Sorry to get this up so late. Here’s the transcript of the Q&A from Thursday’s practice day with Ryan Kesler, Kevin Bieksa and Dan Hamhuis
DAN HAMHUIS: It’s something we thought we could be better at. I think so far we’ve done a good job.
Q. What did you think of Kevin’s game last night?
DAN HAMHUIS: I thought it was awesome. He’s been playing really well for us all season. Stepped it up all playoffs. Last night, really seeing some results of the work he’s been putting in. But he’s been playing like that the whole time.
From the pre-series Q&A with Canucks players Ryan Kesler, Dan Hamhuis, Christian Ehrhoff, Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin. Below is the complete transcript.
Q. You talk about how you know that there’s pressure, you’ve mentioned it before. It’s almost a situation where you seem to really like it. How much different is the pressure in the third round compared to the second round to the regular season?
HENRIK SEDIN: Not a whole lot different. It’s never going to change. It’s always going to be the same. Either you like it and you enjoy playing under pressure or you’re moving out of there. That’s the way it is. We really enjoy playing where people care. There’s a lot of attention on the team, so that’s not a problem for us.
DANIEL SEDIN: I agree. You either embrace it, or like Henrik said, you choose not to play in a Canadian city or in the NHL. You have to like playing under pressure. Things go bad, things go good, you have to stay the same. That’s the number one thing.
