Game 7: Quick and Williams not satisfied with Round 1 win

Kings 2014 playoffs
More post-game comments from the Kings locker room after eliminating the Sharks from the playoffs via a 5-1 victory in San Jose…

Jonathan Quick on if he has any personal satisfaction:

“No extra personal satisfaction. All it means is we get to play in a couple of days against Anaheim.”

Quick on how much being together as a group for a long time helped them comeback:

“I don’t know. That’s tough to gauge. We have got bodies this year, we got new bodies last year. Guys step in and play great for us. The guys that have been here for a few years, we believe in each other and believe in the guys that came in for their first year with the team. The fifth win is tougher than the fourth one, so we have a game to get ready for in a couple of days and that’s all I focus on.”

Quick on the easy travel in Round 2:

“Yeah, travel is a lot easier. I’m looking forward to that. That’s one positive there to the draw. Obviously they’re a great team, so there is a lot of things we have to prepare for. Travel isn’t one of them.”

Quick on killing off six penalties:

“Obviously we would have liked to not put ourselves in that position where we had to kill six, but our PK did a great job and at times we bent a little bit but we didn’t break. We forced them to make plays that they didn’t want to make and a couple of plays that we needed to get.”

Justin Williams on if being together as a team for awhile contributed to their comeback:

“We’ve been through a lot together. Now we’ve been through a 3-0 comeback. There’s really not much else out there. When I look around the room, I’ve trusted in our room. I know the guys feel the same way.

Williams on playing the Ducks:

“We’ll be ready for them, but we’re going to enjoy this one.”

Williams on his Game 7 success:

“I don’t know. I have a strict belief that if I wasn’t going to do it, someone else on the team was going to score. It’s my job to help this team win. When we do, I feel great about it. That stuff, I don’t think about right now. It’s stuff that when you retire you look back and see how you performed under pressure. That’s just one step for us, we have a lot more to go.”

Williams on killing six penalties:

“Our PK stepped up. We killed obviously far too many penalties. We were 7-2 in penalties. We killed far too many. The boys on the ice did what they do and blocked shots. Quickie did what he did and didn’t let it get pass the goal line.”

Williams on how the overall series unfolded:

“We were responsible for our own stupidity, being down 0-3. We’ll take note not to do that again.”

Williams on celebrating the fact the Kings just made history:

“Celebrations are for the last game of the season. Other than that, you enjoy it. But I want to celebrate.” (ed. note: he meant he wants to win another Cup, not celebrate tonight’s win)
