Kings coaches to Jeff Schultz – ‘You know how to play’

Early Monday Morning, defenseman Jeff Schultz received his 2013-14 Player Evaluation from MayorsManor correspondent Andy Tonge (who covered the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs for us this season). Several hours later – not that there’s really much of a correlation between the two events taking place on the same day – Dean Lombardi’s summer 2013 signing finally made his Kings debut. Following Game 2 vs. the Ducks, here’s what Schultz had to share…

On not allowing the Ducks to score a lot despite multiple chances:

“Yeah, we know how good they are, especially on the power play. As a whole, we’ve done a real good job of doing that. I’m sure they’re getting frustrated.”

On first playoff game with the Kings:

“It was exciting. A rivalry that I’m sure a lot of people wanted to see. The best part was coming away with the victory.”

On if practicing with the team in the past helped calm his nerves:

“Yeah, I think just being around the guys. The guys made me real comfortable this morning and before the game. The coaches just said to go out there and play how you know how to play.”

On if the Monarchs and the Kings have similar systems:

“Yeah, it’s the exact same systems. So, very familiar with it from throughout the year. Didn’t have to change anything.”

On if he was nervous to play:

“Yeah, there were some nerves this afternoon coming to the rink. I just kind of went through my normal game time routine and got through warm up and tried to kind of limit by shift lengths so I can get in the game.”
