Peter Budaj, on what the Kings did well to help him get the shutout:
Well I definitely think this is a tough building, I think it's a hard game to play in. This is a building where the home team is building off the momentum from the building and I think the guys did a great job. Especially on the P... Full Story
On whether there were a lot of things he liked about the team’s performance:
Yeah, we had a really strong game. Came back twice from down one goal against a team that had lost only five games, I believe, all season.
On the difference in Columbus between last year and this year:
Not much diffe... Full Story
Tyler Toffoli, on whether the 1-0 game was “frustrating”:
Yeah. I think we had some chances we just didn’t get our shots through. Myself, personally, I had a couple chances that I should have put in there and it’s frustrating knowing when you have some good shots and good opportunities that you don... Full Story

Anze Kopitar, on what was different in this game compared to their last:
The first period, I didn’t think it was nearly intense as it needed to be. They scored two 2-on-1 goals which, giving odd-man rushes against a team like that it’s certainly not the way to win.
Kopitar, on whether he noticed... Full Story
Drew Doughty, on what went wrong:
We just didn’t execute our game plan, we went in there trying to get another goal in the third period. They pushed back. And it’s not what our team does. We don’t give up leads in the last five minutes of the game. That’s been our thing for a long time. It’s pretty... Full Story
