Brown postgame quotes (May 6)

Dustin Brown’s postgame thoughts…

(on reaching the Western Conference Finals…)
BROWN: “It’s the first time in 20 years, 19 years, whatever it is, so we’re proud of this group, to do that. We probably have a night to enjoy it. We don’t want to be known as the only other Kings team to make it past the second round, though.’’

(on Jonathan Quick’s game…)
BROWN: “We found a way to win the game, and he was a big part of it. We didn’t play very well in the second, and maybe even in the first five minutes of the third. That was reminiscent of what he’s done for us all year. We had maybe a little bit of a letdown in the second. I’ve said this I don’t know how many times, but it’s Quickie being Quickie.’’

(on what he thought after scoring the empty-net goal…)
BROWN: “Just excitement. Once I got around him, I knew it was over. Kopi was probably a little more excited than me. I don’t think he realized how big he is. He jumped about two feet in the air. He was about 27 inches above me.’’

(on the game…)
BROWN: “We didn’t have the offensive attack that we wanted in the second (period) and they were all over us. We found a way to bend but not break, and that is something that this team hasn’t relied on, but learned how to do that when we need to. We regrouped, coming in here, and it was back-and-forth in the third (period), but we found a way.’’

(on winning the series at home…)
BROWN: “There are multiple advantages from a rest standpoint. Obviously, it’s huge not having to get back on a plane and playing Game 5. I can only imagine how happy Kings fans are right now. They’ve been through a rough stretch. To win on home ice is huge for everyone is this room, but it was nice to see the fans get jacked up as much as they could. They haven’t had an opportunity to celebrate that yet at home.’’
