Kopitar postgame quotes - LA Kings Insider

Anze Kopitar’s postgame thoughts…

(on if he was shaken up by the Phaneuf hit…)
KOPITAR: “A little bit. It was more of a wind-knocker. Other than that, I felt OK. I have no problems.”

(on whether it was a dirty hit…)
KOPITAR: “We’re going down for the puck. I’m reaching around, trying to get the puck. He doesn’t even think about the puck. You be the judge if that’s a dirty hit.”

(on the style of play tonight…)
KOPITAR: “They had some fire right at the beginning. That’s the way hockey is played sometimes, too. I thought we pushed back. Raitis got in there, OD got in there a couple times. I think it just shows that, the team, we’re going to push back. But the result was not there. I thought we did some good things, and there is some improvement left too. It’s one of those games that could go either way, and we’re definitely not satisfied with that, just playing good. We need points.”

(on another one-goal game…)
KOPITAR: “That’s how it is. For the past four years that I’ve been here, it’s been like that. Even in the beginning of the year, every single game went to overtime, so that doesn’t help at all, too. So we’ve got to find a way to win games. That’s the bottom line.”
