Quick postgame quotes (April 2)

Jonathan Quick’s postgame thoughts…

(on still being confident going into the third period 0-0…)
QUICK: “Absolutely. We were doing everything right. We were outplaying them. You’ve got to tip the cap to Dubnyk over there. He made some terrific saves to keep them in it there for two periods. Slav had a heavy shot there that was able to find its way in. It kind of took a little pressure off everybody. We did a great job the whole game, as far as defensive zone and not giving them much. Our PK was huge, with that double minor that we had to face in the third. We got what we came here for, two points.’’

(on Edmonton not getting a shot during that long power play…)
QUICK: “Yeah, I noticed that. [grins] We did a great job. Maybe once or twice there, they were even able to set up, and we kind of shut down everything that they wanted to get going.’’

(on getting the job done against non-playoff teams…)
QUICK: “Yeah, but at the time, Calgary, they might not have been in the top eight but they were in the same situation we were. So that was like a playoff-like game. But yeah, these last three, mathematically they’re out but they’re still talented teams. They bring a lot to the table. They’re playing loose. They have nothing to lose. They’re just out there, some are fighting for jobs for next year. Everybody has their own reason to play. Just because they’re not in the playoffs doesn’t mean they’re not going to bring a strong game.’’
