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.”
