Kings player quotes

I’ll put these all on one post, for the sake of brevity. From Dustin Brown, Anze Kopitar and Matt Greene…

DUSTIN BROWN
“It’s one of those plays where it went right in the corner off Dewey’s stick. That was a huge two points that got away from us. That’s all that really matters at this point, points, whether we’re playing good or bad. We found ways to win a couple weeks ago, and we need to find ways to win now.”

MATT GREENE
“It was just a tough break right there (on the game-winning goal.) We have to eliminate little mistakes throughout the ice. We were making mistakes on every one of their goals. We just need to tighten up a bit and we’ll be fine. We came out with a lot of urgency in the third. We are finally getting back to playing the hockey that got us success. It’s disappointing to come back in a game like that and then lose it but, hopefully we can carry our momentum into our next game at Calgary.”

ANZE KOPITAR
“I thought we were moving the puck a little bit better than we did in Phoenix, but we still have a couple levels left in us. We generated some chances. We had pretty good offense at times, but I think we just have a bit of rustiness which made the difference in the game. I am confident we are going to get our game back on track. We had two and a half minutes to possibly get another goal, but we just fell short. After such a huge goal, we can’t have defensive breakdowns like that. They were boxing out pretty well and you just have to battle through it.”
