Post-Game 4: Logan Couture – ‘It’s different in their building’

Following the Sharks 2-1 win in Game 4, here’s what Logan Couture had to share…

On the change of the goal credit from Dan Boyle to him:

“It seems like Boyle always gets his goal stolen from him. We need those this time of the year, lucky ones like that, so it’s good to get that one.”

On the each team winning two games at home:

“We knew going into the series we have to win one game at Staples Center if we wanted to win this series. We’ve done our job at home and we need to go into LA and win a game on Thursday. We’re looking forward to it. This has been a  great series so far, both teams have played very well and we’re looking forward to the challenge of going in there and trying to win a game.”

On if Joe Thornton’s play in the first period helped set a tone tonight:

“Yeah, Joe was dominant tonight. It was vintage Joe Thornton right there. Unbelievable.  Creating turnovers, making passes, skaing like a young guy He was flying. Me personally, it got me going. We need Joe to play like that the rest of the playoffs.”

On how he’s currently feeling:

“Wins always make you feel better. Feeling good right now, obviously. Need some rest tomorrow and be ready to go on Thursday.”

On preparation for tonight’s game:

“We still had poise, we’re a veteran group. We’ve been through a lot in this room. A lot of guys , couple guys won a couple Stanley Cups. Calm on the bench, Coaching staff did a great job of keeping us calm.  You know, we played solid defensively. They brought it, we knew they would, but we, aside of the power play goal, kept them out.”

On Darryl Sutter saying there is no such thing as momentum in the playoffs:

“It’s tough to say, it changes game to game. It’s different in their building- they come out harder, they come out forechecking. We have to be ready for that, play on our own end.”

  1. Well, I’m confident Kings can take it at home and steal Game 6 in SJ.

    Horseface McGee and the rest of merry band of dirty players will soon be on the golf course where they belong.

    No Cup for SJ. Kings due for a repeat damn it.

    They are OWED this Cup by the Hockey Gods who are doing everything possible to prevent it (well so far they haven’t tried to take out Doughty; though there have been some close calls…)

    Could you try to get an interview with someone who handles officatiating or a former ref ala the Kerry Fraser ask a ref series on TSN?

    Could we just get some commentary on what this series has looked like officiating wise to a former ref? and how they handle things like the last three games. What are the odds we see another new set of refs for game 5?
