The Los Angeles Kings won 4:3 against the San Jose Sharks. Quinton Byfield helped the team with his goal and assist. "'Cops' has been unbelievable in his couple games here," Byfield said, as quoted by nhl.com. "We trust him a lot.
It allows you to make a couple more offensive plays, just to know you've got a guy like that back there. James Reimer spoke about his impressions after the match. "I thought we played real decent, good enough to win," Reimer said.
"Once again, it comes down to a one-goal game. … It's just a matter of trying to get over that hump." Los Angeles coach Todd McLellan is not satisfied with certain moments during the match. "Well, it wasn't our finest game, honestly,"-Todd McLellan said.
"I didn't think that we had the details or the commitment to winning that was needed. … There were some areas of the game, I thought we cheated it a little bit, and we clearly need to have a practice or two, which we will get, but when you're not playing your best, it's nice to find a way to win."
Quinn and his reaction
San Jose coach David Quinn is proud of his team that did not give up.
"This is not easy, the season we've gone through,"-David Quinn said. "There's a lot of level of frustration because we feel like we've played better, but our record is what it is. I'm just proud of the way we competed and didn't give up.
Even at 4-2, we kept playing and had chances to tie." Nick Bonino is frustrated that the team is doing their best, but the results are lacking. "We're there every game and just can't get wins," Bonino said. "It's frustrating for everyone.
We're trying everything in practice and video, competing, and it's just not going our way right now."
