry that on to Game 4.”
