WCF Wednesday June 5 – Matt Greene comments

On upset about Jeff Carter being hit by Duncan Keith:

Yeah, but you can’t dwell on it. We’re here to win games, not worry about what happened in the past or what got called. That’s it, our focus has to be going into Game 4.”

On what the referee told him following the hit:

“He said that it’s a judgement call whether it’s intent to injure, and he didn’t think it was. So it’s a four minute penalty, and that’s it.”

On retaliating:

“No, you’re upset obviously, but I think, you know, you have to play within the rules. You have to play a hard game. Our whole mentality is to play a physical, grindingWCF We game, and to be hard on their skill guys. That’s our game plan, everyone knows that. You have to do with within the rules, and if you’re going to let that get to your head or try to answer back with something that’s illegal, then you’re going to hurt your team. So you can’t do that, you just have to be worried about playing our game and doing what we can to get wins here.”

On playing so well at home:

“You have to play well at home, you have to come out in front of your plans and put on a good show. Obviously you want to carry that over to the road, though. We want to get a big start here coming tomorrow night and we also have to keep continuing that. Like I said their a good team, so it’s just about keeping pace in the series right now.”

On how last year’s playoffs help this year:

“Experience helps, you know. A lot of guys have been in the Western Conference finals before, pretty much our whole team has. Now it’s just the time to deliver on that, use our experience to help us out.”

On changing his game depending on if he is paired with Jake Muzzin or Alec Martinez:

“Not too much, both those guys are really good players. Both of them are really good puck movers, so it’s pretty much just playing the same way. I think I’ve played with them both enough now that it’s a pretty easy transition.”

On Tyler Toffoli’s impact:

“Just his ability to get pucks to the net. There’s a lot of guys, you see them when they come up, the puck find them or they have a great way of getting the puck back to them. I think he’s a guy who does that really well. That’s something that’s definitely a skill that not a lot of guys have, to be able to find the puck, get a handle on it, and get a good shot off. The majority of the time, it’s not easy to do. He’s finding a way to do it a lot, it’s a skill he’s worked hard on and it’s good to have that in the line up.”

On Slava Voynov’s maturation:

“Slava’s been great. He’s been great last year since he got called up. I think it was a big of a log jam here before he got up here, but he’s been awesome and the same thing from when he first got here. We knew we had a really good with him and now he’s delivered. He likes being in the play, he likes being offensive but at the same time he does a really good job of taking care of his own men. He’s been great, we’ve seen that since day one.”

On if he is still learning Russian from Slava Voynov:

“No, I have one phrase.” (MM: “Which is?”)…”I’m not saying it.”

On Slava Voynov scoring with a broken stick:

“That’s playoffs, man. Crazy things happen and that’s it. Sometimes you need that, you need a little luck. We got it last night.”
