April 30 postgame quotes: Rob Scuderi

On getting a late game-tying goal after St. Louis’ performance early:
“You’re hoping that it’s a deflater for the other team, so late in the third period, right before overtime. I did think that we’d build on that. We played well in the overtime. We had some good chances. We were starting to get the puck north quicker, and it translated into more offensive opportunities. At the end of the day, it wasn’t meant to be.”

On the confidence of knowing they’ve beaten St. Louis before:
“It’s not so much that, but what are you going to do? Are you going to sit back and feel sorry for yourself and then cost your self two games? Or you can try to learn from your mistakes, dust yourself off and try to win a game on Thursday, so I’m hoping that we’re going to pick the latter.”

Considering L.A.’s success against St. Louis and the way the game ended, whether the Blues may think that they got “a lucky one”:
“No, I wouldn’t say that, considering they dominated most of the game. I think if you’re talking about the last 15-to-20 minutes of game time, I thought we were starting to come around. We were starting to play better. But overall, like I said, we just have to kind of push it under the rug as hard as it is sometimes and try to come back fresh tomorrow.”
