Williams postgame quotes

Justin Williams’ postgame thoughts…

(on earning two tough points…)
WILLIAMS: “They’re in the bank. We’re in the win column. They’re a team that has got a lot of skill and if you don’t respect them, they’re going to make you pay. Obviously we didn’t have the best game, but at the end we had our big players step up and score some goals and Quickie made some great saves to get two points, two very important points.”

(on his strong play…)
WILLIAMS: “I’d like to work on my shootout attempts, too. Yeah, I’m happy with the way I played tonight, and that’s another step here. Christmas time is just starting and we’ve got a big part of the season (coming up), where we’ve got a lot of games in a lot of nights, and we’re going to have to be ready. So, a couple days off are going to be good for us to rejuvenate and refresh and get back at it.”

(on passing last season’s point total…)
WILLIAMS: “As I said, it’s just a stepping-stone so far. We’re a little over 30 games in. We’re almost halfway through. The grind of the season is coming up, and this is where I want to contribute the most, and be a very reliable player for us.”

(on Handzus’ tap-pass that led to his goal…)
WILLIAMS: “That’s something we’ve looked at, but I can’t tell you how hard that is, for Zeus to time that, to slow the puck down just enough so that I can skate into it. That’s a pretty skilled move, and at the time it was obviously a big goal because they were kind of giving it to us a little bit.”

(on the Oilers’ play…)
WILLIAMS: “Young, youthful enthusiasm is the name of the Oilers’ game. They’ll come hard and make plays. They’re not afraid to make plays. They’ve got a lot of game-breakers and they’ll be a really formidable team moving forward. Heck, anybody can beat anybody in this league, and records don’t mean anything, not even tonight.”
