Simmonds postgame quotes

Wayne Simmonds’ postgame thoughts…

(on the two goals…)
SIMMONDS: “We’re obviously without our top two scorers right now, so you’ve got to crash and bang the net to get results. In the playoffs, a lot of the goals, a lot of the deciding goals, are caused by crashing the net. I think that’s the type of attitude we have to have, just go to the net strong with our sticks on the ice, and we’ll be successful.”

(on his new line with Brad Richardson and Kyle Clifford…)
SIMMONDS: “We’re all lively legs. We like to get on guys and I think we read well off each other. We’re always in support positions for each other and close to each other for cycles, and obviously that works out well.”

(on the game-winning goal…)
SIMMONDS: “I wanted to throw it up there to Cliffy. Cliffy kind of boxed out Goligoski and I tried to throw it to him, but I think he cross-checked Cliffy and Cliffy fell. It just went right out to Greener and he put it in the net.”
