Stoll postgame quotes

Jarret Stoll’s postgame thoughts…

(on the recent slide…)
STOLL: “We’ve got to try to figure out what’s going on. Four losses, out of six, on this homestand is not good enough, obviously. Detroit lost, and some teams lost today, and we didn’t take advantage of it. Our starts are… They got a power-play goal early and they rolled from there, and we just didn’t show any energy, any jump. We had some good shifts, but not enough, not enough sustained pressure, not enough compete attitude to win, especially against that attitude.”

(on the Kings’ up-and-down play in recent games…)
STOLL: “That’s the consistency part of it. A playoff team is very consistent. Right now, we’re right on that edge. We’ve got to find it. We’ve got to be more consistent. We’re at home. We could move into (sixth) tonight with a win and we don’t take advantage of it. That’s a problem, but we’ve got to get going here and win some games. We’ve just been too inconsistent.”

(on the need to score more power-play goals…)
STOLL: “Score goals, period. Yeah, the power play is struggling right now. It’s just going in. We’ve got to bear down more, take control of it. Whoever is out there, take control of it. We need more desparation with shooting. You don’t want to get shots blocked, either, but you’ve got to make plays and you’ve got to make the right reads. Right now, we’re making mistakes and it’s in our net. Simple breakouts and turn over pucks, time after time, and it’s in the back of our net pretty quick, especially against a team like that. You’ve got to play stingy. We’ve played stingy against them this year in some games. Tonight was one of those games where you could see it. We weren’t prepared and ready.”
