from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,
“The intensity is going to be higher and the pace will be a little bit quicker. Fans will be that much more energetic. At the end of the day, though, it’s the same job that I’ve had all year and the past 15 years,” Quick said Tuesday.
“I’ve got to stop the puck, I’ve got to help with breakouts, I’ve got to talk, I’ve got to do everything I’ve learned over the years. That’s all you’re focused on going into the game: what you need to bring to the table individually and as a team collectively. We’ve just got to play our game.”
This will be his third playoff experience, after first-round losses to Vancouver and San Jose. He’s 4-8 with a 3.32 goals-against average and .900 save percentage.
More will be expected of him and the Kings this time, and Quick said he’s better prepared for the intensity.
“When you find yourself in situations, it’s having confidence in yourself and knowing you’ve been there before,” he said. “The only way you could get that feeling is from being in situations like this.”
