Game 3 vs. San Diego postgame quotes: LoVerde, Campbell - LA Kings Insider

Vincent LoVerde, on a third period in which killed a 5-on-3 but were unable to score:
Yeah, I mean, we did a good job killing off the 5-on-3. Guys were battling. Kind of changed momentum for the period a little bit. We were getting some chances like you said. There’s a bang-bang play and that’s playoff hockey and that’s a playoff goal. We’ve got to be a little bit better in the third I think though.

LoVerde, on San Diego’s game-winning goal:
Yeah the guy came out of the corner, me and Amadio called the switch, I’ve got to do a better job closing on that guy.

LoVerde, on what it will take to force the series to a Game 5:
I know it’s a cliché, but like everyone says, you’ve got to take it one game at a time. We play on Monday, I’m sure we’ll have some video. I think everyone in the room knows they need to be better and needs to rebound for the next one. So we’re going back home and we’ve got to get better and win the next one.

Jack Campbell, on losing by two goals (including an empty net):
Yeah, disappointing. Just got to make those two saves and we win the game 1-0, same as last game.

Campbell, on San Diego’s second goal:
I’ve just got to save it.

Campbell, on whether he has to avoid “beating himself up after a game like this”:
Yeah, I mean, I’m not even rattled about it. I know I have the ability to make all of those saves and the one thing I’m good at this year is moving on and they scored early, and again they scored early, and I shut the door until whenever they scored at the end of the game so clearly I’m not flustered by it I just know I have the ability to make both of those saves. Yeah, just have to be accountable for my game, so.
