Kopitar postgame quotes

Anze Kopitar’s postgame thoughts…

(on the 4-0 road trip…)
KOPITAR: “It feels great. I think we learned from the last long road trip, when we went to Long Island and everybody was kind of ready to go home. It’s not like tonight we’re not ready to go home, but I think the approach was totally different than Long Island. Obviously to go 4-0 right now, it doesn’t happen very often. We approach it just like playoffs. It’s the playoffs for us. The playoffs are at stake, and you’ve got to play right to your potential every night. I think that’s what we showed, throughout these four games.”

(on Bernier being hard to beat in Nashville…)
KOPITAR: “Apparently, yeah. If he keeps going in this building like that, I think we will be in good shape.”

(on the strong second period, after a back-and-forth first…)
KOPITAR: “They always come out strong in this building. I thought we had a couple really good shifts in the first, and we obviously scored a goal, and then they came back. In the second, usually that’s where the game breaks. I thought we’ve had a couple good, solid second periods in a row now. Even in Dallas, I thought we really took it to them. It was just a good effort from everybody.”
