Carter, Doughty and Lewis on the Kings 3-1 win in Edmonton

Some quick reaction from the Kings locker room following their 3-1 vs the Oilers on Tuesday night in Edmonton…

Drew Doughty on the overall game: “I thought we played a good, full 60 minutes tonight and that’s something we’ve been struggling with all year. If we come out hard in that first 20 and build from there, I think that’s how we’re going to win more games.”

– Doughty on the goaltending: “Both goalies were great. Khabibulin played great on their end. We had a lot of chances, a lot of opportunities we probably should have buried. Same with out goalie, Quickie, he was great. He saved like three breakaways or something crazy like that. So, it was a great win. Even though we only won by a couple of goals, we still need to look back and make sure we bear down on our chances and put more pucks in the net.”

Jeff Carter on the overall game: “We played a pretty solid game. A pretty good defensive road game. We battled hard, did we had to do to win and now we’ll get out of here.”

– Carter on Trevor Lewis: “Lewey played great. He’s been squeezing a little bit here to get on the board. He’s a guy for our team that works so hard and does so many little things that people don’t really realize. So, it was nice to see him get rewarded tonight.”

– Lewis on his two-point night: “I think I’ve been getting unlucky most of the year. So, it’s nice to get a bounce. But, we have to keep going. We played a pretty solid road game here tonight. We can’t think about it too much though, we have a big one tomorrow. So, we need to get refocused and ready to go.”
