Peter Budaj, on playing two strong games in a row:
Yeah, well, it's crunch time and I think the guys are playing really good in front of me. After they got a lead very early in the second period, it's never easy to give up a goal the first 30 seconds in the period and we just bounced back. The guys... Read More
The Kings were the better team for the majority of the 60 minutes of play Saturday night at Staples Center, but this season is running low on time for the “they played well but still lost” games.

Alec Martinez, on the 3-4-0 home stand:
Not good enough. Had an opportunity here with four games at home. I think we were home for ac ouple weeks and we didn’t take advantage of it the way we should have.
Martinez, on the odd-man rushes and why the game was more wide open than most:
