Williams postgame quotes (May 30)

Justin Williams’ postgame thoughts…

(on his pass to Anze Kopitar in overtime…)
WILLIAMS: “Their D kind of came down the wall a little bit, and then their other D came over at me. I wasn’t sure if Kopitar was alone, but I knew he was over there, so I just kind of threw it over there. My linemates have been terrific this whole playoff, Kopi and Brownie, and he scored another big goal for us.’’

(on getting a goal against the run of play…)
WILLIAMS: “Yeah, certainly. They’re a great team. They come at you hard. They don’t give you any space. They’ve got a heck of a forecheck and a great goalie. We expect more of this throughout the series.’’

(on his pass to Kopitar…)
WILLIAMS: “It’s just an area pass, and you hope the guy skates into it. We didn’t have our best tonight. We know that we can play better, and we’re planning on doing that.’’

(on playing Game 1 after the long break…)
WILLIAMS: “I thought we handled the layoff pretty well. Mentally, we just need to get more focused. The ice wasn’t very good, so we need to take that into consideration. All in all, we’re excited with the win, but we need to follow it up.’’
