February 27 postgame quotes: Jonathan Bernier

On finishing the game with a good feeling after an early ugly goal against:
“Yeah, that was a fluke one, you know? I’m not even sure where it hit me. Probably my back or my head or something. But we stuck with it. We scored that big first one. We knew if we scored one, we’d have a pretty good chance to win that game, and we did.”

On the slow start to the game:
“Well, they had a few power plays, and I think it got them going a little bit. But PK was big tonight. We scored that big power play goal, and that’s the league. If you’re good on special teams, most of the night you’re going to come out with two points.”

On his view of Kopitar’s goal from across the ice:
“It’s going to be ESPN highlight for sure. That was a great pass by Kinger, and way to finish by Kopi.”

On the team getting comfortable later in the game:
“We were playing on our heels a little bit, and after that I thought we started chipping pucks, getting those pucks deep. That’s our game. When we cycle the puck and we play down low, we’re a very successful team, and I think that’s what happened in the second.”
