Dustin Penner scores, beats Kings, shares thoughts

On his special celebration after scoring a goal:

“I celebrated like that before.”

On if the goal felt a bit extra special:

“Do you want me to say I felt a bit extra? I’ve done that before.”

On the game being a tight battle:

“It’s always going to be like that against these guys, especially with the way the teams and organizations have grown over the past decade. It’s going to be a hard fought game. This is the type of game that you put up on the bulletin board and say that’s what playoff hockey is like. You always refer back to that and see how you played in those situations.”

On if he is still chatting with the Kings:

“I don’t know, I haven’t been outside yet.”

On if it’s easier going into the outdoor game after tonight’s win:

“Yes.”

On if tonight’s win proved that the Ducks can win by playing different styles of hockey:

“I hope so. We want to be able to. It’s playoff hockey. Most of these guys know what that’s about. It’s about getting the young guys to learn it’s not always going to be a transitional, turn-over game where you can get your feet going. It’s quick strides, three, four steps, chip the puck in, get in, lay some bodies, and hope to get a bounce or two.”

On if the team was frustrated after the first period:

“There’s always frustration when you get out shot like that in your own building, but it’s how you bounce back. We wouldn’t be in the position we are now if we, for lack of a better word, bent over and took it the rest of the game.”

On if it getting easier for him to play for Bruce Boudreau:

“Yeah, we’ve had some nice dinners together. So I’ve got to know him on a personal level.” (MM: “I’m assuming that’s sarcasm?”) “Yeah it is.”
