Jarret Stoll – ‘3-0 or 2-1, there’s a big, big difference’

After today’s morning skate we spoke with several of the Kings players about taking on the Canucks at home for game three. In the first of a few articles we’ll post, here’s Jarret Stoll

On the pressure of playing at home, where the team often hasn’t done well – “We’re definitely not with happy our home record and how we’ve played in general at home. Too many dead games I think. Even in the playoffs the last couple of years, we’ve already been talking about it in here – we haven’t taken advantage of that (home ice). We have to this year, for sure.”

On continuing to take things just one game at a time – “For the last 25 games of the season the standings were always changing from day to day. Sometimes we weren’t even playing a game and then we were third, we’re ninth, we’re eleventh. So, you have to just take that one game and focus on that because if you don’t, you can slip pretty quickly. That set us up for the playoffs a little bit. Now, we need to play one hard game and then hopefully set us up for a good series here. That’s what it’s all about – 3-0 or 2-1, there’s a big, big difference and we know that. We’re on home ice too, so we definitely have to take advantage of it.”

Is it time to name his line yet, considering all three guys (Stoll, Dustin Penner and Trevor Lewis) have a goal in the series already – “Not yet. We’ll have a good game tonight and then we’ll talk about it tomorrow.”
