While certainly true got to be ready to get this so this playoff series started -- what do you think the biggest difference is going to be. When you put the Sharks. You know they're good team it -- six times this year we've had serious injuries so it's going to be a hard fought game they have really good offense through a really good lines and you know we're a good defensive team so that's -- our strength whenever you know be able to shut them down and we have about three really -- depends. One for each line and now they are whores really defensively as well also. Our main focus to suspend really good defensive hockey and then not only had our opportunities that we got a very. You talk about. You guys struggled on the power play but the way it is you know plastic puck and culminate penalty spot on five it will really be key here there will be. And I think that's us that the Brazilian who ever really get PK but tell -- Johnson apparently has been struggling now when you get those opportunities though a better idea that the scoring but. Most of the of the playoff hockey is 505 -- it's hard hard fought game for the rest kind of let it tough player out there and I like that you know like special teams that same time but five on fives -- going -- LA kings strength so there weren't difference. That's not building you haven't played the Sharks in the playoffs in your career but. Obviously regular season shark tank all that north that this place is going to be really really loud prepared for that. Oh yeah I'll of that -- I'm Noah right and hit the ice when he gets those from on him all the fans this team and then you -- and so -- that. Playoff hockey -- so much fun you know you look fortunate that from game one of the season and now that we're here we're just really excited and -- know come Thursday were going to be fly and we get out there regardless how loud the building is and that is how -- that limits where we're gonna go you know parents.

The speed as fast doesn't hit more America hasn't made many mistakes it's just. David you made that one mistake in the game that's -- -- and come back to bite you so well. You know playoff hockey is just. The emotions are so much higher you know if you lose that gave it that much closer to being knocked out of playoffs season being over -- -- -- once the season and -- you know the reason a couple of had so. It's. Just a whole different atmosphere in the crowd and on the ice and that's just. So much more fun to play -- my pocket regardless of what happens and -- receivers -- certainly it was pulling for Stanley Cup run. The kings are going in the right direction back to back years making the playoffs and in its culture of winning that's developing your big part of -- you -- be proud. They're up you know believe we knew coming in a lot of us that kings on CN kinda. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's still you know we're we're happy to have been in the playoffs and and now we gotta make steppingstone and play after action Leah meant the first them last year. You know this is gonna win that first round me who sat around and hopefully I always -- -- put them. You know we're just so we're gonna get better here and you -- -- hopefully 33 which easily finish line there. -- the last couple games and had you won one of the two vs the talk -- you could have four but you have so much help out last day but didn't didn't stink. A little bit edgy when you realize that we just won that game we're sitting at home. That we stunk it to have home residences a huge and a McCain some of that along time either so well. Whereas a little disappointed that we didn't even know get a point either of those two games but now that we're here seventh placements -- Jose. We've looked past that we're over those two games in the playoffs start fresh is you were collier -- -- rare and now that we're here we're gonna do everything into it. I'm as -- answers don't care who you play but. I'm very happy that he got San Jose and set apparently Vancouver again. I would love addicted to personally you know them -- a better team so I guess. In that sense it's a little better -- and the traveling a lot better team which is really important playoffs list so -- and a -- -- awfully properly to so. We're happy where we're lucky we got this or is -- Sharks flew travel reasons but you know guys who play it we are happy to be in playoffs and happy to play whoever and worker worker but -- work. You're just looking back to the regular season for that I mean kind of a roller coaster ride full full highs and lows and and also haven't overcome tremendous adversity. But losing -- logical. Yep media at times hasn't mostly went on these issues when winning streaks and a you know that's something not. I guess some parts -- happy about us only yards and some things you gotta clean up the next season is that you know not going through those losing streaks but losing hope you Garcia. Pretty tough for our team to handle but I don't look past that now we know is not going to be back so. We have a lot of guys in the room and great players there and were fully confident that -- with no hope Angela Davis. What's it like for you just. And today just walking around going in the marketable to the fans support out there because I'm sure -- there's right now that you're -- have billboards all over town Sutter get recognized.

Still now its own purposes it is in this like Canada or another but no fancy stuff they recognize this little bit more and you know it's it's exciting to know that -- the kings are becoming. You know more a staple in Thailand you know hopefully continue to get better -- -- -- -- -- -- Going into the series. Fully believe and expect to win. Yeah for sure you know -- we have to run that way we're all confident that we can now when this is so physically team so nothing against them but -- exit in his well and a we're fully confident in those first two games and a you know player listed as we can't come back from back -- the lead in the series and that office tomorrow.
