Blake Lizotte
On a gritty and gutsy win

I think our last two games, Tampa was a little closer to playoffs and then tonight I think was even a half-step forward in terms of intensity and I love how our group responded to that intensity. I think that we’re trending in the right direction for this time of year.
On the importance of net play tonight with how the Kings worked at both ends
I think we have some guys who have been in this league a long time and they know what it’s like to play this time of year and deep into the playoffs. That’s where games are won, not lot of space out there, there’s not a lot of free roaming plays, so I think where you win and lose games is in the crease and around the net. You don’t always get the bounces, tonight my goal had 9, 10 12 bounces, whatever it was, before it went in. Vancouver’s a good team, but I think for sure we were we were good in front of our own.
On the play of his linemate, Trevor Lewis, in tonight’s win
I think Lewis, if there was a statistic of unrecognized points for a team, he would be at the top of the NHL, he does so many things that help us to win every night.
On if it almost feels like “three seasons” with how things have gone for the Kings this year
Yeah, it almost feels like a rebirth. You kind of start from zero and I think that was obviously good for our team, we needed that, and management saw that, and I think Jimmy and Smitty have come in and done a great job of instilling how we want to play differently than before. I think it’s kind of paying dividends now, we’re starting fully grasp how they want us to play, from guy number 1 all the way up to 23. I think when we’re playing the way we want to play, we’re a tough team to beat.

Jim Hiller
On his takeaways from tonight’s victory

I thought the first period we were just okay, we started good and then they took it over. Second period, I thought we got better and third period I thought was our best period. Until they got the goal on the empty net, I thought we handled it pretty well, we played a really strong period, didn’t give them much at all. It got a little hairy there at the end, but a couple saves by Talbs and guys blocked some shots, got it done. It’s a good team, so we’re proud to beat them.
On winning a physical game tonight on the road
I thought it was physical, I don’t know if it showed that up that way for you guys, but it was a very physical game. They pinch the walls, really physical on our wingers coming down the walls, so we had to not necessarily stand up to them, but stand in there and take some of that punishment to try and get the pucks out. We did that, so it’s a gutsy effort as far as that’s concerned from a physical perspective.
On if tonight had a playoff feel to it
It did, we talked about after the Tampa game, it felt a lot like that, this felt up a level from that game but the same style. There just wasn’t a lot of room, wasn’t a lot of chances. Great to see Lewie and Liz out there, scoring what was a really big goal for us there at the end of the second.
On if he felt the Canucks’ bigger names getting “frustrated” in tonight’s game
I don’t think they were frustrated, I think they understood, like we understood about them, they’re a strong defensive team too, so it’s hard to get chances... players like to score, they like to make good passes, all this kind of stuff and there’s just not a lot of room to do that. I think both teams understood that. It was just a battle, plain and simple. Both teams went out of hard and we got on the right side of it.

Here is the full, updated list of all poll winners - sorry I can't get it all in the main post. There is a 10,000 character limit, and I hit it every single game. I always have to edit the post-game quotes to pare it down, plus every little character I can find that is extraneous.
