Williams proud of another strong Game 7 performance

Justin Williams scored in another Game 7. What a shock.

The L.A. Kings veteran forward opened the scoring early in the first period against the Anaheim Ducks in Friday’s decisive match-up in the Western Conference second-round series. The Kings then went on to crush the Ducks by a final score of 6-2 to advance to the Western Conference Final against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Williams is now a perfect 6-0 in Game 7s throughout his Stanley Cup playoff career. He’s also up to 12 points (six goals and six assists) in those six games, having added an assist on L.A.’s sixth goal of the evening.

Talk about coming through when it matters the most.

“The thing I’m most proud of is the 6-0 record in Game 7 and the fact that we’re moving on. At the end of my career, I’ll look at that and be proud of it. But the one I really like right now is the 6-0,” Williams said afterward, as per LA Kings Insider.

“Who knows? I talked earlier that sometimes games end like that. Game 7, there are a lot of nerves and it’s very tense. We channeled those nerves very well to start the game. Capitalized on our chances and we if don’t capitalize on them it’s a different score.”

    If they were as good as they think they are game seven it wouldn’t have went to good luck playing like that against the hawks. They have a complete game and won’t let them run the score like the ducks. The hawks have more than one player that can deliver and a defense that can shut you down.

    Not only are they 6-0 but those jerseys look really-really nice. Not some purple and yellow miasma like rag, but an actually pro designed uniform. I hope you’re paying attention Pittsburgh. It isn’t a Flames jersey but it still looks nice.
