Jonathan Quick wasn’t buying into the notion it was difficult for the U.S. to play today’s bronze medal game after a tough semifinal loss to Canada.
“It shouldn’t be too hard,” he said, per PHT’s Jason Brough. “We do that all year long. We’re professionals. We play back-to-backs all year long.
“There’s no reason we show up and not piss a drop.”
Quick, brilliant against the Canadians on Friday in stopping 36 of 37 shots, was hung out to dry on a number of occasions against the Finns. Two goals in the third period came on the power play and the Americans failed to give their goalie any run support over the final two games of the tournament, going scoreless after racking up 20 goals in their first four contests.
Needless to say, Quick wasn’t happy — though he made it clear he wasn’t happy with his own effort, either.
“My job is to stop the puck, and I didn’t do that very well,” he said. “Team effort. We weren’t good.”
