Kyle Clifford on Scoring at Levi’s Stadium

Clifford Stadium seriesQuotes from Los Angeles forward Kyle Clifford following the Kings 2-1 win over the Sharks on Saturday night at Levi’s Stadium…

On his first period goal:

“I saw Muzzy with the puck at the point there, made a good play to get it on net. I was able to get a stick on it. That’s hockey… We had a really good mindset to come out and start the game off good, and that’s what we did. We continued to build off it, we knew this was a big game and we wanted to win it.”

On scoring a goal in front of 70,000 people:

“It’s pretty neat. Obviously, you try to limit the distractions of what’s going on outside the rink. But at the end of the day, it’s a good feeling to get the win.”

On ice conditions changing as the night went along:

“It was the same for both teams, so we didn’t let that affect us and make excuses that it was bad ice or whatever. We just had to go out and play a game, and do everything in our power to win it.”

On his line (with Nick Shore and Jordan Nolan):

“We’re just trying to keep it simple, create energy and get pucks to the net and try to get faceoffs for the big lines in the O-zone.”

On playing with rookie Nick Shore:

“He’s a good player. He’s composed, he has a lot of skill, he’s able to make plays. He has good vision out there. So, you just have to go to the net, get space for him, and he’ll do good things with the puck.”

On if this was a bigger game than last year:

“Yeah, I think for our team, we just take one game at a time. Last year it was an important game. I know we were in the same situation as this year. Obviously this year, we’re fighting with San Jose, so it’s an even bigger game.”
