Simmonds postgame quotes - LA Kings Insider

Wayne Simmonds’ postgame thoughts…

(on the importance of a 4-0 road trip…)
SIMMONDS: “Definitely, especially with the playoff race being as tight as it is right now, we need every point we can possibly get. We came out on this road trip and we took all eight points. This is huge.”

(on his goal…)
SIMMONDS: “I just jumped off the bench. Kopi had the puck and I yelled for him and he looked right at me. I just wanted to get it off as quick as possible, and luckily it went in.”

(on being able to play well in tight games…)
SIMMONDS: “I think, since last year, we haven’t made very many mistakes after going into the third period with the lead. Tonight, we gave up a goal, which we would like back, but we came out unscathed and we got the two points, and that’s huge. That’s the way playoff hockey is going to be, and we’ve been in playoff mode for a little while now.”
