Game 5: Ducks talk 4-3 win over Kings

Ducks win Game 6 vs KingsQuotes from the Ducks locker room following their 4-3 win over the visiting Kings in Game 5:

John Gibson on the overall game:

“I think I got tested more. I got more shots, and the guys did a really good job in front of me again. That’s why we’re winning.”

Gibson on the final minute:

“We knew they were capable of coming back. It’s happened before in this series, so we knew what to expect. We just had to get the job done and we found a way.

Devante Smith-Pelly on Game 6 Wednesday at Staples Center:

“It’s huge. That’s a pretty good team over there and we don’t want to give them too many chances to get off the mat. We’re going to be ready for that game, for sure.”

Smith-Pelly on the play of John Gibson:

“I’ve said it earlier, it doesn’t surprise me. I’ve seen it all year. He’s doing very well so far, and I know he’s going to continue doing well.”

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau on depth scoring:

“We got three different lines scoring. We had to. It’s something that’s been going on all year. We need that depth to score because sometimes it’s not that difficult to check one line. But when you have four lines with the ability to score, you come out on top.”

Boudreau on the young players making an impact:

“Those guys have come up and played such big roles. You look at tonight, Gibson was the second star and Smith-Pelly was the first star. Sami Vatanen is playing 20 minutes. The youth is really carrying us right now. They’re solid NHL players.”

Boudreau on the series:

“I have to believe they think they were robbed again tonight. They’ll be ready on Wednesday. As far as the strangeness of the series, I can’t explain it. I can explain that to win four games against this team is going to be the toughest job our team has ever had.”
