Smyth postgame quotes

Ryan Smyth’s postgame thoughts…

(on the win…)
SMYTH: “It was nice. Quickie held us in there and gave us a chance. We sure weren’t ready, like we were against Toronto, but it’s a team game and Quickie pulled us through and Greenie got us an early lead. We capitalized on the power play, which is big in today’s game, and overall, after that we started to carry the momentum.”

(on Kopitar reaching the 100-goal level…)
SMYTH: “He’s an elite player, and for him to grab a hold of 100 goals is awesome. And counting. It’s nice to see. Obviously he works hard, not only offensively but defensively, and he’s a well-rounded hockey player.”

(on the winning streak…)
SMYTH: “We know how important it is, playing on the road, and obviously how the standings are. It’s important to keep climbing. We’re playing disciplined and we’re playing with structure, and I think that’s leading to wins. We’ve just got to make sure we can continue that.”
