Sean Walker (video), Viktor Arvidsson, & Todd McLellan 4/4 Post Game Quotes

Watch Sean Walker’s Post Game Interview Here

Viktor Arvidsson on if he felt tonight’s game was similar to the one in Edmonton
I’m not sure, they had the puck a lot and I think we defended well, but it came down to a power-play goal, that’s what it came down to.
Arvidsson on if he feels there’s anything, offensively, that’s lacking as a group, minus the finishing
I think we should play a little bit more with the puck, but also we have to defend. We’ve had chances to score and we’ve got to bear down on them. It’s a little bit of both, I think.
Arvidsson on if he feels the Kings and Oilers are evenly matched teams
Yeah, I think so. I think we play a little bit differently, both teams, it’s always tight and low scoring. We’ve got to keep an eye on that and try to score more goals than them.

Todd McLellan on any frustration with playing well at 5-on-5 again, but coming up short
I think, one they’re really good hockey club, so we have to acknowledge that and they’ve made some changes that have improved their team. So, frustration is going to be part of the game and we have to channel it a little bit better. Our special teams have to be better against theirs. This game was very reminiscent to the one in Edmonton. We got more to the net in Edmonton and probably had more scoring chances in Edmonton, but the team that scores first has a huge advantage. [In] Edmonton, the first one was near the end of the period, we were actually checking well and then the shorthanded one really cost us, so we lost the special teams in that situation. Here, our penalty kill did a pretty good job, but both of their goals were on clearing attempts that we weren’t successful on. 32 or 35 percent power plays make you pay for that and they did tonight.
McLellan on if the power-play tonight was about a lack of execution or a lack of personnel
It’s not a lack of personnel, we just didn’t execute well.
McLellan on what he feels could be lacking offensively
You know, it’s funny because when teams check hard against us, that’s what it feels like when we’re doing it to the other team. It can be a taste of your own medicine and that’s how we’ve played these last five games, in my opinion, Calgary, Edmonton, Seattle, Vancouver, Edmonton. They’re all tight-checking, there’s not a lot of space and when we’ve been able to win the special teams battle and get that first goal, it makes a world of difference. The games we weren’t successful in, we didn’t do that, so there’s a bit of a recipe there. The frustration part is because guys want to want to win, they’re not just along for the ride. We can do a better job of channeling it and we will.
McLellan on Rasmus Kupari’s game tonight
I thought he had good legs and you need legs to fight through some of the checking. He was skating well, he’s a good skater, so we tried some different things, some different combinations. This was the seventh game in 11 nights for our team. I thought we we were working hard but the gas tanks weren’t quite where they need to be, so it’s something we also have to consider as we move forward, making sure we got the right rest.
McLellan on if these tight games, with guys out, give the team confidence heading into the playoffs
That could be the case. If we meet them in the playoffs, or whoever we play in the playoffs, we could be without those guys and three more, so it really doesn’t matter. It doesn’t. I know you guys want to ask me and I want to tell you, yeah it’d be great, but the lesson we learned last year is it doesn’t matter who’s out, it matters who’s in.
McLellan on the intangibles the group has going right now
I think all of those intangibles that you can’t open up the newspaper and read are at a fairly high point with our team right now. The focus is there, the attention to detail is there quite a bit, the drive to win, the game management, we’re in a good spot. We have to continue to build on that and make sure that we’re keeping our gas tanks full.
