Flash quotes from Kings locker room after 6-2 win over Flames

Some quick flash quotes from the Kings’ locker room following their 6-2 win over the Calgary Flames…

– Darryl Sutter on the adjustments in third period: “Well, it was a really good start to the game and then a couple untimely penalties and then we get up 3-2 late in the first so we just regrouped, not too many changes, just reset.”

– Sutter on how the team can improve: “We are still trying to play complete games. We’re coming off a game where we did not, and then the game prior to that where we had to score five goals in the third period, which you aren’t going to do very often, or ever again; so we still have a lot of work we’re trying to do with the guys in term of getting their individual games to where they have to be for us to be successful.”

– Sutter on the victory giving Kings an edge for next game: “I don’t think so, quite honestly that’s not their style and that’s not ours. We play to win games, it’s not about retaliating, looking for something extracurricular is not the game we play, we’re going to have our heads set on playing a disciplined game.”

– Sutter on the progress of team: “Got lots of work to do. As a team…individually we have lots of work to do. If you break it down by position, by who plays with who, they’ve got lots of work to do.”

– Justin Williams on what the team is doing that’s working so well: “I don’t know we’ve got Carter. I think he scores every game so I think it’s opening everything up for the rest of us, but I don’t know as I said, just after the game, we kind of got it, obviously happy with the six goals, but we kind of got it into a little track meet there later on in the third period and that’s certainly not what the Kings are about. The Kings are about a sound defensive team and I thought the first period we were way too loose, let them get a goal late, but you know we found a way to right the ship and had a big second period.”

– Jonathan Quick on what was talked about in the first intermission: “Yeah we just have to be better, you know a lot of little things we need to correct and get better at and I think we did it well the last 40 minutes.”

– Quick on the consistency in goaltender interference calls made: “It’s very hard, I’ll tell you they do a good job of trying to keep it as consistent as possible, it’s very hard because a lot of it is, you’re watching the puck, you’re watching the play and a guy bumps the goalie, it’s kind of a gray area, it’s tough—it’s a tough call to make because no matter what especially on a goal somebody’s going to be mad, but if they make the call interference or they don’t, one team’s not happy and it’s a tough call to make. I thought he got it right there, I’m sure if you go to their locker room, they’ll say you got it wrong, you know that’s how it works.”

– Quick on if Carter is expected to score every game: “I think it is with the fans, it’s kind of funny every time he has a puck, he shoots it doesn’t matter where he shoots it from, it could be from the neutral zone, I feel like the fans expect it to go in. So he’s playing great hockey for us. You know he’s scoring big goals and he’s one of the leaders on the team and we need him to do that and he’s one of the biggest reasons why we are in the standings where we are right now.”
