Sharks players talk 3-2 shootout win over LA Kings

Comments from the San Jose Sharks locker room following their 3-2 shootout win over the visiting LA Kings on Wednesday night…

- Head Coach Todd McLellan on the overall game: “You watch what’s going on in front of you, you have an idea of what your shooter can do. We were beating him with dekes so we tried to find guys that could do that. Obviously Joe Thornton is not a big shooter but he can move his hands pretty well and he ends up coming up with the win.”

- McLellan on the goals: “I’m not sure if Joe really wrapped it around. They had a bit of a miscue and kicked it into their own net. Both teams had one of those goals tonight. We had one bank in off of our skate and in, they had one go off theirs and in. A real evenly played game.”

- Joe Thornton on the overall game: “I was begging coach to look my way [laughs]. It was nice to be involved in one. Down in their building it’s a one-goal game, tonight another one-goal game. Both teams compete hard against each other and you knew it was going to come down to overtime or the shootout and it did. We were just happy with the two points.”

- Joe Pavelski on the overall game: “It’s always like this against them. They’re a good team, they’re simple, they play hard, they’ve got some big bodies. We know it’s going to be low-scoring the way they’ve been playing. It was good to get a lead and play. Guys battled and found a way to win one in the shootout finally.”

- Scott Hannan on the overall game: “That’s definitely not the way you want to start a game. But the guys did a great job. We had a lot of shots on net and created pressure. Give LA credit, they’re a good team. It’s going to be a battle. Every time we play them it’s going to come down to the wire, and it did tonight.”

- Antti Niemi on another one-goal game vs LA: “We play a lot against them. It is always one of the toughest games for us.”

  1. I can respect the Sharks team but I have zero respect for Thornton for 1) Blowing a disrespectful kiss to the Kings fans after a win, and 2) his gross coment after Hertl scored four goals. The man is classless.
