Dustin Brown on the maturity level of the Kings this time around

Continuing with the comments following this morning’s pre-game skate by the Kings, here’s team captain Dustin Brown in advance of game three vs. the Canucks…

On what the Kings need to do to stay focused at home – “I think just by bringing attention to it. Most of the guys have been here for those games where we haven’t played well at home, especially in the playoffs. We also have a couple of new guys who I think will help us establish a better home game – with Ricky (Mike Richards) and Carts (Jeff Carter) and Fraz (Colin Fraser) coming in. Those are guys, to a certain degree, really help the maturity level of the team. ”

On the Kings third line – “This time of year you need your best players to be your best players and everyone else falls in line. You’re going to need timely goals from third and fourth line guys. We’ve gotten that so far. And the important thing with them scoring is that they’ve haven’t given any up either. They haven’t given up many goals. It’s going to take everyone. This is not going to be a series that’s won by one guy or one line or a couple lines. It’s going to take all 12 forwards, all six defensemen and two goalies. That’s our mentality and when you get chip-i scoring from (a line) like that, it really helps the confidence of those guys and also the overall team.”

On the most annoying question from the media in Vancouver this week – “The twitter question. It had nothing to do with players or management. I’m assuming it had to do with some intern here in the office. It was what it was, but it just gets old after a while. Both teams were probably sick of talking about it.”

More to come.
