“Corners come up quick. You round the net and feel like you’re in the corner. It’s just a rounded building. There’s the same surface, but the configuration here for me makes it a different feel. A different feel for the on-ice players, a different feel for the coaches, so things happen a lot quicker in this building and you’ve just got to be ready for it.”
“I’ve said that for years in this building. It’s an interesting building. Some of the buildings are more rectangular in the corners, the rinks, and these are rounded….They round off quick. Both teams are built for this type of surface, so it should be a good game here.”
-Ken Hitchcock, coach of the St. Louis Blues on the Staple Center. More from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider.
