Flash quotes from Kings locker room after Game 7 win over Sharks

We’ll have a lot more quotes coming up soon.

But, here’s some quick stuff for you guys to chew on…

Sutter on Quick: “He made some big saves tonight, as did [Anti] Niemi.”

Sutter on playing a full 60 minutes: “I think the most important part of the series that has been well documented is the team that scores the first goal is the team that won the series, that won games. In terms of turning points or special players or anything like that I think that both teams are going to say “one team lost and one team won” and we scored the first goal and we were able to find a way.”

Sutter on the overall game recap: “I think we were competing as hard as we could and we tried to start the game with a full tank and I think we had some guys that were on empty at the end.”

Sutter on comparing team to last season’s playoff team: “[We’re] not close yet. Not even half close.”

Justin Williams on his two goals: “Goals are tough to come by, it just so happened I was able to get a couple tonight. I think I could have had a few more also. Sometimes the puck bounces your way. Certainly glad to help out today.”

Williams on if the goals were opportunistic: “Yeah I’d say so. Sometimes you get a few more opportunities than you usually get, sometimes you can’t explain it but my line makes some great passes to me and some good turnovers, and we were able to hold on.”

Williams on his performance in game: “I don’t know I certainly enjoy pressure situations, I know everyone in this dressing room does. We pride ourselves on being a team that, push come to shove, we’re going to get it done. We’ve been through it before and we know we can do it.”

Jonathan Quick on the overall game: “It’s no different than any other game when you have a lead. I think if you start approaching it differently just because it’s a win or go home, I think if you approach it differently and now you’re adjusting your game based on the circumstances. You got to try to play your same game no matter what’s going on around you. I think the guys prepared that way.”

Quick on the resilience of the team and always getting the win: “Not necessarily. We would have liked that win in Game 6 so we were able to get it on home ice. Obviously if we’re going to be able to continue in the playoffs we have to win some road games. We got to figure out what’s going on there. We got to get better at it. We had a chance to close it out two nights ago. Sometimes if you give those games up, it might come back and bite you. We were able to win tonight but we definitely know there’s room for improvement. Both Detroit and Chicago are going to be very challenging. We have a lot to prepare for.”
