Brown and Stoll comments after Kings 1-0 loss to Canucks

Flash quotes from the Kings locker room after 1-0 loss to the visiting Vancouver Canucks…

- Dustin Brown on the overall game: “You see when this team is playing really well on the offense on the puck it’s generally not the really pretty goals, it’s making it. A lot of goalies will make that first save it’s getting around the net and pouncing on those loose, and again we’re not making it hard enough on the opposing team’s goaltenders right now.”

- Brown on what has to happen now: “Get to the net with the puck. We’ve gone through spurts here this year where we scored a lot of goals and just the result of getting the puck to the net with bodies at the same time and again you look at tonight and even the grade A scoring chances, there’s pucks there that we have to get to and the power play, that’s been a big source of our offense and tonight I think maybe we had one shot so we had to get back to puck moving, power playing and shooting the puck.”

- Brown on the Canucks getting five of six points against them: “I think they’ve always been a top tier team. Sometimes you match up differently year-to-year. We just have to find a way. (Today) we played a better game against them, but they’ve been a good team for a number of years and found a way to win.”

- Brown on what has to change going into Chicago: “I think we just have to refocus on what makes us successful. I think we have to focus in and look at it as a one game road trip to Chicago. We’re going into Chicago to win a game. Again, we have the group of guys in here to compete each and every night. We just have to get everyone going. Four lines, six defensemen. We’ve never been a successful team having one or two lines do it. It’s always been a group effort. So that’s what we have to get back to.”

- Jarret Stoll on the overall game: “We chased the game a little bit more than we should. I don’t know if we out-chanced them or not, it was pretty close but I wouldn’t say we played bad. We just didn’t find a way to win the game. We didn’t a find way to get pucks on net when we had good scoring chances, that bear down mentality to score.”

- Stoll on why the Kings were shutout: “Every team has good goaltending, this league is all about that and low scoring games and 1-0, 3-2, whatever, bottom line is we got to be better to score goals and bear down more. It’s not like we’re not getting chances as a team, I think we are but I think we can work for more chances, number one, and number two, we can bear down when we get those chances.”

- Stoll on how Cory Schneider’s save on Lewis changed the momentum: “It’s part of the game. Quickie made some big saves for us when it was one-nothing for them, and it kept us in the game. It goes both ways. We just gotta find a way to push through and find a way to put the puck in the net.”

- Stoll on why Vancouver’s defense bothered them so much: “They were aggressive, they made some good reads. I don’t think we used our speed enough against their D, to cause turnovers, to get them turned, to get them going back for pucks and making tough decisions, tough plays. We’re a speed game. We got speed on the wings and up the middle. I don’t think we used our speed to our advantage enough (today).”
