Viktor Arvidsson, Drew Doughty & Todd McLellan 2/17 Post Game Quotes

Viktor Arvidsson on the victory on the road, extending the winning streak to three games
I think we started off good. The first period was good, good intensity and we spent a lot of time in their zone. In the second we got away from it a little bit and then starting the third on a five-minute kill can get you out of the rhythm but I think we managed to pull it off and get the win.
Arvidsson on his power-play goal late in the third period to seal the game
The first time, [earlier in the game] I tried to pass it and Gibson kind of laid his blocker down there and blocked the pass, so I figured he would do the same again. So, I took it to the net and tried to go short side high and I managed to put it in.
Arvidsson on having two power plays that are scoring right now
Oh, it’s always good, it’s competitive, I think we have competitive players on both units. So, obviously it’s going good and everybody’s scoring.

Drew Doughty on the win and the overall performance
It’s a big win. We didn’t like our overall performance, the second period was a little bit sloppy, we thought. When you’re outplaying a team that hard in the first period, the tendency is to stay off the gas a little bit and that’s something that we need to fix. We have to be able to play a full 60 minutes.
Doughty on the improvements of the power play and his unit specifically
The power play is a lot better this year, we have a much better plan. Obviously we added Kevin, who is basically a power-play specialist. I’m very happy with how the power play is performing, really happy.
Doughty on the support from Kings fans tonight on the road
Yeah, it seemed more like a home game than an away game, to be honest. When we would score, it looked like three quarters of the barn was standing up. Great support by our fans tonight. It felt really good.

Todd McLellan on making it three consecutive victories coming out of the All-Star Break
I thought it was a tough game to play, a tough game to win. It was competitive, we had to be patient, penalties, special teams situations, losing a starting goaltender, a lot of variables went into the night, but I was happy with the special teams and obviously finding a way to close out the night was important for us
McLellan on balancing the emotions between fighting for your goalie and calming down for the win
At this time of the year, the win is the most important thing, but we want to take care of teammates. I’m sure the Ducks team wants to do that as well, but it’s about winning right now. I thought we controlled our emotions fairly well in that situation. We had an opportunity to regroup, it gave Quickie a chance to get his head ready for the third period. The penalty kill did a pretty good job, I know we got scored on once, but they did a real good job in that situation.
McLellan on the fire that Pheonix Copley showed late in the second period
He’s competitive. It was one of the first things we found out about him when training camp began, every team has their testing regiment that they go through and he wasn’t going to be denied. He was carrying the goalie union if you will and you could see right away he’s really competitive. In practice, he’s competitive, even on drills or situations that don’t necessarily mean a lot for the goaltender, he’s there all the time and wants to make the save. Just a competitive individual.
McLellan on Jonathan Quick coming in and getting the job done to get the victory
There’s probably nobody else we’d rather have going into that situation, a guy that’s played as many games as he has, he’s played in this building many, many times on big nights. He came in unexpectedly and did a really, really good job. I believe he was the winning goaltender tonight, which is great, we needed that for him, he needed that for him. Coaches complimenting both goaltenders, usually that doesn’t happen.
McLellan on Gabe Vilardi’s return and playing him on the fourth line
I think it says a lot about the organization and how they have built it up over the years. We’ve got a lot of competition up front right now, we’ve mentioned that to the players over and over again. Gabe and Arthur, one has 17 and the other has 10 goals and if you want to call that our fourth line, that’s where they’re playing, but they both play significant and key roles on the power play and that power play scored three tonight, so they got the job down there. They’re both coming back from injury, so they need to find their games a little bit, Trevor Moore as well, but at the end of the day, the depth is what should help us down the stretch.

Kinda funny to see a team with 2 players where their dads played for the Kings: Bjugstad & Chychrun.

Anyways:

1 PPG
2 goals in the 2nd
 
Thank you, Susan et al!

It's hard to get one's head around the idea that the Kings may have a 40-goal scorer this year. It's been what... 30 years? In addition, there are 5 other guys who could score over 20. Add in all the points coming from the blue line and one must come to the conclusion that this is a very good team.

GKG!!!
