Jarret Stoll concerned about Kings being ‘easy around the net’

Jarret Stoll Kings at Coyotes MayorsManorA few comments from Kings’ center Jarret Stoll following LA’s 3-1 loss in Phoenix on Tuesday night…

– On the team not seeming to flow well: “Yeah, it was kind of a weird game for a lot of it there. We had some good plays, we had some good chances; we just didn’t bear down in front of the net and put the puck through the net. I would say maybe we out chanced them a little bit, made some good plays, but we have to finish. We have to bear down. You hear everybody else say that, you can’t win many games by only scoring one goal. We didn’t tonight. We won’t if we’re going to be that easy around the net.”

– On having to manufacture energy: “You shouldn’t have to. You should have it, you gotta find it. You have to be a professional and try and find it and be consistent every game. Some games you’re not going to find the high level that you want, but you have to be smart about it. You have to think the game a little bit better and be good positionally. Tonight, two goals that were just mental errors. Positionally, you know, we’re in the wrong spots. Two-three feet here or there, and you know, it cost us tonight.”

– On owing Minnesota one: “Yeah we do. We let that one slip away also in Minny. We have to get home, get some rest, and get right back at it.”
