Jarret Stoll on pentaly kill confusion and Kings’ goaltending

Jarrett Stoll Kings Coyotes MayorsManor
With his power play goal in the third period Tuesday night, Jarret Stoll has now equalled his goal output of all last season – in just 29 games, compared to 78 a year ago. The Kings’ third line center has now also collected four points (two goals, two assists) in his last three games.

Additionally, his three goals scored at Staples Center this season (all within the last six games) have each been credited as the game-winning goal.

Following LA’s 3-2 win over the Coyotes on Tuesday, he shared the following thoughts…

- On the play where Bernier lost his stick: “I think Slava gave Bernie his, and then I gave mine to Slava. You gotta do it. You can kind of, maybe, get away with it up top with no stick if you get lucky. But, defensemen need their sticks and definitely the goaltender. So, we’ve got caught like that the last three games on the penalty kill. Losing sticks or breaking sticks. It’s tough, you gotta work. The bench has to be ready getting the spare stick ready. It was quite the sequence.”

- On Phoenix coming out hard: “Yeah we knew that. We just didn’t handle it like we would have liked, but that’s when you need your goaltender – a good goaltender to withstand that pressure. They had a great push to start the game and they had another push in the third. You know, that’s where our goaltender has been great. Quickie did it last night, and Bernie did it tonight. We didn’t have our A-game so to speak, but we got the four points we needed. Our goaltenders did a great job in this two-game set. We just have to clean up our game a little bit.”
