February 17 postgame quotes: Campbell, Brodzinski, Privitera - LA Kings Insider

Jack Campbell, on what was going well in front of him:
I think just everything in front of me was going well. We watched a lot of video this week. We had a tough little stretch there. We have a lot of resilient guys in the dressing room and we all dug deep and did what Stutts asked us to do. Just simplified, made better decisions out of our own zone and we did that and then we got pucks deep, we used our speed and our bigger guys and some of our smaller guys were throwing their bodies around and it was just a great win all around.

Campbell, on whether the end result feels different versus other wins:
Honestly, they usually all feel pretty good but tonight definitely felt good. Just because this team’s taken a couple points from us that we weren’t happy about. They’re a very skilled team. They’ve got a lot of really good individual players. They’ve struggled too this year but they always come out and give us a tough game. Definitely feels good to beat them.

Campbell, on what’s the strongest part of the Reign’s game currently:
That’s a good question. I think defensively just coming out of our zone and making smart plays and simple plays. We’ve gotten a boost with Seto coming to the lineup. Some newer guys, young guys coming up too from Manchester. I just think everybody’s doing their part. That’s the biggest thing.

Campbell, on the celebration after Schilling’s ENG and if he knew he got the assist:
I had no idea. I was just happy he scored so we didn’t have to watch video on it so Schills didn’t get ripped on that by Stuttsy. It was just great. We were all excited for him and excited to get the win.

Campbell, on whether he thinks about the current consecutive games streak he’s on:
I don’t really think about it statistically, I just think about it more like what a blessing it is to be able to play this much and what an opportunity. Obviously it’s pretty special for me to be able to play this much. I’m just trying to go one game at a time and if Flinner goes in I know he can get the job done. I’m just trying to do the best I can when my name’s called.

Jonny Brodzinski, on whether this win seemed different compared to recent ones:
It was a weird second period. Felt like the first period had a little bit of flow to it. A lot of penalties. I just felt like we played our game. They had a few chances, a couple of breakdowns on defense but I can’t really say a whole lot about it poorly on our part. I think we played a very sound game tonight.

Brodzinski, on what was working well on the penalty kill:
They have an extremely good power play so that was something that we honed in on pregame was trying to keep them off the scoreboard on the power play. It worked. We sold out there and we’re fortunate to get one on the penalty kill and I think that was probably the biggest goal of the night.

Brodzinski, on Tucson’s hot start to the third period and how the Reign dealt with it:
I’m not even sure. Just trying to get offensive chances. We talked a lot about this morning was sorting it out in the defensive zone, making sure the center has got his guy in the slot. They try to pop stuff in the middle a lot, so I think that was the big thing was trying to lock them down defensively and I think that led to offensive chances tonight too.

Brodzinski, on how good Jack Campbell was in net:
He was amazing. And obviously he got the assist too. Big props to him. He stood on his head again. That’s what we need right now with a lot of bodies down, for him to be on his game.

Brodzinski, on his 20th goal of the season and how far he’s come since his rookie campaign:
Last year everything was going the wrong way right away. A few posts and now stuff’s starting to fall in the net. Just gonna try and keep riding this one out. But credit to the linemates that I’ve been having here lately. Hensick finding me there in the middle and kind of had a partial breakaway. These last few games, back-door tap-in by him again. So it’s just a few lucky bounces but a few good goals by linemates.

Alexx Privitera, on what went well on the penalty kill:
It’s just commit to block shots and pick up sticks, be on their sticks. We went over a lot of film against these guys. They’ve been good on their power play recently and it was just something we wanted to focus on before the game.

Privitera, on what it’s been like for him and other player from Manchester to make an impact:
It’s obviously nice to try and contribute. You want to come up here and contribute, that’s our job. We’ve got a few guys here from Manchester now so it’s kind of nice to see us contribute, get a couple wins here.

Privitera, on whether this win feels like a staple one:
Yeah, absolutely. We’re just trying to get the train rolling here again. That’s two in a row. We’ve got another important one coming up tomorrow night and that’s where our focus is, on San Jose.

Privitera, on Jack Campbell’s play tonight:
Tonight? How about every night? That kid’s a rock back there. Saving pucks, helping us break the puck out. That kid, you can’t say enough about him. Huge help for us.
