Kopitar postgame quotes

Anze Kopitar’s postgame thoughts…

(on his game thoughts…)
KOPITAR: “I thought it was a good effort from both teams. Unfortunately we dropped it in the shootout, but I thought the effort was there, and the composure and compete level and energy level was there. It’s just two good teams going at it. It’s too bad that we lost, but the shootout is really a lottery.”

(on Nabokov’s game…)
KOPITAR: “He was good. He made some good saves right off the bad, too. We had our chances and, to be honest, he didn’t have a whole lot of work in the shootout. Four out of six were kind of bobbled pucks or something. That’s a little unlucky, but he’s a great goaltender and you have to make a great shot to beat him.”

(on being on equal footing with the Sharks, overall…)
KOPITAR: “No question. Even the record says it too. I think we have the same record right now. But like I said, I thought that in the first period we were better than them. The second period, obviously they came back a little more. Everything was going fine. We scored a goal, we took the lead, and they scored a goal but it was back and forth. We had enough chances, so we can say at the end of the day that we did play an equal game against them. We can compare ourselves to them.”
