Game 7: Sharks talk about being eliminated by the Kings

Sharks bench 2014 Playoffs
Post-game comments from the Sharks locker room after being eliminated from the playoffs via a 5-1 victory by the Kings in San Jose…

Head Coach Todd McLellan on Sharks problems:

“When I look at it, I think they fixed their problems, we didn’t. Our problems got progressively worse as we went along. We were awful off the rush. They scored, I don’t know how many goals off the rush, and awful around our net. Every day we came to the rink we tried to stress that – giving up out-numbered rushes. We were never able to fix it. It’s frustrating because during the year we’re pretty good in those areas.”

More from McLellan:

“I disagree. One, we respect that team enough to know. We played them enough, they’ve won the Cup. They play hard and competitively. The problem that we ran into was getting them to understand that the 7-2 and the 6-3 games weren’t going to keep coming. They weren’t going to keep coming. We captured that a little bit in game six, a 1-1 game and then at the end it got away on us. Tonight we weren’t that bad until we gave up an out-numbered rush and it’s in our net. Game over.”

Joe Thornton on the overall game:

“[I’m] So disappointed right now. I felt like we had some good chances it just didn’t go in. It’s just a tough pill to swallow right now… I think their defense just swallowed us right up… They just played real tight defensively and their goaltender got hot like he usually does this time of year… We had the lead one-nothing. That’s the way you want to start. We just couldn’t grab the second one, he (Quick) played that good tonight.”

Patrick Marleau on two goals in last three games:

“Well obviously they tightened things up defensively. We had our opportunities, we just weren’t putting them in. Obviously Quick played really well, too.”

Brad Stuart on the game winning goal:

“It got turned over in the neutral zone I think and they came back at us and had the late guy coming in. He came in and made a nice move and we weren’t able to pick him up.”
