    Desjardins, Kopitar, Quick 1/5 Postgame Quotes

    Read more quotes and articles at Jon Rosen's Blog here


    Willie Desjardins, on whether this was the “best top-to-bottom” performance since his arrival:
    
It was a good performance. I thought our first period was good. I thought our penalty kill was good, as well. It was good to see some guys reach some milestones. Those are big achievements – 300 goals and 300 wins are big and hard to get in this league, so it was good to see that. Brownie, too – his longevity. He’s been a good player for us.
    Desjardins, on the team’s efforts to limit Connor McDavid through the first three meetings:
    Well, I think it is a team. He’s a really hard guy to hold down. I think it starts with Quickie with the big saves. I think as a group we did a pretty good job. Like, we’ve been able to keep him to the outside, but he’s just an explosive player and he can capitalize at any time.
    Desjardins, on what he liked about the team’s first period start and scoring:
    It’s funny, we thought even against Tampa Bay, I thought our start was good. Our first six minutes were really good. We didn’t score, but we had three or four chances. Vegas, we had a good start too, but just didn’t capitalize. Tonight they went in for us. The third one was a big one. They were starting to pinch, and Carter turned that one – it was a big goal. Cliffy was out, he came back in taking that first one to the net. We had good performances all around, but we have had pretty good starts.
    Desjardins, on Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli’s performances:
    Yeah, the year probably hasn’t gone quite like they wanted it, but they’ve been scoring of late. They’ve been getting a little bit more and more looks, so it’s good. It’s good for us as a group.

    Anze Kopitar, on how it feels to have scored his 300th goal:
    You know, it feels pretty good. I was hoping it was going to come a little earlier than that, but hey, it’s here and I’m pretty proud of that.
    Kopitar, on whether tonight was one of the team’s best performances of the season:
    
Yeah, I mean it’s got to be up there. I think obviously after the last two games we knew that we’ve got to stop the bleeding again and stop it quick, so I thought our first period today was intense, with purpose, and it showed on the scoreboard essentially.
    Kopitar, on him and Quick reaching milestones on the same night:
    Actually, I didn’t realize it until the very end when the trainers told me to go grab the puck. But yeah, it’s special. It’s great for Quickie obviously, and in my mind he’s the best goalie in the world, and it’s very comforting to have him back there and a privilege to play in front of him.
    Kopitar, on the team trying to play better in front of Quick on the power play tonight:
    Anytime you take penalties, and especially five-on-three, it can get ugly in a hurry just like it did the last game. Tonight we took some penalties, but we were able to kill them off and help him out in that regard.
    Kopitar, on whether he voluntarily surrendered a picture of himself as a young man in a swimsuit for the 90’s flashback on the jumbotron:
    Yeah, I did. That was probably the last time I had a six pack. [Reporter: Any of the guys giving you grief about that?] Well, that was the first time they saw it, and quite frankly my second time seeing it, so I’m sure it’s going to be all over social media eventually. [Reporter: If it isn’t already, right?] I’m sure it is.

    Jonathan Quick, on his 300th win:
    I mean, obviously first and foremost we got two points against a division team and a team we’re chasing in the standings, so we were able to get that tonight. And as far as 300 wins, it’s just as a group of guys I’m lucky enough to play with for the last eleven years or whatever it is, it’s been awhile, and hopefully we keep going. You know, we want to win some more games and for Kopi that was awesome. Was it 300 goals? That’s what it was? Yeah, he’s more of a play-maker than a goal-scorer, so 300 goals, that’s a lot, so that’s impressive and I’m happy for him.
    Quick, on what he liked from the team tonight:
    I mean, 97 over there, we were able to limit his opportunities. He’s pretty amazing, so to limit his opportunities and that line in general and just the way we played through the neutral zone and into our zone, and it was a great, great game. But like I said earlier, this is two points and now we move on. We’ve got another game, we go to San Jose, so there’s another division game, another team we’re chasing. Got to get ready for that game now.
    Quick, on whether there were any equipment issues after taking a puck to the head:
    We’ve got a great equipment staff so they were able to get a new cage on, so next whistle I had my helmet ready to go.
    Quick, on him and Kopitar both reaching milestones tonight:
    Yeah, no, we’ve obviously been through a lot, ups and downs, so at the end of the day, I’m sure you could ask him if he felt the same way, but it’s just we were able to win a game tonight and we’re just trying to win another one in a couple of days here, so that’s the approach.
    Quick, on whether the accolades and milestones resonate at all for him:
    I mean it’s tough to kind of look at in the moment. In the moment you’re trying to get back towards the playoffs here, so that’s all the focus is. Obviously all that extra stuff is cool and all, but at the end of the day it doesn’t mean much unless you’re playing for the Cup and that’s what we want to do.

    12 PIMs. And I hope NBCSN shows replays on their app or else I won’t be able to watch the game.

    Go Kings Go!
