In the Room: Kings and Ducks talk LA’s overtime win

MM-shield-1400x1400Following the Kings overtime win vs. the visiting Anaheim Ducks on Saturday afternoon, here is what was being said in both locker rooms:

Darryl Sutter on the win:

“Every win is nice, every game is its own season. We played just as well last game as we did tonight.”

Sutter on the difference between Ducks games:

“One was a shootout game and one was an overtime game, so it tells you how close they are.”

Sutter on Alec Martinez:

“Everything went well, they had to clean up his nail and his finger so when it heals he’ll be good to go.”

Jarret Stoll on the overall game:

“We came out and did a lot of things. We’ve been spending a lot of time in the defensive zone. Today, we came out and we were physical and we were getting pucks in deep. There were points where we needed to be a little better, but Quick came up big when we needed him to. Some big penalty kills and a big power play goal in the third. I think everyone can attest to how well they move the puck around and basically almost two minutes in their zone and we came up with a big goal.”

Stoll on his first goal of the season:

“It feels great. It’s been a while. I’m trying hard but it feels great to get that goal”

Tyler Toffoli on his fourth shorthanded goal of the season:

“It was a good battle in the corner and Stoll was yelling at me in the middle there. I just gave him a little chip and he gave it right back and we had a nice two-on-one.”

Toffoli on earning points:

“In any division game it’s huge. I think we needed to come back and have a big effort. Unfortunately they got one tonight but we got the extra one and that’s what matters.”

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau on the overall game:

“I don’t know if they were controlling the game, as much as we had a couple penalties and were protecting the lead rather than playing the way we were supposed to play. For the most part, I thought it was a pretty even game. They were playing pretty desperate today, but I thought either team could have won.”

Boudreau on the compete level with so many big names out of the lineup:

“I thought we were right there every moment of the game. They scored two power play goals and a short-handed goal. I thought 5-on-5 scoring chance wise in the first half of the game we were well ahead; we just couldn’t get the one goal to give us the two goal lead.”

Boudreau on goalie Freddy Anderson keeping them in the game:

“He was exceptional. I knew Freddie would come back and have a really good game, and he did. You keep saying the he kept us in the game, but I think Quick kept them in the game. We didn’t have as many shots on goal, but we had as many scoring chances.”

Ryan Kesler on the overall game:

“Just had a couple unlucky breaks tonight. It’s going to happen over 82 [games]. I thought we battled hard and we competed. They had a push in the first period and we absorbed it and pushed back. We played well but obviously not well enough to win.”

Kesler on the Kings power play:

“I think their second goal was a good play. Good players make good plays. We could have had better sticks but they made a good play on that one. The second power play goal was a fluke. You don’t see many of those go in.”

Kesler on feeling confident going into the third period:

“Having them down two to one going into the third, on the road, you’d take that every night. We just have to learn how to play with a one-goal lead in here. There’s no panic in this room. We’re playing well but we’re not getting the two points right now. We just have to look at ourselves in the mirror and get 5% more and things are going to turn around for us.”

Ducks goalie Fredrik Andersen on the overtime goal:

“I think he [Justin Williams] tried to put it in front and it hit something and then squeaked through my legs I guess. Bad bounce so unfortunately we couldn’t get it done.”

Andersen on only getting one point today:

“We want to get two points every night. That’s how it goes, though. We have to battle through this and be ready for tomorrow.”
