GM1: Anze Kopitar after Kings 2-1 loss to Blues

Following the Kings 2-1 OT loss in St. Louis on Tuesday, here’s what Anze Kopitar had to share…

On Jonathan Quick’s blunder: “To be honest, I didn’t see a whole lot.  I went back to the bench.  You know, I didn’t see how the play developed.”

On if Quick’s play was a matter of being too relaxed with a long power play: “No, I mean we had a chance to win the game.  Everyone was focused on doing that.  You know, unfortunately we gave it up.  You know obviously shouldn’t happen, or can’t happen.  It is what it is.  We didn’t play our best hockey, so we have to rebound back in a couple of days here, and play much better.”

On what they need to improve on in game two: “Well first of all special teams.  We lost the battle there.  And just battles all over the ice.  It just seemed like they were winning lots of those and coming off the boards or out of the pile with the pucks.”

On what the mindset was after the late goal by Williams and if they felt they had a chance to win at that point: “Yeah, for sure.  One shot, and everybody knows in OT anything can happen.  So we didn’t get it done, and we have to rebound in a couple days.”

On how he would describe this loss: “Bottom line, we gotta play better.  Next game is in two days.  So we have to get focused on that.”
