Kopitar postgame quotes

(on tonight’s secondary scoring, from Frolov, Stoll and Handzus…)

KOPITAR: “It’s always great to see. Sometimes two goals is not enough from the first line, and everybody else contributed right in and it was really nice to see. If you want to be a consistent team, you need that secondary scoring too, for sure, and it was a big part of this game for sure.”

(on his line’s great recent play…)

KOPITAR: “It’s a special feeling that you almost can’t describe. You know, when you go on the ice, that things are going to happen, instead of just hoping that things are going to happen. We’re making plays, and that’s part of the growth that Dean is always talking about and Terry is always talking about, when you know you’re going to come out and outplay the guy across from you. That’s a huge part of growing, a huge part of being a playoff team and right now, we’re showing it and playing with a lot of confidence.”

(on whether the Kings ever felt that confidence last season…)

KOPITAR: “There were stretches that come, but obviously you have to stay consistent. I think, throughout these 12 games, everybody has been consistent and playing with a lot of confidence, a lot of energy all the time, a lot of passion, which is great. It’s really nice to see.”
