Jarret Stoll – LA Kings players were ‘fed up’ with things

With two assists last night, Jarret Stoll doubled his output for the season…and reached a milestone, his 300th NHL point.

It was a ‘team win,’ with four different players scoring goals and several guys having breakout performances.

After the game, Stoll shared a few thoughts…

On the overall game – “We played a little bit desperate. We knew we had to stop this before it got out of control. We needed to work hard, be determined, be first on loose pucks, play with an attitude and be a little bit mad out there. I think we were that tonight. You could see on the offensive side of the puck we were jumping, we were first on loose pucks, we were getting pucks back to the net – therefore, they were back on their heals a little bit. That’s kind of what we’ve been doing the last couple of weeks, we’ve been on our heals. I think tonight we were on our toes, we were jumping and we were getting our feet going.”

On the early morning meeting with coach Terry Murray – “It was a quiet day. You could definitely tell guys were fed up with the way things have been going. We knew what we had to do, we knew what we haven’t been doing. It’s just a matter of everybody going out there, individually and collectively, and doing it. We got a couple quick goals and then the got a couple quick ones. We just stuck with it. It could have been a tough game at that point, you know how those games go sometimes. But, we stuck with it and got a big goal by Ricky (Mike Richards) to make it 3-2 and then Gags (Simon Gagne). Bernie (Jonathan Bernier) played well. He made some big saves for us when he had to and that’s what you need.”
