Dustin Brown, on the team’s push to be in a playoff spot:
There is never, ever any doubt within this room. I think a lot of the doubt and a lot of the “Are we going to make the playoffs?” was coming from outside of the room. In saying that, where we are now is we still have a lot of work to do. We ... Read More
On the ice conditions and the atmosphere:
I thought it was really, really good. Like really fortunate for our organization to be able to say we did it two years in a row and two totally different venues. But I think everybody involved did a really great job. It's hard to have great ice because i... Read More
Anze Kopitar, on what the difference was between the second and third periods:
I thought we made strong plays in our zone and coming out and didn’t do too many mistakes. We didn’t give the puck away too many times, that always helps that you don’t have to defend.
Kopitar, on how this game compa... Read More

The sentiment is really only memorable because the Kings lost at Dodger Stadium, but last year’s event – Los Angeles’ sixth straight game out of eight that were played outside of Staples Center – came during one of the more challenging stretches of the schedule. The Kings played games in all four le... Read More
Adjustments will need to be made for today’s Stadium Series game between the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks – and we’re not only talking about the ice quality or the titanic surroundings at the 68,500-person capacity Levi’s Stadium.

Good morning, San Jose, and good morning, Insiders.
