Ducks talk Game 2 loss to Kings

Quotes from the Ducks locker room after their loss to the Kings in Game 2…

RYAN GETZLAF

On giving up the opening goal in 34 seconds

That’s not the start that we expect of our group, especially us up front. That’s not the way we can start a hockey game. That’s on us. We tried to work and get back at it after that. You can’t sulk on those things. We were able to respond pretty quickly after that.

On the mood of the team

I’m ticked off right now. We’re in playoff time right now. There are no excuses for anything. We have to be better, I have to be better, and I expect our group to respond.

COREY PERRY

On not generating traffic in front of the net

You have to battle through that. If you’re going to accept that, you’re not going to have any chances to score. We had a lot of shots, but the quality of second opportunities we didn’t have. He saw a lot of pucks tonight. That’s the frustrating part because we talked about that before the game.

On going into Staples Center down 2-0

It’s a tough building to play in, but we’ve won there before. Hopefully we can go in and play that road game that we want to play. We’ve had success on the road this year and hopefully we can do that.

COACH BRUCE BOUDREAU

On Jonathan Quick

He was pretty good tonight, but if you don’t get traffic in front of him and you don’t go to the net, you’re not going to score. If he can see everything, he’s going to stop it. There were no second chances. They blocked out. We didn’t get to the front of the net to get the rebounds for the dirty, greasy goals that we got all year. If we continue to play the perimeter, we’re not going to have success against him.

On playing comeback hockey

You’ve got to score the first goal, evidently. When they’re playing a little more desperate, they’re dangerous. But you can see how stifling they can be just getting it out. No matter how hard you’re trying to get it deep in the forecheck, they know how to close the door.

In turn, the Kings had plenty to say as well - click here for comments from Jonathan Quick and Darryl Sutter… here for comments from Ducstin Brown… and here for Drew Doughty’s response to Corey Perry squirting water in Jeff Carter’s gloves.
