February 18 practice quotes: Kyle Clifford

Though he’s seen time up and down the left side of the Kings lineup this season, judging from the lines at practice earlier today at Rexall Place, Kyle Clifford will be skating alongside Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown during tomorrow’s game in Edmonton. As stated below, his game won’t change.

On his role alongside Kopitar and Brown:
“As far as my game, nothing changes. Just go to the net, play hard, pop pucks out…good on walls, and just try and create space for them.”

On his versatility and ability to slot in as a left wing alongside various lines this season:
“My game never changes, whether it’s on the fourth line, or the second, or whatever it is. It’s just simple and hard.”

On shooting the puck with a greater frequency:
“As a team, we want to generate more offense, and that comes with shooting the puck and getting pucks on net. So everybody’s got to take their part in that, including me.”

On whether the Kings are trending upwards:
“I think we didn’t have the start we wanted yesterday, and as far as the last four games went, I think they’ve been pretty good. We’re going to come out with the same mentality and just have a better start tomorrow.”
