June 4 postgame quotes: Tyler Toffoli

On Jeff Carter:
“The last two games he’s been playing incredible. You can see how good of a skater he is, and how good of vision he has. I’m just lucky to be playing with him right now. I’m just trying to help him out.”

On the “extra physicality” in Game 3:
“I just think it’s another game. It’s playoff hockey. It’s no real surprise.”

On the Slava Voynov broken stick goal serving as a break for the team:
“Obviously, that’s a good break. I think there were a couple guys in front, and Crawford didn’t see it. Any goal is a good goal in the playoffs here.”

On Justin Williams’ performance:
“He’s been incredible for us all playoffs long. Whenever we need a big goal, he’s always there to step up. I mean, you can’t say enough great things about the way he’s playing right now and how good of a leader he is.”

On his communication with Darryl Sutter:
“The more he’s not really talking to you, I think you’re fine. I mean, if I’m playing, I’m playing a lot of minutes. That speaks big vvolumes, and you’ve just got to keep it simple with the way you’re playing, and it’s playoff hockey. Like I’ve said before, anybody would kill to be in the position I’m in, and whenever I’m told to go out there and play, I’m just going.”

On his energy level:
“It’s incredible. It’s playoff hockey. It’s the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It’s incredible. I think every night my adrenaline gets higher and higher, and it’s been an incredible experience.”

On what he has learned about National Hockey League goaltenders:
“They’re so quick. They make huge saves and they never give up on the puck, so I think you have to have a lot of traffic in front of the goalie, especially Crawford. He’s a really good goalie, and you’ve just got to keep putting pucks on net.”

On what the difference was in Game 3 compared to previous games in the series:
“I just think playing harder, getting pucks deep and just finishing our checks. I think we had a good game and we were physical all night long and we’ve just got to keep doing that.”
