Quick Hits: Brown and Carter talk Correy Perry and the Ducks

Jeff Carter Kings MayorsManorIn his 601 game NHL career, Dustin Brown has played the Ducks 49 times. They’re tied with the other three Pacific Division teams (Dallas, Phoenix and San Jose) as the club he’s squared off against the most.

Brown has also scored 15 goals against Anaheim, just one back of his personal best vs. any team – he’s potted 16 goals vs. the Stars.

His 67 shots on goal at the Honda Center also tops his totals in any other arena he’s played in as a visitor.

Yet tonight looks to be just another day at the office for the former first round draft pick.

“It will be no different than playing in any other building really,” said the captain.

Really? There’s no difference going into enemy territory as the defending Stanley Cup Champions?

“No different,” he again stated. “I think it’s always a little bit different for the other teams when they know we’re coming in maybe.  But, we just have to focus on what we need to do to win the game.”

Contrasting Brown’s large number of games vs. the Ducks, right wing Jeff Carter has only faced off against them 10 times in his career – including twice with the Kings last season.

“We’re going to be seeing them a lot here this season so we need to set the tone early,” Carter said. “They’re playing good hockey. They have their guys running, their top guys are going pretty good right now.”

Last season, Carter made an immediate impact on the Kings-Ducks rivalry.  In just his fourth game since being traded to LA from Columbus, SoCal’s hockey teams met up at Staples Center and Carter notched his first two goals wearing a Kings uniform.

Despite less than a dozen games played vs. Anaheim though, Carter is very familiar with at least one one of their star players.

“Corey Perry’s a little rat,” Carter joked. “I know him really well, but he’s a rat on the ice.”

Tell us how you really feel Jeff.

“I love him off the ice, we’re good buddies. But, on the ice, he’s a weasel man, he’s dirty. He’s one hell of a player though.”

Interestingly enough, while Drew Doughty was hanging out with Perry in London during the lockout, Carter was in LA training and skating with several other Ducks.

“That was pretty much the first time something like that had ever happened,” said the Kings’ leading goal scorer. “You’re usually just skating with your team. But, it was a good situation for us during the lockout because we had five or six guys here and we’d join up with them and have ten or fifteen. So, it was good for everybody.”

And how will that impact the hatred – or lack there of – on the ice tonight?

“Well, it will be fun to get out there and actually play against them for real this time,” he stated. “They’re usually pretty exciting games between these two teams. So, it should be really good.”

Carter, Brown, Alec Martinez and Jake Muzzin played a round for our popular Word Association series earlier today. Click here to see what they had to say about Perry and his crew.
