On what he said to the team after the loss:
Fly at 11.
On how to shut Patrick Kane down in Game 7:
We’ll do our best. [Reporter: Has he done anything different to be more effective later in the series?] He made two great plays in the third. We made some great ones, too, though.
On the team’s success in Game 7:
It’s just one game. It’s an old line. But it’s the truth. If you could play one game, you’d play it. Doesn’t matter if it’s one or seven.
On whether this Game 7 will be any different than those against Anaheim and San Jose:
Not really. Just a third round and a better opponent.
On Drew Doughty creating offense in the third period:
There were some great plays in the third period by a lot of great players. Kane made a couple. Keith made one. Drew made a couple. You know, their goalie made some big saves.
On adjustments to cut down Chicago’s time and space:
Well, I think both teams were making really good adjustments. I think both teams are competing like hell in those areas. There’s not much of a difference or a gap in these two clubs. It comes down to those great plays at the end. We could have went away after the Smith goal, after the bad goal. We battled back. Both teams did.
On the team’s resilience:
That’s why there’s a Game 7. That’s what you call resilient. [Reporter: Does that make you feel better about the situation?] I don’t have to feel better. I feel pretty good actually.
On “two heavyweights trading blows”:
Yep. Hey, it’s been a great series. Now it comes down to one game. That’s what it’s been.
On why he feels good considering Los Angeles was up 3-1:
Doesn’t matter if it goes 1-1-1-1-1. It’s two really good hockey clubs bordering on the top of the league. To think it wouldn’t be a 7 or a 6 or anything like that, not disappointed in that at all. It’s a negative way to look at it if you want to ask that question, actually.
On why home ice hasn’t been a huge factor in the playoffs for Los Angeles:
I think I said I’d like to play Game 7 at home always.
