    Trevor Moore
    On how the group handled the momentum swings in the Game 1 win

    Yeah, I thought we did a good job, how we have all year, leaning on our leadership. We know those guys are going to have pushes, they have two of the best players in the world, itís going to be that way and theyíre going to have their moments but I thought Quickie made huge saves when we needed them. We did a good job.
    On what was said in the room between the second and third periods
    Like I said, I think the leaders who have been here before, and Todd, came in and said hey, if we told you 3-3 coming into today, in a tough road building, we would have taken that. I think that we were calm and did what we needed to do to execute.
    On the butterflies playing his first playoff game in a few years

    Nervous energy, youíre more excited than anything, but youíre just anxious to get out there. You just want to get it started and get that first shift under your belt. Thatís the way you do it for sure.
    On playing against Edmontonís top players more often than not
    Itís an exciting opportunity. Itís going to be tough, like I said, those guys are amazing hockey players. Just being able to be called on for that job, itís a big task, but itís definitely an honor.
    On handling the outside noise painting the Kings as an underdog in this series
    We donít care, we just kind of focus on what weíre doing and we believe in our group. We believe in our leadership, our coaching and everything that we do.

    Todd McLellan
    On his favorite things from the Game 1 victory

    I thought we did the things that we needed to do, for the most part. Weíve used the word identity a lot during the year and we played to that again. Itís what gives us a chance. We checked fairly well, made some mistakes, went to the penalty box a little bit too much for anybodyís liking, especially against that type of power play, but for the most part we were able to check. We got excellent goaltending, as we expected, and weíre opportunistic. If anybodyís been watching us for the last 3-4 months, as some of you have, thatís how we play. We played in our skin, we played to our identity and we were just a carbon copy of how weíve done it.
    On seeing players step into new roles tonight and produce
    Iíve been with teams where the injury thing at this time of the year would really throw you for a loop. You lose Viktor Arvidsson, weíre not loaded with 20-goal scorers and heís a critical offensive and defensive piece to our team, a big part of that line. Weíve been through this so much this season, I really thought it was just another day at the office for us. Somebody falls out of the lineup and somebody steps in and we try to get it done. I think that the resiliency has come through that from Game 5 when we lost Drew to Game 6 when we lost Walks. We havenít played with our whole lineup all season and weíve been able to find ways.
    On getting the matchups against McDavid and Draisaitl
    Itís tougher, but letís face it, for 75 percent of the game 29 or 97 and 24 or 11 are on the ice. The other 25 percent is unpredictable for both Jay and myself. It will be that way in LA and it will be that way in Edmonton, thatís why itís such a great game, you donít get to have everything you want. Others have to find a way to get the job done, both offensively and defensively, on our team and I can imagine Jay is probably saying the same thing. I canít speak for him, but thatís just the way the game goes. Youíre never going to get everything you want, but we have trained the players to deal with those situations and they should be able to handle them.
    On Danault not needing to sacrifice offense tonight for defense
    In my opinion, my mind, offense is a big part of his defending now. Itís not just jump on the ice and sit back, when youíre attacking the other teamís goaltender, itís the best defense you can have. Itís honorable for him to say that, but we want him to keep pushing offensively, because that does help the defensive game.
    On the group of players who played their first playoff game tonight
    Whatís that saying about the duck, he looks calm above the water, but underneath the legs are just flapping away. Iím sure there was some of that, but our guys did a good job of starting well. The veterans, the first two lines out that went out to start the game set the tone and settled everybody down. Now, the kids come out, they start to play on the third and fourth lines, they felt a little more comfortable. Leadership was real important, opportunity to play in these games is exactly what we wanted. Weíve talked about this ad nauseum already, about gaining experience as we go for that up and coming group. Theyíre getting it. Maybe they donít get 15 minutes a night, but theyíre involved in everything that happens on the bench, on the ice, in the game. Thatís valuable.

    Thank you, Susan et al!

    If the Kings are fortunate enough to win tonight, it will be a fun weekend when our tour rolls into the Saddledome on Saturday and Rogers Place on Sunday. Wish I had packed a Kings jersey for this Canada run.

    GKG!!!

    It appears to be the usual tight-lip policy for the postseason.

    So is Arvy a "personal issue" or injury? Because I've heard both. Hoven says it is more likely that Arvy is back for Game 3 rather than Game 2, which sounds more like an injury, especially since he was apparently on the trip with the team.

    Nickson specifically said injury. The "personal issues" thing was a tweet that seemed to gain some traction but I don't put much stock in that. Of course, an injury is a personal issue from a certain point of view on this May The Fourth.... I'll see myself out.

    So I'm trying to keep the star wars theme but all my "ideas" are just coming across as dad jokes. And my pops was "A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" guy, so...homage adjacent.


    Tonight I'll be watching the squad while (han) Solo drinking (Alec) Guinness and using my Jedi mind tricks to keep the oilers shooting like stormtroopers.
