One-on-One with Matt Greene before Game 4

Comments from our chat with Matt Greene after the Kings morning skate in advance of Game 4…

On keeping composure and not getting ahead of themselves as in 2012:

“I think it’s once they focus and approach it as a game and that’s it—that’s when we have success. So don’t think about too much else.”

On his own improvement:

“Yes. I started to feel good, started to get a rhythm. Yes. Feeling good now.”

On if there was any particular moment he felt he’d turned a corner:

“Just getting more comfortable, more comfortable playing every game. That’s it. In the Anaheim series, I started to feel pretty good and then I feel I just made adjustments as we went along and that’s it. But it’s tough because at this time of year, every game’s a new challenge, so you’ve got to be ready to start fresh every game.”

On if, as a veteran player, he’s soaking in the situation the Kings are in now:

“You’ll enjoy it later. Right now you just focus on the task at hand and try to make it into something special.”

On if there’s a difference in atmosphere in the room today versus that of Game 4 in 2012:

“I think so. Guys know what to expect now. The guys are excited, ready to go, but they also know that we could have done some things differently than before.”

On the importance of closing it out tonight:

“You want to win every game you play. So that’s it. You don’t want to give them life. You want to take care of business.”
