LA Kings coach Murray and Jarret Stoll talk missed penalty

Montreal at LA, final score 2-1.

Late in the game, Jarret Stoll had his stick snapped in half from a slash by one of the Canadiens. Although Stoll was screaming for a penalty, none was called. After the game, here’s what they were saying…

Coach Murray – “That was not the game. There were a lot of opportunities in the first period with the power play that we had, the 5-on-3. Those are missed opportunities. It’s unfortunate that we didn’t score on it. We just didn’t get enough traffic at the net. [Carey] Price saw a lot of those pucks. We need to be more diligent in front of the net to get screens on the goalie.”

Stoll – “Tough to not get that call. Both of those referees are good guys, they’re good refs. They just missed that one…There are some calls out there that can go either way. We had some power plays too, we had our chances. Early on, we had some power plays that we didn’t capitalize on. It’s just with blatant calls like that [the missed one], I don’t care if it’s the first period, third period or if it’s 10-0, those are penalties and it’s disappointing they missed it. But, that’s not the reason we lost the game. You’re not going to win a lot of games when you score one goal.”
