May 4 postgame quotes: Jonathan Quick

On whether this win was “just another game” or a “relief”:
“It’s another game. We did what we had to do to win the game. When you look at all the games between us and these guys, it’s going to be hard-=fought. The team that out-works the other team is going to end up winning it, usually. I think we did a great job as far as a work aspect goes. There’s definitely things we need to clean up to get better at. I think PK really got us the win there.”

On the special teams performance in Game 3:
“PK was huge all night. We did a good job disrupting their entries, a lot of times not giving them a chance to set up. I just thgouht guys were great even in zone blocking shots, clearing rebounds. It’s what we’re going to need to do in order to win games, so we’ve got to keep that going.”

On what he saw on Slava Voynov’s goal:
“Yeah, scramble, puck jumps out, he takes a shot, it goes in. It’s not too clear from where I am.”

On whether he was happier than Voynov to see the puck go in:
“I’m sure we everybody was pretty happy right there. Everybody gets happy when we score.”

What he saw in his own zone that can be cleaned up:
“I thought we were great in our own end. I thought we did a good job. But, you know obviously there’s always things that you need to clean up. From my end, the guys did a great job of cleaning out lanes, letting me see pucks and when I wasn’t able to control rebounds, they did a great job clearing them, getting out so there weren’t many second chances. We’ve got to stick with that. It’s just one win. We’ve got to go back, see things that we did well and continue to do that, and things that we didn’t do so well we’ve got to work on and get ready for Game 4.”

On the feeling in the room:
“Same feeling if we were up three-nothing or down three-nothing. What we have to do to win the next game is all we’re focused on.”

On whether the ice conditions were particularly poor:
“No, it’s always awful. It was awful today. We’ve got bad ice here. That’s how it goes.”
