February 19 postgame quotes: Jonathan Quick

On the importance of getting two points:
“Every game is important. Every time. It’s so tight that every time you win a game, you jump a spot up. When you lose a game, you drop a spot. We’ve got to keep the momentum.”

On getting into a rhythm with several key saves early in the first period:
“They seem to do that pretty well here. They always have strong starts. You kind of expect that and you prepare yourself for that. I was lucky to make a couple saves and keep it zero-zero, and we ended up playing them much better after that.”

On whether there was a change of trajectory on the one goal he allowed:
“Yeah, I guess it looked like he was shooting glove, and I think it might have hit something, but what are you going to do?”

On Edmonton’s speed:
“Yeah, they’ve got a lot of guys that can skate. It’s fast ice, too. We’ve seen them a few times. We know they’ve got a lot of speed. They like to open it up. They’ve got a lot of guys that are very talented with the puck. I think we did a good job of shutting that down and making them play on the wall. We outplayed them on the wall tonight.”
