Scuderi postgame quotes

Rob Scuderi’s postgame thoughts…

(on this being a “trap” game…)
SCUDERI: “I think so. We’re coming off a big road trip. First of all, I’m not making excuses for our play. But you look at it, and we’re coming off a big road trip, a lot of energy, a lot of excitement. We come back, and we’re playing a team that’s technically still alive (in the playoff race) but maybe on their last gasp of air, and we just came out flat. Right from the get-go, every single guy. The only guy who probably was ready to go was Quickie [Jonathan Quick]. I thought he was tremendous in the first two-and-a-half periods. A couple tough ones, lucky bounces, and he was probably exhausted at that point. A trap game? Maybe. Sometimes you’re going to have to fight through those.”

(on the second goal being a back-breaker…)
SCUDERI: “It’s tough, at the end of the second period, but what are you going to do? We were completely outplayed for two periods. We’ve scored two goals in a period before. You’ve got to keep battling. Even if things aren’t going your way, you have to find a way to do something. You have to do something for the team, and that’s up to each individual in here, to figure out what it is. I thought, third period, maybe there were some signs of life. The puck seems to skip on the third one. Certainly it’s deflating, but we’re a team and you’ve got to keep battling and see what happens.”
