March 25 postgame quotes: Dustin Brown

On what led to the comeback:
“We had a huge period from our fourth line. I thought they were probably – actually our…so called fourth and third lines – were probably our best two lines in the third. They found a way to get us that first goal to tie it up, and from there I thought we limited their chances pretty well, maybe with the exception of the end there with that six-on-five. Again, I think a lot of credit goes to our third and fourth lines tonight and the way they played.”

On the team’s work ethic:
“I think we worked hard. We didn’t get discouraged coming into this. This is a hard building to play in. They’re the best team in the league. We battled against different things each period. I mean, the four-minute kill in the first was a huge kill for us. We come out of that period down one-nothing and it gives us a chance to battle back.”

On the “tire tracks” in Chicago’s zone in the third period:
“Again, that was a result of our third and fourth lines. They were great on the cycle tonight and wearing their team down. It’s pretty simple. You play more time in their zone, it’s going to wear on them [and] we’ll be fresher towards the end of the game.”

On whether Anze Kopitar’s goal that ended the scoreless streak gave the team confidence:
“I don’t worry about Anze too much. He’s our best player. When he’s not scoring, he’s doing everything else on the ice that makes him the player that he is. I know he’s pretty happy about getting a goal, but he’s much more than a point guy for us.”

On whether Kopitar’s goal allowed the team to loosen up:
“I think getting that first goal was huge after getting shutout, but getting a shorthanded goal is a big momentum change there and a great individual effort with Dewey on the last goal – nothing changes for us, but the momentum’s definitely different going into the period three-three.”

On “Mr. Highlight Film” Drew Doughty and his rush to set up Dwight King’s goal:
“Let’s not go too far with him. It’s not ‘how’, it’s ‘how many’, Drew.”

On his game-winning goal:
“Kopi won a great draw, and I got to the middle and I went to shoot and it kind of went off my stick to bounce off their guy right back to me. Like I said, at this point you take anything you can get. It’s just a big win for us.”
