Smyth postgame quotes

Ryan Smyth’s postgame thoughts…

(on his late non-goal…)
SMYTH: “We shot ourselves in the foot early on. We had chances early on that we should have buried, so it shouldn’t have come down to that. Give them credit. They battled hard, kept in it and found ways and Spezza scored a nice goal.”

(on whether officials said it was a high stick…)
SMYTH: “Yeah.”

(on the two calls that didn’t go the Kings’ way…)
SMYTH: “That happens sometimes, and you’ve got to fight through that and overcome those types of things. It’s frustrating when they are pretty obvious. That’s what they were saying, that our video coaches were saying, that it was a good goal. So it’s frustrating, but we’ve got to overcome those type things.”

(on whether he thought it was a high stick…)
SMYTH: “Well, when I tipped it I brought my stick back down, so I think it was pretty close. I thought it was a good goal. … It would have been great. Three seconds left. It would have been a nice turning point, for sure.”
