WCF Post-Game 1: Flash quotes from Kings locker room

Comments from the Kings’ locker room following their 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final…

Matt Greene on the loss:

“You play to win every game. So, that’s it. Especially being up by one, we didn’t have our best game and we have to be better tomorrow.”

Greene on the quick turnaround, with another game tomorrow:

“Nothing. It’s the playoffs. Get your legs going and get ready to go.”

Greene on if the Kings have lost confidence on the road:

“No.”

Greene on the feeling of leading after one period despite being outshot by a wide margin:

“It was good. We salvaged something out of that (first) period. That was it, about all you could. But like I said, we just have to regroup for tomorrow.”

Colin Fraser on the Kings lack of road success this season:

“It does a surprise me, considering what we did last year. I don’t really know what the answer is, but we definitely have to be better for sure. It shouldn’t matter where we’re playing. They got the better of us tonight. Obviously we came out probably a little bit flat and they were throwing lots of pucks on net. I think we turned too many pucks over. I think we have to get back to maybe a simpler game, try to take their speed away from them with that. If we start doing that, we’re going to get more chances in the offensive zone and hopefully score more goals.”

Fraser on the overall game:

“All of our games seem to be a tight games and there’s a fine line in all of them. We simply have to be better. We need to find a way to get on the other side of that line.”

Fraser on if he saw the hit on Mike Richards:

“I was on the bench, couldn’t really see it. The net was even in the way…Mike’s a tough guy though.”

Fraser on the feeling of leading after one period despite being outshot by a wide margin:

“You don’t want to give up that many shots. Obviously, it’s far too many. It’s no secret what other team’s game plans are when Quick is in net. They’re going to have to shoot at everything…On the flip side, if we start playing our game, chipping in pucks more and playing it a little more simple, we’ll be in the O-zone more and not on our heels and not giving up so many shots.”
