Jeff Carter on his goal streak and Trevor Lewis the points machine

Post-game quotes from Jeff Carter following the Kings 4-1 win over the Avalanche on Saturday…

– On his scoring streak: “We’re playing well as a line, winning a lot of puck battles lately. Richie is doing a great job of finding me. Lewy’s doing a great job of getting on pucks on the forecheck and turning them over for us, and I’m just hanging out in the slot and its been working.”

– On if Darryl Sutter should just move everybody to left wing and the goals will come: “I guess. He’s (Lewis) been working real hard for us. Even when he wasn’t scoring. He was getting opportunities and creating chances. So when you’re doing that, it’s just a matter of time before pucks go in the net.”

– On struggles during day games and how great it was to set the tone early: “Their line (Brown-Kopitar-Williams) did a great job starting it out for us. I think their first four or five shifts, they were all over them in their zone. When you see that, the team just kind of feeds off of it. It’s not easy coming home after a big road trip and playing an afternoon game. Sometimes you come out a little slow, but we did a great job of coming out hard, winning battles, and putting them back on their heels.”

– On momentum starting to build: “This was a pretty solid game for us and it’s nice for us to get more than two or three goals, that’s a plus. But I think things are starting to come around, it’s still a work in progress.”
