Brown postgame quotes (Feb. 25)

Dustin Brown’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
BROWN: “It was a really complete game. Given the last, probably, 10 games, where we’ve been really struggling, I think it’s important for us to realize what we did tonight and what it took to play that way. We’re fighting for a spot right now. We need to be happy with that game, but also understand why we performed as well as we did.’’

(on the special-teams effort…)
BROWN: “Our power play got some goals, and I think our PK was probably the most impressive thing. We had to kill off penalty after penalty. You’ve got guys blocking shots, doing all the little things that make the PK successful.’’

(on what was different tonight…)

BROWN: “I think our preparation. Everyone is capable of playing. It’s more about getting prepared the right way, and that’s as individuals and as a team, collectively. When you see that we’re prepared right, you don’t see the turnovers, you don’t see the little mistakes that make a big difference over the course of a game. We didn’t make very many mistakes tonight.’’

(on his hat trick…)
BROWN: “I hope to build on it. I think we’ve been struggling as a team, and I’ve been struggling personally, to score goals. It definitely felt good to score some goals tonight, and hopefully build on that. As a team, we’ve just got to focus on what I just touched on, getting into those scoring areas. I think if we get into those scoring areas more often, we’ll start scoring goals.’’

(on hearing his name in trade rumors…)
BROWN: “I’ve been a King my whole career and I expect to be a King beyond the next few days. … It’s my responsibility to prepare myself the best I can and tonight felt good.”
