Milan Lucic, on whether the five-on-three penalty kill sparked their game:
I think our game was moving in the right direction. We came out hard in the second period. But you look at the game as a whole, being able to kill that, what was it, minute and 15 five-on-three. I think we only allowed two ... Read More
Jaromir Jagr, on whether the game changed after the five-on-three power play:
For one-and-a-half minutes, so we should be able to score. I had one chance there, but he made a good save. Luo was excellent this game, we just didn’t help much.
Jagr, on having the lead after the first period:
We h... Read More
On whether momentum was built off the five-on-three kill, or whether he had already liked the team’s game:
We held our own after giving up a goal late in the first period, and obviously killing a five-on-three any time, you look at Florida, I think they’d scored four five-on-three goals of their 11... Read More

Darryl Sutter had pointed observations of Dustin Brown’s play on Thursday – he made a point to note on Friday that he wasn’t criticizing him – during an overlap between this season and the last in which the Kings’ captain has scored one goal since February 18.
“He’s continuing to work hard,” Sutt... Read More
On adjustments to the team’s lines:
We did on the Chicago trip, too, and then Kopi got hurt in St. Louis, too, and we moved those guys around. I’m not really set on anything.
