Jarret Stoll on Kings 3-2 win in Anaheim and rookie Martin Jones

Jarret Stoll LA Kings playoffs MayorsManor CBA lockoutPost-game comments from Jarret Stoll following the Kings 3-2 shootout win over the host Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night…

Overall reaction to the game:

“It was a great hockey game, start to finish. It was a great pace. The first ten minutes, there was only one whistle, I think. Some power plays, some big goaltending -great goaltending, obviously. It went right down to the end. It was a fitting way to end the game. Big two points for us. A big four points in two days.”

On the challenge Martin Jones faced, going nine rounds in the shootout:

“Yeah, you don’t go nine rounds too often. That’s a testament to both goalies and how they played. How well they were reading plays. Jonesy, he read those shooters pretty well, you could tell. He doesn’t know many of those shooters, at all, but he did a great job in there. Give him a lot of credit; give our whole team a lot of credit. It was a tough back to back for our team and we came out with flying colors, I think.”

On getting more ice time recently with some of the more offensively gifted players on the team:

“Yeah, it’s great. You want to play as as many minutes as possible, as many situations as possible and you want to contribute, too. You want to win games, no matter how it is. If you’re contributing or not, as long as you’re winning games. It’s always fun to play more and to be put in those offensive situations.”

On if this game felt bigger than a normal regular season game because of the outdoor game hype:

“No, we weren’t thinking of the outdoor game. I’m pretty sure they weren’t, either. It’s a game that two good teams were playing well and two teams that are at the top of the league that have good records. These guys have a great home record. We wanted to knock them off in regulation. We didn’t do it, but got the two points and it was just a heck of a hockey game. It was a fun game watch for the fans, I’m sure, and it was a great game to play in.”
