Matt Greene – ‘We played right into their game’

In the Kings 4-1 loss to the Red Wings this afternoon, defenseman Matt Greene played 13:42, took one shot and had three hits. He was also a plus-1.

After things wrapped up, he spoke to the media…

On the overall game – “They capitalized on turnovers and we didn’t. When you play these guys there are shifts when you’re in your zone for a little while, but tonight it was way too much. We turned pucks over and played right into their game. They had a great game; a lot of their guys were playing really well. We played right into their system like that, so they’re going to have great success.”

On special teams – “They had a good power play and we could be better on penalty kills. We got to make plays out there.”

On the claim the Red Wings are too old and too slow – “They say that every year and nothing really changes. They have guys who play their system really well and as gifted as they are, they’re a really good defensive team. We turned the puck over in the neutral zone and we paid for our mistakes.”

More to come.
