Dustin Brown – ‘We have the best goalie in the world’

Kings Ducks Game 2 Quick Brown
Comments from Dustin Brown after the Kings 3-1 win in Game 2 vs. the Ducks on Monday night…

Dustin Brown on Quick:

“We’re lucky to have Jonathan Quick in our goal. He makes big saves for us at key times and allows us to kind of squeak one out [in] the end.”

Brown on being 2-0 in series:

“It’s two games. Been through this process enough times over the last four to five years to understand it’s about the next game. They’ve been the best team in our conference all year. It’s going to be a fight.”

On how many Kings fans came to Honda Center:

“Kings fans have been die-hard fans for years and years. We’ve gotten better and probably gained a few more fans over the five, six years, but the fans when we weren’t very good, they tend to me the loudest.”

On if he was catching a 2012 Stanley Cup vibe on this club:

“It’s very early. Let’s focus on Game 3. That year – everyone wants to talk about 2012 – that team and the way we kind of went through the playoffs, it’s very hard to expect that at any point in the future.”

On if he knew that Corey Perry put water in Jeff Carter’s glove:

“I know he did it last game. I guess he had to try to get an edge anyway he can.”

On how much he notices the crowd:

“You don’t really notice it. Maybe after the empty-net goal you notice the chant of Kings fans, but that’s because it’s rather quiet. When you’re playing, you don’t notice it.”

On if he expected to win six in a row after being down 0-3:

“You take it a game at a time. You don’t think about winning six straight. This time of year, it’s irrelevant how hot you can get, because if you get cold real quick, you’re out. It’s about taking it game to game.”

On Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson:

“I think that they have chemistry from playing a couple of years in the minors and they come up and fit well because they can skate and they can pass. They’ve been a big part of our team and a reason why we can roll our lines the way we do. They haven’t played up all year and when they have, they showed that they are capable. I think they can hold their own.”

On if the Ducks are frustrated that they can’t score:

“I can’t speak on their frustration. I know if that if we want to continue to win games, we’re going to have to be a lot better on our defensive side. I’ve said this already, we won the game tonight because we have the best goalie in the world.”
