Randy Jones postgame quotes

Randy Jones’ thoughts after his first game with the Kings, in which he scored the game-winning goal and had an assist…

(on his first game with the Kings…)
JONES: “I felt pretty comfortable out there, but the most important thing is getting the two points. We knew they were struggling and we knew they would be coming with all force, so I thought we played pretty solid, but the most important thing was getting the two points.”

(on the relief after losing the two-goal lead…)
JONES: “It’s unfortunate, when you’re up two you want to make sure you maintain that lead, especially in the third period. But they were able to get one early and we stuck with it and played our game and it worked out in the end.”

(on what he read on the play that led to his goal…)
JONES: “I was just trying to get to the net there and give Willie an outlet pass. The guy has got great vision. He was able to feed it over to me and I just wanted to bang it in.”

(on having early chemistry with his new teammates…)
JONES: “Well, when you get to this level, it’s professional hockey. We’re professionals here, and I’ve been practicing with these guys for two weeks. It’s been a very easy adjustment for me. These guys have been more than welcoming to me, to help ease the situation a little bit. It’s been great, and it was fun out there, but the most important thing is, we got the win.”
