November 2 postgame quotes: Dustin Brown

On what the team did well in the third period:
Getting bodies to the net, and getting the puck there. They had a lot of blocked shots in the first two periods, and when you get bodies to the net, more stuff happens. [Reporter: Were you not doing that enough in the first and second?] I think we were shooting the puck a lot. Again, we’ve got to get on the goalie, and a lot of shots were blocked or missed the net.

On what the team needs to address on the penalty kill:
It’s just details for this team when it comes to the PK. We’ve been struggling on it, and…we’ve got to clear the slate. We’ve shown in the past that we can be a high-percentage PK. It’s just about getting back to basics on it. All PK is work and positioning, so it’s just a matter of doing those two things.

On the challenges of fighting from behind against Nashville:
They sit back. They’re always over the top of the puck, and you’ve got to go through three, four guys to get into their zone. I think the third period, a lot of it was we got in behind them and then forechecked, which is our game.

On the team’s reaction to allowing a late goal after coming back in the third period:
There’s not a lot of doubt in this room. We’ve been through a lot together as a group. It’s one of those things where you’ve got to just try to find a way to get back to even. Kopi, our best player, has the ouck and it just rolls off his stick on a tap-in. We’ve got to find a way to do it, though.

On Tyler Toffoli:
Good offensively. He had a couple really good shots. He got the puck to the net on the power play goal and fit right in.

On returning alongside Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams:
I’ve played with both those guys long enough that it doesn’t really take long. They had to switch lines up there, and we found a way to get back into the game, but again, a late goal.
