Kings Coach Murray chalks up 3-0 loss to ‘bad bounces’

We’ve already heard from Kings captain Dustin Brown and defenseman Jack Johnson on the team’s 3-0 loss to the Oilers.

Now, here are some thoughts from coach Terry Murray

General comments on the game – “Just a couple of bad bounces out there. The game in Colorado we had some bad luck and some bad bounces. I look at the first goal here tonight and it was off of [Jonathan] Quick’s head. The third goal is a pass that comes from our D and hits [Anze] Kopitar in the back of the foot and they go ahead and score on it. I look at that as bad bounces that happen over the course of the year and that’s what I chalk it up to right now.”

On the shot totals, which favored Edmonton 27-19 – “They blocked a lot of shots out there tonight. I thought we in the early going, especially in the first period, had a lot of opportunities to get pucks to the net. We used our defensemen very well, low to high, and a lot of pucks were directed to the net, but they did block a lot. There was no problem in the attitude. The second period is the period that obviously was a problem for us.”

Up next, comments from the Oilers.
