Kopitar post-game on Canucks – ‘They don’t like us, we don’t like them’

More post-game quotes following the Kings 3-2 shooutout win over the Vancouver Canucks. Here’s what Anze Kopitar had to say…

– On his failed attempt in the shootout: “I don’t know what I was thinking today you know. I just tried to beat him really on my backhand; just like Jeff (Carter) did on the other side. So, he read me and I had nothing.”

– On if he shares the same level of hatred for the Canucks as Doughty and a few of his teammates: “Yeah, I guess they’re one of the most hated teams in the league really. Everybody’s talking about them. But, but at the end of the day, it’s really just another game and you’re trying to win. When it comes to a playoff series, it’s a little different though – you build the hate up a little bit I guess and since we’ve played them two out of the three years. we’re familiar with them. They don’t like us and we don’t like them, there’s no secret to it.”

– On the Canucks chirping on the ice: “I didn’t hear anything today…I just block it out by now.”

– On the line combinations changing throughout the game tonight: “It was a little bit of a lottery out there. Whoever got their number called really, you jump. We all really play the same system, so when you get on the ice you know what you have to do. It doesn’t really matter, and it worked out today.”

    “they’re one of the most hated teams in the league really.” Hahahaha. Deadpan greatness.

  2. Dave Sato says:

    For the 3 Stars of the Game Monday, the media selected Kopitar (11). Did they write down 77 for Carter and it was mistaken for 11? 11 can look like 77 when written poorly. Carter scored 2 goals and was given less credit than Luongo? What Up With That?

    • John Hoven says:

      Not sure what happened. The small sample I took in the press box had everybody taking Carter first overall. As of this morning, the official sheet hadn’t been changed.
