Anze Kopitar on adjusting to playing with a knee brace

Anze Kopitar Kings practice 02-22-2013 MayorsManorPost-practice comments from Anze Kopitar…

- On playing with his knee brace: “I feel good, I have no problems with it anymore. I barely notice it anymore when I wear it. So it’s good.”

- Overall thoughts on the just completed road trip: “The start of the road trip wasn’t great in Chicago, but you know after that we picked it up. Obviously it was two huge wins for this club, and to get back in the mix. Now we have to continue playing like we did, and still improve on some stuff.”

- On the Kings struggling with day games over the last few seasons, and if his personal routine changes for a day game: “It’s really nothing different, except for no morning skate. So we just have to make sure that we’re ready right off the get go. Because Colorado has a speedy team, we’re going to need our legs right from the start.”

- On the frequency of games during the shortened season: “It is what it is really. I mean, three years ago we had four back-to-backs. I think it was in February and March. Even with the normal scheduling. So it’s not uncommon, but I guess the stretch is a little longer now since we had to pack the games down into such a short period of time. But you just have to manage yourself and get ready for each and every game.”
