Quotes from Anaheim Ducks locker room after 5-2 loss in LA

Let’s take a quick lap around the Anaheim Ducks locker room and get some post-game thoughts following their 5-2 loss to the Kings at Staples Center on Monday night…

– Saku Koivu on the overall game: “On Brown’s goal. It was a wrist shot that hit the bar and went it. The third one trickled in. Those were tough goals. Fasth can’t take the blame for this one. We have to forget this one and get back on Wednesday. The schedule coming up is heavier so we just have to get it back. They are a tough team to play. They are physical, big team. We knew coming into this getting two points would have been huge for our club. We didn’t do it.”

– Viktor Fasth on the overall game: “During the whole game I had to work really hard to see the pucks. It’s one of those games. Try to learn from these games and get back to work. They are a good team and so are we. We really wanted to win this game and it didn’t end up like that.”

– More from Fasth: “Some days you have those games when it feels you can track the puck much easier. Today I was fighting hard. I made some bad decisions out there. We just have to forget this and start working harder next game.”

– Coach Bruce Boudreau on the overall game: “We had a chance when it was 2-1 to make it 3-1 maybe even 4-1 at one point. Once they scored that third goal it didn’t seem like we had the push to sustain any rushes against. It was a tough situation for us. We didn’t get a chance to breathe. Basically every time we touched the puck they were on us. Especially after they scored and the crowd was energized and they were energized. Sometimes back to back games catch up to you.”

– Boudreau on Fasth bouncing back after first loss: “He’ll respond. He’s a really good goaltender. There’s not much he could do. He made some really good saves first. Maybe the third one that snuck through him by an inch, he could have squeezed a little tighter. That was a slap shot from the top of the circles or inside the top of the circles. It should have been covered; shouldn’t have had that shot.”
