April 20 postgame quotes: Justin Williams

On what needs to change for Game 3:
It obviously stinks sitting here, talking after another lopsided loss, but they did what they set out to do and now it’s response time. We’re going back to our arena. We won the first two in our arena last year and they came back and won the next two in theirs. So we’re looking to repeat that, but we need to start with one.

On whether this is similar to being down 2-0 to St. Louis last year:
I don’t know. Every playoff series and every run for the playoffs is different and it has a different feel. We need to get back. We have one day in between to get ourselves together, regroup, refresh and put this one behind us and take a step in the right direction. Have some push back.

On what changed in the second period:
They had a quite a few chances, actually, in the first period as well, I thought, and Quickie made some great saves. We were able to get up 2-0, but we felt that next goal was extremely important and they were able to get it, we weren’t, and they carried their momentum. Plain and simple, their players beat ours every way tonight.
