Blues’ coach Hitchcock a little confused after 4-2 loss to Kings


Unfortunately, Thursday night’s post-game presser with Blues’ coach Ken Hitchcock was less eventful than the last time St. Louis lost to LA – where Hitch nearly went Dennis Green.

Following a 4-2 loss this time around he was a little more subdued, sharing the following…

– On what the official said about Jeff Carter pushing the net on the goal: “Said it was a good goal. Carter pushed the back of the net. Pushed Jaro’s foot off the post, Richards jammed it in the post. So I don’t know. I don’t know, they’ll have to explain it to you at the NHL level. Carter’s motion on the back of the net forced Jaro’s foot off the post, and it went in.”

– On if he feels his team gave the necessary effort in the third period to win the game: “We had some good stuff. We don’t have enough yet. But, we had a lot of people who poured a lot into it tonight. Not enough yet.”

– On what he thought of the play of Jaroslav Halak: “He was okay.”

    I guess he didn’t watch the replays with different angles. LOL

  2. He sounds really depressed. But I would too if I didn’t have key players on my team to help my team win (guys like Langenbrunner)…
