Quick postgame quotes

Jonathan Quick’s postgame thoughts…

(on making the U.S. Olympic team…)
QUICK: “I grew up idolizing Mike Richter, and he had a few international moments. He was one of the best in the league when he played, so growing up you want to be like him. It’s truly a great honor to play for your country, especially in an event like that. Just to be a part of it is an unbelievable feeling. With all that said, we still have a month and a half here with the Kings, and we have to win games if we want to stay in this playoff hunt. We have a long way to go.”

(on keeping Washington’s offense under wraps…)
QUICK: “Our penalty kill, I think you have to start with them. They were great all night. We did a great job of keeping the puck off Ovechkin’s stick. He loves those one-timers, and I don’t think he had too many of those. I think, with the 4-on-5 unit we had going, we built momentum off that. Zeus had a great goal there, shorthanded, and we did a great job there at the end, stopping them from tying it up.”

(on his ability to track the puck in traffic…)
QUICK: “I don’t know if I’d say that. I think I had two saves there, where I didn’t see the puck. I was extemely fortunate that the puck hit me. Sometimes you have to be lucky to be good. We’ll take the win and move on to San Jose on Monday.”
