Getzlaf upset, talks Ducks win over Kings

Comments from Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf following Anaheim’s 2-1 win over the visiting LA Kings on Thursday night…

On tonight’s game being a good preview for Saturday:

“Yeah. Good hockey game. That was a hard fought game, up and down the rink. I’m glad we came out on top of this one.”

On being upset with Trevor Lewis’ hit on Bryan Allen:

“We’ll I was upset with it, because we came out of the lockout with one mandate and that’s that back-checking hit where the guys in a vulnerable spot. The explanation I get is that it’s not a head shot, but the way I interpret the rule and the way everybody else does, is that anything on that back check where that guys in a vulnerable spot like that. He hits the boards pretty hard.”

On Dustin Penner scoring:

“It was good. You know what, Pens has been working hard, he’s been doing the right things. We’ve had guys in and out of the line up, not because of their play, just because of the depth that we have here and the different line ups we’ve been facing. So, it was good to see Pens get rewarded for that.”

On if the goal being waved off motivated the team:

“Sure, I don’t know. We we’re playing pretty hard at that point. Obviously after that it was kind of a let down, when you work that hard, and you see Jacko and those guys work really hard and get rewarded for it and then get it taken away.”

On Tim Jackman’s line:

“They played great for us. I mean they did a lot of good things in a lot of areas that people don’t see. We see it in the locker room.”

On tonight’s game compared to against the Winnipeg Jets:

“We played okay against Winnipeg. I didn’t think we started the way we needed to against them. Obviously tonight we we’re ready to go. Obviously we got down in the game but we played hard and kept doing the right things.”

On if he can start focusing on the outdoor game:

“Yeah, it’s nice. I mean the hardest thing has been to focus on the task at hand for the last two weeks. Everyone wants to talk about it and build it up and we’re grateful for that. It’s going to be a good experience and we’re glad it’s here now.”

On tonight’s game being tough:

“It was. It was a great hockey game. You look up and down the rink, the shots on goal we’re pretty even. The goalies played great. We came through when we needed to at the end which is a good uplift for our team.

On if he has ever played in an outdoor game:

“Not organized, that’s for sure.”

On if he is in favor of the outdoor game:

“Yeah, that’s great. I’ve been asking for an outdoor game out here for a long time as soon as I heard they could actually, physically do it. I think it’s going to be a good experience for the fan. It’s great to not have to go out there and freeze my butt off.”
