Kesler, Perry, Getzlaf on Ducks 4-2 Win Over LA

Ducks GetzlafPostgame quotes from the Anaheim Ducks locker room following their 4-2 win over the visiting Los Angeles Kings…

Ryan Kesler on the third period:

“We kept with it. We didn’t let being down 2-0 going into the third period deter us from our main goal, which was winning the game. We played well all game and got rewarded in the end.”

Kesler on the overall game:

“We turned the corner tonight. That’s the kind of hockey we need to start playing. Not just against LA, but against every team. We knew how well they were playing up until this game, and how few goals they were giving up. We were upbeat and we definitely took it to them in the third period.”

Corey Perry on the overall game:

“It was the game plan that was set before we got out there. I don’t think we got discouraged when they got the second goal. We stuck with it. We just needed that one little spark to get us going. Kes [Ryan Kesler] got us going early. Those are big moments in a game that can turn the tide for us.”

Perry on the ability to erase deficits in the third period:

“It gives us confidence, but you’re not going to come back 2-0 every single night in the third period. This is a tough league. You just have to keep with your game plan. Good things are going to happen.”

Ryan Getzlaf on the message before the third period:

“Just keep going. We were able to keep our composure and play the game all the way through. We got to the net and into the dirty areas to score some goals.”

Head Coach Bruce Boudreau on the overall game:

“For 60 minutes, we played the right way. We didn’t get anything out of it the first 40, but it’s one of those things where you have to keep at it. Eventually we got one, and the crowd got into it.”

Boudreau on the Cogliano-Kesler-Silfverberg line:

“That line has done a great job in the last two weeks against any line we’ve put them up against. They’ve also scored, so it’s a double blessing.”

Boudreau on what this victory does for the team:

“If we play the right way and we bring our ‘A’ game, we’re capable of playing against anybody. It’s just a reminder that when we do that, we’re pretty good. We’ve gotten away from it for the past couple of weeks, so this, hopefully, brings us back as a group.”
