Brown and Kopitar thoughts after Kings 2-0 loss to Stars

Flash quotes from the Kings locker room after 2-0 loss to the visiting Dallas Stars…

Anze Kopitar on if it was just running into a hot goalie: “Yeah, it seemed like he was on his game but it’s not an excuse for sure. We have to throw some more bodies up front, even some more shots—we had some opportunities that I thought we passed up—passing around, so we could have done a better job.”

– Kopitar on if Dallas got a greasy goal: “Well the way the game has gone…They got a greasy one. It went off, I think it was Drew’s leg, and then the other one was a rush against that we shouldn’t give up. You know, that’s just the way the game went. They got the first bounce. Again, it’s not an excuse. We should’ve gotten the job done before that.”

– Kopitar on the rush on the second goal: “I thought we were in their zone for quite a bit. Then the way the play developed, I got caught stopping on our blue line, and he went around me. I just wasn’t able to get back in time.”

– Kopitar on if it was frustrating that Kings out-shot the Stars: “It is what it is. We’ve been out shot before and won the game, so it’s a bit frustrating, but we don’t have time to mope and whine around here, we got to get back at it tomorrow and Saturday’s a new game.”

– Kopitar on Vancouver: “We know what we’re getting in Vancouver. It’s going to be a hard game. It’s gonna be physical, and we’re going to have to get ready for it.”

– Kopitar on the importance of ending the heavy home schedule with a win: “Yeah for sure. It’s always nice to get a win before you go on the road. Especially on the pretty long road trip that we’re going. We’re going to throw everything in it…To be prepared for Saturday.”

– Dustin Brown on the overall game: “It’s harder to play on the defensive side of the puck, it’s more taxing, and they just found a little bit of momentum when they got that first goal.”

– Brown on how to put the frustration aside for the next game: “It’s just a matter of refocusing, it’s a group of guys in here the last few years we’ve been really good about sticking to the program and rebounding after a tough loss. I mean this team has been through a lot together and that’s where a game like tonight, you know draw on your experiences.”
