Williams postgame quotes (March 28)

Justin Williams’ postgame thoughts…

(on the solid 60-minute effort…)
WILLIAMS: “We skated tonight, and we controlled the game because of it. We seemed to be on our toes. Everyone was reading off of each other good. That’s the main thing. We were on our toes and we didn’t give them any space out there. They’ve got some guys who can dangle, who can make some moves. We shut them down. We did a good job on the PK as well.’’

(on scoring an early goal…)
WILLIAMS: “It’s great for the psyche, absolutely. I think, all too often, sometimes you fall into the trap of getting comfortable, and we certainly didn’t do that tonight. We kept going at them. We didn’t give them anything in the neutral zone, and in turn they didn’t have many rush chances.’’

(on improvements from the previous game…)
WILLIAMS: “It’s just work. That’s all it is. I’d like to try to analyze it a little more, but it’s plain and simple, cut and dried. We had guys on the forecheck. Their D didn’t have any time to make plays, and when they did, we finished them. I thought we played a good 60 minutes.’’

(on whether it’s nice to hear the opposing fans boo…)
WILLIAMS: “It certainly is, yes. Absolutely. When you can beat a team and have that killer instinct like we did tonight, we kept coming at them. Any time you hear boos in the opposing arena, that’s certainly what you want.’’
