Brown postgame quotes (May 22)

Dustin Brown’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
BROWN: “It was a battle, and Pens scores a big goal for us in overtime. It was one of those games where everyone was giving it their all. It wasn’t the cleanest execution for either team, probably, but we found a way to win and that’s the most important thing.’’

(on his overtime hit on Michal Rozsival…)
BROWN: “I haven’t really seen a highlight of it. Rozsival was cutting to the middle and I cut across and made contact. Obviously they thought it was kneeing. I felt I got him with my shoulder. My left side and his right side all made contact, from toe to shoulder.’’

(on debris being thrown on the ice…)
BROWN: “I can’t really speak for the fans, I guess. Seeing the players upset, it’s an emotional game out there. You give them the benefit of the doubt. Their season just ended and they’re upset and emotions can boil over. They were upset. Like I said, the fans throwing stuff on the ice doesn’t have anything to do with us.’’

(on whether the Kings took advantage of the Coyotes being distracted after that play…)
BROWN: “I’m not sure. The game-winning goal, it happened pretty quick. The draw, right down to the zone, shot, rebound, goal. I don’t know, really. It just happened so quick. It’s an exciting time.’’

(on whether any harsh words were exchanged during the handshake line…)
BROWN: “I’d rather not comment.’’

(on how it feels to reach the Finals…)
BROWN: “Pretty exciting. We have a few guys who have been in here who have had the opportunity, and a lot of guys who haven’t. It’s what you play for.’’
