March 22 postgame quotes: Jeff Carter

On skating on a line with Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson:
It’s great. They’ve been playing really well for us the last couple weeks and obviously that shows in minutes that they’re getting and the power play and the penalty kill and all that. I was just talking with Luc there, we probably could’ve had four goals in the first period. It seemed like they were just a couple inches off. I thought it was real good. Hopefully it keeps going.

On Tanner Pearson getting to the puck:
We all knew that’s what he brings. It’s just a matter of him getting comfortable and kind of fitting into his role I guess. He’s quick, he’s strong on the puck, he makes good plays and we’re starting to see that now.

On playing center:
It is what it is. It’s been three years since I left there… It’s not a big deal really. It’s a big game for both teams. They’ve been playing real well and we’ve started to get things going here. It should be a lot of fun.

On Jonathan Quick’s save on Tomas Fleischmann in the second period:
Nice, very nice. A save of the year candidate probably. [Reporter: Except for the one the previous game.] If he would have stopped the first shot the previous game it would have been save of the year.
