On whether the Kings are “finding ways to win”:
Yeah, I’d say that. We’ve played a lot of different types of teams and different things going on, so we get some different guys in the lineup.
On Marian Gaborik’s return to the lineup:
I thought he got better as the game went on. I think it’s going to take some time, though. It’s nine weeks. It’s just going to take some time with him. The key is you’ve got to get the game conditioning and the pace and all those things – execution. I’m sure he’ll tell you the same thing.
On Peter Budaj’s 20th consecutive appearance, and whether they’ll keep riding him:
We have a light schedule right now. Other than the back-to-back this week, we don’t play that many games.
On the four-on-three power play leading to an overtime goal:
We’ve had [those] four-on-threes probably more in the last month than you probably would have in a whole season to carry over from the third into overtime. We look at it as still a power play goal. We’ve done that about four times now where we’ve scored right after. Yeah, obviously it’s a big goal. It’s a good shot by Jeff. It’s a pretty good four guys to be out there.
On Alec Martinez having a good game:
Marty’s really solid again. We had a really good first period as a team. I don’t think it was an individual thing. I think it was a little bit of adversity. We had a goal taken away, and we had the two power plays, and other than the end of the second one, we didn’t get much on ‘em, and then they scored with a deflection. It reminded me of one of those other games where you don’t give up a scoring chance for basically the whole period and they get a deflection over his shoulder. You’ve got to reset and come back in a hurry. It’s good our players were able to do that.
On whether he’s surprised by Alec Martinez’s productivity:
You know, Jon asked about that yesterday, the question about his productivity. Well, the last championship this team won, he won a Game 7 in Chicago and an overtime goal against the Rangers, so that’s sort of I don’t know why it’s all of a sudden about Marty. I mean, he’s been a pretty productive guy for us.
