Devils quotes - LA Kings Insider

Here’s some of the reaction from the New Jersey locker room last night…

COACH JOHN MACLEAN
“Tonight’s game was tough. A couple of mistakes and it’s in the net. We pushed it a little in the third period, but we weren’t getting the scoring we needed.”

“They shut down Kovalchuk a couple of times. We have to play as a unit and it’s tough. We had a couple of mishaps around the net, bumping Marty [Martin Brodeur] on our own. We’ve just got to keep saying we need to battle through this.”

“Execution was a problem tonight. We need to work on stick-to-stick passes and get some shots on the net.”

“It’s a process we have to go through here. We’re going to have to bounce back. Tomorrow is an off day then we play again Monday and we need to get ready to go.”

JAMIE LANGENBRUNNER:
“Tonight was frustrating because we did a lot of good things, especially late in the game. It just wasn’t enough and that’s what’s frustrating about it.”

“We’re doing a better job of getting traffic in front of the net. We’re trying to get more second and third opportunities but we’re just not capitalizing on them. We need to continue to put forth a good effort and keep it going the whole game.”

“It’s frustrating when you get a goal on the board to make it 2-1 and then give up a goal on the next shift. Those are big moments in the game where you’ve got to come out with your best and we just weren’t doing that.”
