Murray explains why some players needed extra rest tonight

More from LA Kings coach Terry Murray’s post game presser…

Question – Does it take a while to get the lines back to where you want them after a long kill like that (in the first period)?

Murray – “Oh yeah. I’m using my top guys and that’s hard work. When you get caught out there, especially the way (Vancouver) passes the puck, you just can’t make a change. The goalie can’t stop it and there’s a lot of anaerobic work and that is fatigue. When they do come back to the bench I have to give them some extra time to recover and that does throw a little wrench into everything, but that’s hockey. It takes a little while to get it sorted out so they can get back to normal play again.”
