Nick Shore Post-Game Quotes After NHL Debut

461703276_slidePost-game comments from Nick Shore after his NHL debut vs. the Anaheim Ducks…

On not getting a win in his NHL debut:

“It was a great experience. You work a long time to get to a spot like this, but like you said, it’s a little disappointing. I think we all came out looking for the win. It didn’t happen.”

On how it was to play in his first NHL game:

“Obviously, a little nervous the entire day going into it. But after the first couple of shifts, you just sort of get in a groove and start playing hockey.”

On the Kings needing points:

“Yeah, I mean Anaheim is a great team. We knew it was going to be a challenge tonight. I think we’re going to look back on it and get better from it, but right now, just a little disappointed with the loss.”

On if he had a “Welcome to the NHL” moment:

“I wouldn’t say so. Just being apart of the whole game and obviously the ceremony with Blake at the beginning was a cool experience.”

On being on the ice for the power play:

“We didn’t get it done but they scored right after that, so that gave us a huge boost at the time towards the end of that period on the four minute. Any time you’re out there on the ice, you’re going to try to contribute.”

On possibly playing against his brother Drew (and the Calgary Flames) on Monday night:

“Haven’t really thought about it too much. I’ll have to talk to him and see how their game went tonight.”
