Toffoli comments after Game 3 win in LA

On playing better than the first two games:

“I think being on the road, you have to bring more intensity. Right from the get go, we had it going. It was a good first period. We got our game going the way we wanted to be playing. We played a full 60 minutes tonight.”

On the message going into tonight’s game:

“We needed to win. We had to play it like it was 0-0 in the series. I think we did that right off the start. Like I said, we had a full 60 minutes. Quickie made some key saves at the right time. We scored big goals.”

On which veteran players are providing mentoring:

“Everyone. Everyone is doing a great job not only with me and Pears, but Muzz and everyone else. All the young guys, we’re all stepping up and playing the right way.”

On playing with the lead:

“I think we just didn’t want to let up. We kept putting pressure on them and getting pucks deep. Kept shooting the puck and getting to the net. I think you saw by all the goals we scored, was getting to the net and putting pucks there and keep getting there.”

On Jeff Carter’s goal:

“It was huge. He got us going. We ha a lot of pressure on them off the start there and Carts scores another big goal for us. It was huge.”

On finding balance knowing there is only one more win but they still have to get that win:

“Yeah, you said it. We have one more win and we have to win it. Doesn’t matter how we do it, but we have to be ready to play next game.”

On Jonathan Quick’s play:

“He made those two huge saves for us and kept us going. When you have a 3-0 lead there, it feels a lot more comfortable than 3-2 or 3-1. He made those huge saves for us at the right time and kept us in there.”

On not having as many giveaways:

“We weren’t playing the right way our first few games. I think we got a little lucky there. We needed to change something and I think we did a great job tonight.”

On wanting to win at Madison Square Garden:

“Doesn’t matter when we do it, we just have to do it.”
