Kopitar postgame quotes (Feb. 28) - LA Kings Insider

Anze Kopitar’s postgame thoughts…

(on getting four goals after last night’s frustration…)
KOPITAR: “It’s funny how that works. Last night, we even had more chances to score more goals than we did tonight. It was a big game for us tonight. Obviously to split these games on the road is huge, and now we’ve got to build on this. We scored four goals and now we’ve got to continue improving and continue scoring. That’s just the bottom line.’’

(on the strong first period…)
KOPITAR: “They’re a team that, if they get off to a good start, with a couple goals and a lead, it’s tough to play against them, because then they can pack it in pretty good, and it’s hard to penetrate and break them down. We just wanted to jump on them as much as we could. We’ve just got to keep going, and worry about us, and I thought we did that really good in the first period, and we just continued on going.’’

(on holding the lead…)

KOPITAR: “They got some chances, but that’s just the way it is. They have good players and they’re going to make plays. Jo [Jonathan Bernier] was there for us to stop them.’’
