WCF Post-Game 2: Rob Scuderi on the loss of Mike Richards

Following the Kings 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 2, here’s what Rob Scuderi had to share…

On if the crowd at home will help the Kings:

“I think so. We’ve played well at home this year and we’re going to need a great start in Game 3.”

On when he found out Mike Richards was not going to play:

“I think it was pretty much right before the game time. He seemed pretty with it from what I could tell, but right before the game we put our line up on the board and he got taken out of it. He’s a big loss for us, he does a lot of things for us, does a lot of things very well. So it was a big loss. Hopefully we’ll get him back next game, but if not, we have to find a way.”

On if he was surprised that Mike Richards didn’t play:

“I guess it was 50/50, that’s pretty much what we felt like after last night when he took that hit. So, like I said you kinda hope for the best, especially with one of your key players. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case.”

On if Chicago’s team is tougher to play against than St. Louis:

“I think so, with the sustained pressure they’ve had on us and the way they’re able to generate turnovers and then capitalize on them is maybe more effective than St Louis. I think they have some different players that are more offensively dynamic. Not a total knock against St. Louis, that’s just the type of players that they have. Like I said, we have to find a way to stay in their zone a little more and take some pressure of ourselves.”

Post-game comments from the Blackhawks locker room, as well as Kings coach Darryl Sutter and forward Tyler Toffoli can all be found here.
