Quick postgame quotes (April 28)

Jonathan Quick’s postgame thoughts…

(on whether that was the kind of tight game he expected…)
QUICK: “Absolutely. They came out hard in the first 10. We expected that. It looks like it took us about 10, 12 (minutes) to get our legs underneath us. After that, we played a great game. We kept them to the perimeter, cleared out any rebounds and came into the middle. Two huge goals, one on the PK again. Greener stepping up and making a big play there. It’s a great win. We’ve got to enjoy it for five minutes and then focus in on Monday.’’

(on the Kings’ defensive adjustments throughout the game…)
QUICK: “I don’t think we made many adjustments. I just think it was the fact of getting our legs underneath us. This is a tough team, to come into their building, and they came out flying. They’re one of the best teams on home ice in the league. We were able to kind of weather the storm a little bit. They got one early, but we were able to get one back at the end of the first and we continued our strong play through the last two periods there.’’

(on the Blues’ strong start…)
QUICK: “You expect it. Whenever you’re on the road, no matter what time of the year it is, you expect a team to come out flying in the first 10 minutes on home ice like that. This team is no different. They’re one of the best teams on home ice for a reason. That first 10 minutes shows you probably why. They kind of put us on our heels for a little bit, but we weathered the storm a little bit and we were able to tie it up there at the end of the first.’’
