Kyle Okposo, on trying to generate offense:
It was tough. It wasn’t an easy game to play in. Obviously they’re a really good hockey team for a reason. They all buy in and they all play the game the right way and played their systems well tonight I thought and we just had a tough time.

Okposo, on the game:
We played well for 30 minutes and then kind of sho0t ourselves in the foot a little bit, but we’re right in the game and that hasn’t been our problem lately. At the end of the day we have to find a way to win, because this is unacceptable.

Kevin Poulin, on Dustin Brown’s goal:
I didn’t anticipate anything. They did a great play and he was ready so he had easy access to a wrap around.

Jack Capuano, on the game:
To me, I know what our record is. It is what it is. It’s not like we’re getting dominated in these games. They scored on a one-on-four that we got beat and they scored on a wrap around and we had a chance shorthanded that hit a post. If we’re not going to score any goals it’s to be tough for us. I thought our penalty kill was excellent tonight, obviously. We played a team that’s used to having quite a few shots. We held them to under 25 and they probably had six or seven on their power play and we didn’t give any [—-] on our power play and that’s probably the difference in the game. That’s it in a nutshell.

Capuano, on Los Angeles:
Their top players were their top players tonight and that’s why they won the hockey game.

Capuano, on New York’s penalty kill:
We take a lot of confidence. We spent a lot of time here over the last month and a half or two, especially over the last week and I thought they did a good job against a real good team. Especially Voynov and Doughty and some of the D that are real active, Muzzin on the back end, and we gave them a few chances but not as much as we’ve given up in the last two weeks.
