Pre-Game 7: Justin Williams says Kings will use inner arrogance

2014 Williams - not 600 w - Kings NHL MayorsManorKings forward Justin Williams is 5-0 in his career when playing in a Game 7. Following the Kings morning skate at the Honda Center, in advance of tonight’s match-up with the Anaheim Ducks, he shared the following…

Williams on emotions:

“Every Game 7 brings about the same butterflies, anxiousness, and excitement for me. They’re all the same.”

Williams on if elimination games are the same to him too:

“Yeah, pretty much.”

Williams on what’s the right approach to a Game 7:

“I think the most important thing to do in Game 7s – realistically, every game – is trust your instincts. Your instincts are what got you here and most of the time, they’re spot on. That’s what I do. Believe your instincts will help you make the right play. The less thinking the better sometimes.”

Williams on the Kings being relaxed the morning of a Game 7:

“We’re loose. I don’t know the aura that we give out, but we have that quiet arrogance within our group. We’re going to try and use that.”

Williams on if there’s been a winning ingredient that he’s used in all five of his Game 7 appearances:

“Every playoff game is its own entity. In a Game 7, somehow the last six games don’t really matter and you don’t really care what happened. You have one game to advance. That’s what you play in the driveway for, for Game 7s.”
