Quick quotes from Kings coach Terry Murray after 4-1 loss

I’ll have more Terry Murray quotes from his post game presser up later.

Here are some key highlights though…

On Anze Kopitar’s first career penalty shot – “It was a critical time, but I would answer today that it was a small part of it—the missed opportunity there to score.”

On the overall game – “Things turned after they made it 1-1. They scored right away on the power play after we got a short-handed goal that I thought was really going to be a huge momentum boost for us. I don’t know what happened on that. I haven’t watched the replay on it. I just remember Brownie [Dustin Brown] looked like he almost got tackled there as he was coming out to the point to the loose puck. But they score right away and started to feed off of some of the turnovers and some of the decisions that we made to get the puck back to them. By the end of the second period they had the game going the way they wanted and we ended up chasing it.”

On Mike Richards’ shorthanded goal – “He is one of the better penalty killers in the game I think. He has always got that anticipation. He’s ready for those plays that he might be able to jump on to put some pressure on the other team. He did it again tonight. Again, that to me was a huge play. Against a team like Detroit, that should be a great opportunity for you to feed off of that kind of momentum.”

Comments from Murray on Drew Doughty and the Kings’ penalty kill up later.
