Instant Locker Room Quotes: Flyers shutout the Kings in LA

Instant quotes from the Kings and Flyers locker rooms following Philadelphia’s 2-0 win in LA on Saturday afternoon at Staples Center:

Coach Darryl Sutter on the overall game:

“You have to score to win, you can’t win with nothing. You can’t get frustrated; you can’t allow guys who are playing well to get frustrated, you have to see if they can work their way out of it.”

Sutter on the pressure on Jonathan Quick:

“I don’t think it puts pressure on Quick, he’s going to play the same way every night, it’s not about one guy.”

Sutter on Robyn Regehr playing in his 1,000th NHL game:

“With the injuries he’s had, you have to give him a lot of credit for him to continue to play the same way and continue to be a really good role model for young players. By the way he trains, and not just the game, he’s obviously not the player he was because that’s just what happens as you get older, but the role model part is really good especially for the young players to see that.”

Sutter on Monday’s Chicago game:

“We’ll think about Chicago tomorrow.”

Kings forward Tyler Toffoli on finding goals:

“We just need that dirty goal. I think we had chances to bury them tonight and kind of couldn’t finish them so I think we’ve really got to bare down. It’s time to get going and get us back on track. Just two or three games before the break so we’ve got to get ourselves back in the right direction.”

Toffoli on his line with Carter & Kopitar:

“Well they’re obviously really good players and they communicate well. Like you said, we had a lot of chances but we’ve just got to get the dirty goal. We’re getting lots of chances and shots but it doesn’t really matter in the end.”

Kings goalie Jonathan Quick on LA’s losing streak:

“Obviously you want to win. I wouldn’t say the team is uncomfortable. Everybody is comfortable with each other. We’ve been together for a long time. We’ve been through stuff like this in the past so we know we have the ability to get through it.”

Quick on a lack of luck:

“No, you make your luck. We’ve got to be better as a team. It doesn’t matter how we win the games, we’ve just got to find ways to win games.”

Flyers coach Craig Berube on being pleased with winning a low scoring shutout:

“We played good defensively, we battled hard. We talked about playing the Kings, they are a big, strong team. They play good defense, we need to match that. I thought our guys did a good job. I know we didn’t create a lot offensively, but we capitalized on the power-play goal which is huge. I like the battle. I like the competitiveness of the team right now.”

Berube on getting a road shutout:

“I’m pleased with the win. The Anaheim game we lost, but I really liked our competiveness in the game. I liked the way we played. Come here today and play another big, strong, good, Western team, again we were competitive. I think that’s the key.”

Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds on the physical play today:

“L.A. is a big team, they like to grind it out. They got pucks deep. They have big bodies and they play a physical game. I think we matched them hit for hit today. I think the last few games have been a test for the character in our dressing room. I think we have done a good job.”

Flyers forward Brayden Schenn on blocking shots:

“It’s really important that we block shots. You want to get in the lanes and block as many as possible. I think Mason kept is in it for most of the game. He obviously had a great game. Sometimes you need your goalie to bail you out, and he did tonight.”
