Game 1: First batch of Ducks quotes after Kings OT win

Kings Ducks Game 1
Below are the first batch of locker room quotes from the Ducks following LA’s 3-2 OT win in Game 1…

Jonas Hiller on the game-tying goal:

“They just threw it at the net. I thought I got a piece of it, but it got up in the air and he batted it out of the air back door. We weren’t strong enough. We were too passive there.”

Hiller on the overtime goal:

“They suddenly had a 2-on-1 out of nowhere. It was a pass-shot that went off the post and off my back and in. It’s too bad. We had a couple chances in OT to finish it, but at the end it’s still a 1-0 series. We need to focus on the next game and learn from this. We have room for improvement.”

Andrew Cogliano on tonight’s game:

“I thought we were on the forecheck really hard. They went down to five defensemen and we were all over them. [Jonathan] Quick, at the end of the day, made some good saves. I thought we were pretty good.”

Cogliano on the physical style of play:

“If you don’t play the type of style we played tonight, you just won’t beat them. Quick is too good, and they don’t give too much up. We could’ve got more than two goals. We had a number of chances that could’ve gone in.”

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau on tonight’s game:

“When you get scored on with seven seconds to go, it’s a tough pill to swallow. This is what all the games are going to be like. We had opportunities to win the game. We didn’t convert, and they converted when they had to.”

Boudreau on the play of Jonathan Quick:

“We had great chances. Those are ones you have to bury. He’s a great goaltender, but I don’t know if there were great saves other than the one in the first period. That was a big difference maker with [Devante] Smith-Pelly.”
