Quick, King reflect on last night's win - LA Kings Insider

Jonathan Quick, on last night’s win:
I thought we played a good game. We found ourselves down one late in the game and we were able to find a way to get a couple.

Quick, on Robyn Regehr’s performance against Chicago:
He played his game, that’s the way he plays. He’s a big, strong, physical guy. He keeps it simple in his own end. [He] tries not to make many misstates, which he doesn’t. You see he steps up, makes a physical play to turn the puck over. We end up getting a scoring chance out of it.

Quick, on any added emotion when playing against Chicago:
It’s pretty much the same. When we do play Chicago, I feel it’s a bit quicker of a pace. Whether that’s just playing against them or if that’s us playing each other, they’re a great team. We’ve proven that we’re a great team over the past few years. You get two top teams going at it, it’s the kind of game you’re usually going to get.

Dwight King, on his line’s performance last night:
We were skating. Obviously Carts and Tyler are quick and great with the puck. When they’re moving their feet, they’re hard to defend. I think that was a big part of the success.

King, on Robyn Regehr’s hit to set up Tyler Toffoli’s game-tying goal:
That was probably the big play of everything. It made everything kind of happen. From there, it was just two short passes and then Tyler making a good shot.

King, on the focus against Chicago:
I think just our focus and our intensity was a little bit higher than it has been. When we play like that, obviously, we can win big games like we did.

King, on how the Kings can build off of the win:
That’s obviously the thing about sports, is every day you have to find a way to regenerate something that you used in the past. I think for our group, we’ll lean on a little bit of experience and just pushing each other as a unit to bring their best. We’re going to need it to make a push for playoffs.
