January 13 morning skate quotes: Vancouver

Tom Sestito, on facing Jonathan Quick:
I think any goalie you play in this league is good. You have to take their eyes away and I don’t think many goalies like getting rubbed up against and interfered with. It’s between the lines here. We have to do it, not take penalties, but make sure we’re getting in their way.

Sestito, on Los Angeles driving toward the net:
I think we see it. We’re seeing it more often, so we definitely have to get to their goalie and make them feel the same way we’re feeling. I think we have to do a better job clearing them out and we’ve talked about that and we’ll work on it.

Alexander Edler, on coming back from injury:
It’s just that I haven’t played a game for a while. That’s it. So, I have to make sure that I’m really playing hard and keeping it simple and make sure I do a good job. [Reporter: Is it more timing or fitness at this point?] I mean, timing is a big thing. I think it’s just – mentally you’ve got to make sure you’re ready. It’s your first game, you just want to play hard and keep it simple.

Edler, on if he will have to be physical immediately against Los Angeles:
Yeah, I mean, right into it. I think that’s good. That’s the D-men against this team, you know you’re going to get hit. I’m looking forward to getting out there and battle.

Edler, on being physical:
I have to be physical. That’s one of the things in my game that needs to be there for me to be able to be successful.
