There’s a quality assortment of Kings audio on the radio and the internet today, beginning with Nick Nickson’s appearance on Hockey This Morning:
Manchester color commentator Chris Ryan also recorded some audio from Monarchs alums Jake Muzzin, Trevor Lewis and Tanner Pearson:
Yesterday, Bob Miller was a guest on Hockey This Morning. Any time there’s an opportunity to listen to Bob, you take that opportunity. Here, he recaps Game 3, discusses Jonathan Quick and analyzes the vote for a hypothetical Conn Smythe Trophy. It’s great to hear Bob’s voice:
BONUS. Some Trevor Lewis quotes that didn’t make it into any stories today:
On the challenge of maintaining a game-day routine before a potential Cup-clinching game:
You try not to think about it. We’ve got to come out and play like we’re down 0-3 instead of up 3-0. We know they’re going to be desperate tonight, so we have to match their desperation level and come out and play our hockey.
On the penalty kill:
I think we’ve got a lot of guys that can kill penalties on this team and it helps keeping everybody fresh out there. I think it starts with the faceoff. Trying to go in there kill about 10 seconds getting the clear. You can keep forcing them on the outside, force them to dump pucks and then have good recovery. Hopefully we keep going.
On whether he has enjoyed writing for NHL.com:
Yeah, it’s pretty fun. I’ve never really done it, so it’s alright. It’s good to go back and kind of share what we go through on a game day or whatever and thoughts after a game. It’s been fun.
On whether the grinding mentality is especially important in tonight’s game:
I think we’re a better team when we have four lines and six D and everyone is going and everyone is into the game. We have to make sure everyone is into it tonight and everyone is ready to go.
