Monarchs Drop Calder Cup Finals Game 3, Patrik Bartosak Quotes

Bartosak-open-mask-by-Rich-TilltonLos Angeles Kings goaltending prospect Patrik Bartosak was thrust into action on Wednesday night, his first appearance of the postseason, when starter J.F. Berube went down with an injury in the first period. Following Manchester’s 3-2 loss to the host Utica Comets in Game 3, Bartosak had this to say…

On the overall game:

“I don’t know, we played a good game. I think we were the better team. We fought hard after O’Neill and J.F. went down. I think we did a very good job of staying in and not letting it go south. I think they were just lucky tonight and we were the better team.”

On if it was tough to come in for Berube, after not playing in quite some time:

“No, not really. My job is to be ready. I knew that I had to be ready and prepared just in case this happens. When I get the chance to go in and play I try to be the best for my team and my teammates. I just do my best.”

On how he felt he played:

“Oh great. I felt confident going in. I felt confident, ready and strong. The result was just not there but I felt good.”

On if it is difficult picking up the series midway through and finding his focus:

“No it’s just another game for me. If I do get to play next game I will just prepare like I did in regular season. Nothing really changes for me. Ill just try to be my best until the end and hopefully do my best.”

On the status of his back:

“Great. Great, if it didn’t [feel fine], I wouldn’t be on the bench tonight.”
