Matt Greene on possibly playing at Dodger Stadium

Comments from Kings defenseman Matt Greene following the team’s practice at Dodger Stadium on Friday…

On what it means to him, as a season ticket holder, to play in the outdoor game at Dodger Stadium:

“It’s awesome. It’s awesome to be able to get out there and be apart of it, see the action and see what the players see when they’re down there. It’s a lot of fun. This building has a lot of history so it’s really cool to take part in it.”

On if he was ever worried he wouldn’t play due to injuries:

“Yeah. Obviously you just want to play. That’s something you have circled on the date and hopefully I’ll get a chance to.”

On if the physicality of the game will match the game in Anaheim:

“I think so. I think both teams need the points. It’s an outdoor game but at the same time, it’s the same ramifications as a regular game. So you have to be ready for it.”

On the temperature on the outdoor rink compared to inside Staples Center:

“It’s right around the same. I think it’s probably a little warmer out there, right now, but it’s also earlier than it’s going to be tomorrow. Once everything starts going, everybody can relax a little bit and lose track of what’s going on around them. Just kinda be in the moment.”

On what the game will do to hockey in Southern California:

“It’s going to get people who aren’t probably traditional hockey fans out to watch a game, and that’s it. I think hockey is a sport that if you can get somebody to come and watch one time live, then you can get them hooked. Hopefully that’s what happens here. It’s a special venue, it’s going to get a lot of people out there that normally don’t get the chance to see a game with the added exposure and added seats. So, hopefully you can turn them and give them something to get passionate about.”

On his first impressions of the outdoor rink:

“It’s cool. It’s fun coming out of the dug out like that. I think every kid growing up playing Little League and stuff like that, it’s a little bit of a dream. To do it with the gear on- obviously not the right kind- it’s a pretty cool experience.”

On previously being in the Dodgers dugout [incredible video here]:

“That was fun. That was a good time. That was the ultimate experience right there.”
