Full Jeff Carter quotes after Kings 4-1 over Oilers

Jeff Carter after the Kings 4-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers…

- On the first period: “I thought we were pretty good in the first. You know, they have that one line that’ll make a few plays here and there. But, I thought we did a great job on them.”

- On how good Drew Doughty and Robyn Regehr were against Edmonton’s top line: “They were great. That’s what they do. They play hard against top guys. I think having Reg back there for Dewey now - a big physical guy - kind of gives Dewey a little more free reign, I guess. They’ve been great.”

- On dealing with Edmonton’s speed: “Well, we started to skate. We’re a fast team too. Last couple games that we’ve played them, we didn’t - I guess, have our speed, we didn’t work pucks low. Tonight we did all that. When you’re doing that and you’re (keeping) the puck low, they’re not going anywhere.”

- On outshooting the Oilers in the second period: “I don’t know what the shots were in the first, but I thought we controlled the play most of the game. I thought we were strong and worked them well.”

- On being streaky, but going the right way now: “That’s right. It’s always a work in progress, and this is the time of the year that we have to get wins. Lately it seems like you win a few games, and then you lose one, and you’re right back to where you started in the standings. So we have to put a run together here and kind of get our spot set.”

- If day games: “I actually like them. I never had a problem with them. You just kind of wake up and go. You don’t have much time to think about things. Usually the first team to wake up wins. So, I enjoy them.”

- On the addition of Regehr and what he’s meant to the team: “You know, he’s a veteran guy. He’s a strong locker room presence. He’s been here for two games, and when something needs to be said, he’s not afraid to speak up. That’s great for us. He’s a big stay-at-home guy and he kind of settles things down there in the back. With him and Scuds kind of holding the fort down, you can let Dewey and Muzz and Slava do their thing. So it’s been good.”

- On if he was concerned when Anze Kopitar went down: “I didn’t even see it actually. I hear that it was Brownie. So he probably owes us some money next game.”

- On the importance of the strong starts the last two games: “It’s huge, especially at home. You know, the crowd’s into it. If we can get off to a big start and get a few goals early; it kind of sets the tone. We’ve been lucky enough to do it the past couple games. So we’ll see if we can keep it going on the road.”
