Peter Budaj, on what the Kings did well to help him get the shutout:
Well I definitely think this is a tough building, I think it's a hard game to play in. This is a building where the home team is building off the momentum from the building and I think the guys did a great job. Especially on the P... Read More
On relying on goals from four different lines and the team-wide effort:
