Justin Williams on the possibility of no tomorrow

Comments from Kings forward Justin Williams in advance of Game 6 vs. the San Jose Sharks at Staples Center…

Fair to say that the game plan stays the same for tonight as it was for games 4 and 5?

“Same approach every game when your facing winning or going home. It’s the best you got every shift every time because you might not be coming back tomorrow, so same approach as the last two games.”

Game 5 may have been their worst game ever or is that not giving enough credit to well the LA Kings played?

“Them, I don’t really particularly care about how they play. We are who we are and we need to be the same team that we know we can be. We’ve stopped them from sending us home twice and we need to do it two more times.”

The players have talked about the importance of the first ten minutes of the game and getting the home crowd into the game something the Sharks are going to want to eliminate……

“We expect a huge push from them. At the same time we need to push right back and push stronger and make them aware that we are not going away quietly.”

With all the games that you have played against each other over the past few years both regular season and playoffs, is there anything that hasn’t been uncovered?

“I don’t there is any secrets between these two teams. It’s how you approach the game, how you prepare and play the game and what team wants it more. I feel if we keep pushing because we need to get better then we were last game that’s what we need to do if we want to stay alive.”

The fact that there are 16 guys still on the team from the 2012 Cup team does that help as you try to come back from being down 3-0?

“When I look around the room I have confidence in our players and I hope they feel the same. We have been through a lot together. We haven’t been through a 3-0 series deficit before and we are going through that now so we’ll see how we come out of it. My feeling in this room is that I trust everybody when push comes to shove and we are going to respond and get it done.”
