Anze Kopitar on the playoff race and potential trades

Following the Kings 1-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks, here’s what Anze Kopitar had to share…

– On if he’s concerned with the playoff race at this point: “Yeah, at this point I don’t really think you need to look at the standings. You win a couple you’re in fourth. You lose a couple, you’re down in five, six, seven even. So it’s going to be about us. About our game and the way we’re performing.”

– On if he’s noticed any adjustments on opposing teams penalty kills: “I’m pretty sure they have video too. They’re going to try and look at us. Try the same thing we do to the other team. So there’s no secret to what we do. But we gotta do it better. Today was not nearly as good enough as we need to be.”

– On if the team needs another scorer: “Right now it seems that way, but before these two games I don’t think we had trouble scoring. Would it help? For sure. Are we in desperate need of one? I don’t think so, because we have a lot of firepower…Or a lot of guys that can score on any given night.”

– On what was different about the last two games on offense: “Probably if we knew, we’d probably have done the same thing tonight and score a couple. I don’t know. I can’t point out anything.”

– On having to score against Chicago: “Yeah, usually the way it goes, it’s going to go in off somebody’s skate or somebody’s ass. We’ll get on the board and the floodgates are gonna open.”
