Willie Desjardins, on Canucks’ overall play:
I thought we played good, I thought the first two were real good periods for us. You know, in the third we were good too they just had some power plays and [we] gave up some chances there but I thought overall we played good.
Desjardins, on Miller’s not-so-busy night:
It’s not busy because he’s not giving up any rebounds. If we was giving up rebounds it would be a lot busier. He’s just handling everything so clean so that makes a difference.
Desjardins, on SoCal wins:
We could have lost both of games as well. It’s not like we dominated. Both teams were real good teams. They were tough games. We’re happy with the win but it’s nothing we’re taking for granted.
Ryan Miller, on team’s defensive performance:
That was pretty impressive. I thought we did a nice job of getting above them and when they got into our zone I thought we were a group, we worked together. There were some big blocks and we turned the puck around pretty quick on some of their zone time so it was good to see. We played the right kind of game, we got pucks deep against them and waited for our opportunities and the guys did a nice job getting pucks to the net in the second period there.
Miller, on his mindset when not seeing much action:
Majority of those guys have won two Stanley Cups so you know they have the mental game to kind of turn it on, so you just stay ready. And for me though, watching our guys set up plays the right way, supporting each other, it was nice to see.
Adam Cracknell, on Canucks’ hot start to season:
From the start we believed that we were a good team. Coming out here and playing Anaheim and LA very well, strong teams. We needed everybody, and that’s what we got from these last two games. It’s going to take a team effort for us to keep winning games like this.
