Game 6: Ducks locker room quotes after Kings tie the series

Comments from the Ducks locker room following LA’s 2-1 win in Game 6 on Wednesday night, tying the series 3-3 and forcing a Game 7 on Friday…

Anaheim Head Coach Bruce Boudreau on Game 7:

“It shouldn’t wind up that way, but that’s the way it’s going to.”

Boudreau on what is it going to take to recover from this loss:

“We’re recovered now. We’re ready to play. They beat us, it’s a tough series, a great team we’re playing, but I mean to think that it’s devastating. It’s ludicrous.“

Boudreau on what it took to get to this point, and what it will take to win:

“I think what it’s going to take is someone getting a lucky bounce, and holding on to the lead. Like I said, they’re a very good team, and they know how to play with the lead. We are going to need 20 players, playing the best game you can play on both sides. There can be no passengers in the next game.”

Boudreau on home ice advantage:

“They wanted to win tonight. You never wait until the seventh game. Look what happened to Boston. You want to win it when you can, and we didn’t get it done. We’ll get better and we’ll get ready, and we’ll play a hell of a game Friday.”

Cam Fowler on game:

“We knew that they were going to come out with a strong push and it just seems that whoever gets the first goal in this series is able to create a lot of momentum. I thought our guys did a good job at battling, unfortunately we just couldn’t crack them one more time, but we have another opportunity in Game Seven in our own building.”

Fowler on the team’s play:

“They weren’t doing much differently, I think our execution wasn’t quite where we wanted it to be and I made some mistakes out there, I felt like I rushed a couple shots a few times and it just seemed like we were out of sync. I thought our last couple power plays were good, I had a grade-A scoring chance and [Jonathan] Quick had an unbelievable save so I wish I had that one back, but we’ll figure it out and it’ll be better in Game Seven.”

Kyle Palmieri on the game:

“Obviously we didn’t get off to the start we wanted but the second period we played well and we got a lot of chances. Their goalie made some big saves at big times and we just got to get out there and get off to a good start on Friday. They’ve been in this situation before and they know what to do with a lead and it was tough to get in and get opportunities on them but overall, I think it wasn’t a full 60 minute effort from us and we’re going to bring better.”

Palmieri on the first to score a goal:

“It changes the game and obviously it’s tough to build momentum on the road in a tough building to play, but it’s going to be nice going home and just start with the drop of the puck on Friday. It’ll be huge and hopefully we’ll get off to a good start and get that first goal that’s been so important in the series.”
