Peter Laviolette, on battling back after losing the lead:
Well they scored in the first shift and had a breakdown. The second one was the second one and then they scored a power play goal. I mean it is what it is. I don’t think we stopped playing but they were able to tie it up. I liked the fact that in a situation like that we fought back and continued to push and won it in overtime.
Laviolette, on Juuse being able to recover after letting the second goal in:
I thought he played very well. If you think about what he did, on the first goal, he has no chance, the second goal, that’s a learning curve. You’ve got to be a little more patient on the rims. And the last one’s a one-timer on the power play. Other than that, I mean he made save after save, big save, got us to a point where it was 3-0. When it was 3-3, made a save or two that allowed us the opportunity to fight for another point. So I thought he played great.
Laviolette, on playing against west coast teams back-to-back:
It was good. I mean it’s never easy coming out here. The game are always heavy, they’re physical. They were tonight again. But I thought our guys did a good job answering that. It’s always a little more difficult playing back-to-back. It’s not an excuse, it just is what it is. The best games are when you’re fresh and ready to play. So I’ve got to give our guys a lot of credit because once it really came down to the chips being on the line that’s when we dug in the most and were able to get that last goal and get the extra point.
Ryan Johansen, on the team’s mentality after the Kings tied it up:
Yeah, you know good teams have got to stay composed and they were a great team and we had our backs against the wall for a little bit there. And Juuse made a couple unbelievable saves there. They were really testing us and we were able to weather the storm a little bit and find a way to get it done in overtime. We needed a big play and Arvie (Victor Arvidsson) did that for us.
Johansen, on the road trip overall:
We’ve played some good hockey on this trip. There’s always room for improvement and some things we’ll look at, but for the most part we’re going to be smiling tonight.
Roman Josi, on giving up the 3-0 lead:
Well, I mean it happens. I think obviously they were going to have a push and they did. They’re a good team. They’re playing really well this season. You never want to give up three goals, but it happens and we had to stay positive. And I thought we played really well after the third and they tied it and yeah, we got the win in overtime.
Josi, on playing in overtime:
Well, I think we did a good job tonight on jumping loose pucks and being aggressive. I think 3-on-3 you’ve got to attack the game. You’ve got to want that goal. You can’t just sit back and I think we did a pretty good job of that tonight.
Josi, on what happened in the third period:
Yeah, they played pretty well. We knew they were going to have a push. Obviously had a pretty good start, not the start we wanted them, they score on the first shift and after that they just kept coming. I mean they’re a good team. They’ve got a lot of power. They bring a lot of shots to the net and they went in there.
Josi, on the takeaway:
Yeah, definitely more pleased that we won. I think at the end of the day it’s two points and I thought we played a pretty good game up until the third, but like I said we got two points and at the end of the day that’s what we came here for.
