Dustin Brown, on the game:
Those are games that we need points and we didn’t get any tonight. So at the end of the day we go home. The first thing we have to do is take care of business at home. It’s not where we want to be, but we can’t sit here and feel bad for ourselves. We have to go out and play. We still have a chance, so that’s what I think guys in this room have been really good at, is realizing that the opportunity is there.
Brown, on the challenges they faced in the game:
We didn’t have the start we wanted. We didn’t really play that well in the first, even though we tied that period. We’re not clean moving the puck and Chicago’s a good team, but we didn’t execute our plays as cleanly as we would’ve liked and they’re a team that is that kind of turnover team. We had a lot of them tonight, everyone.
Brown, on whether the puck was bouncing on his opportunity at the side of the net:
I had a couple right by the side. I just couldn’t find the puck.
Brown, on going 3-2-0 on the road trip:
Like I said, this group is pretty good at ‘It’s not what you did yesterday, it’s what you’re doing today.’ And today we lost. So it’s not good enough for this group. Again, we all realize that in here and we’re going home so we have to take care of business at home. There is no question about that.
Anze Kopitar, on the loss:
It’s tough. We were in a position where we can control our own outcome standings-wise and it’s disappointing to drop two where we know we have to play desperate hockey and we’ve got to rack up points.
Kopitar, on whether Chicago played with a purpose in the second period:
I don’t think it was anything special they did. It’s just that we gave up the power play goal and we gave up another one that was off our mistake and that just can’t happen.
