Kopitar postgame quotes

(on his first career hat trick…)

KOPITAR: “It feels great. It almost didn’t feel great, the way the game ended, but we got two points and that’s the most important thing I guess, right now. We have to look forward and maybe forget the last period of this one and just keep going forward.”

(on whether he could have scored a goal similar to the first goal last season…)

KOPITAR: “Yeah, maybe. I don’t know. It’s one thing I’ve done in the past. I scored my first NHL goal like that. It’s obviously a nice thing to get one. I got stronger over the summer.”

(on Wayne Simmonds’ play on the first line…)

KOPITAR: “He got the chance and I think he took it. He played really well. He made some strong plays and it was definitely good having him on the right side.”
