Game 2 morning skate – Five questions with Slava Voynov

Voynov - Game 1 Kings Sharks 2013
On if he’s found a way to take it up a notch in the playoffs:

“Good question.  I don’t know.  I just try and play how I can play in every game. But in the playoffs, it’s a different game too. So I play a little bit better.”

On if he’s tired after the 48-games in 99 nights during the regular season and then a tough series with the Blues:

“I’d say I’m like everybody else, but  I played 37 games more in Manchester (big smile).  No, I feel great.  I’m ready to play.  Plenty of energy and emotion.”

On contributing to the offense in Game 1:

“I feel the same as when I’m not scoring goals, I don’t care.  As long as we win.”

On if he feels there’s more space against the Sharks than there was against the Blues:

“Not really.  All the time I try to play quicker everywhere.  If you play quick, I don’t care if it’s physical or not physical.  Maybe there’s a little bit more time, but it’s the same game.”

On who scores first tonight:

“Jeff Carter.”
