Kopitar and Nolan happy with Kings’ effort on Sunday, not result

By far, the funniest lines of the weekend came from Drew Doughty and Rob Scuderi. We’ll get to those in a moment though. First, here are a few of the more serious comments we gathered from the Kings’ locker room following their 4-3 shootout loss in Anaheim on Sunday night…

- Anze Kopitar on the overall game: “Thought we showed character. Battled back three times, and we just short again the extra point. You know, shootout…It’s usually a crapshoot, and they were better at it tonight.”

- Kopitar on the importance of getting at least one point: “Yeah, for sure. Second back-to-back. I thought we played solid too. We played physical, we competed, and like I said before, we battled back against a good team. So you know it’s unfortunate we didn’t get the fourth (point) in two nights, but there’s another (game) on Tuesday.”

- Jordan Nolan on earning a point: “I thought we had a strong game. I think we deserved a little better fate, but you know, we’re working on our team game, getting ready for playoffs, and making that extra push here at the end of the season. I think we’re doing good.”

- Nolan on the intensity difference: “I thought everything was going good tonight. You know, the crowd was into it. You could hear the LA fans really getting us going. You know that obviously gets us excited for the game, gives us a little extra motivation, and it was a fun game.”

- Nolan on the positives the team will take from the game: “I just thought we had a strong game. All four lines were going, all the D were going, Joe (ed. note – Joe is the team’s nickname for Jonathan Bernier) had a good game, and we’re starting to come together here. Everybody’s rolling and we’re getting ready for playoffs.”

Now for some classic Doughty comedy…

  1. That’s why I think they should change the format to a 2 VS 1 Starting at the red dots and defender at center Ice. At least this way it will be exciting to watch, Shootouts have become so boring to watch. I really wish the NHL would look into a 2 VS 1 instead of a shootout… There are no shootouts in the Playoff’s, And why is this? Because the NHL doesn’t want a game decided by who was better in the shootout in the playoff’s, But that’s okay in in non-playoff games.. BS

    Please change the format since your changing the playoff format… I think that it would be much more fun watching teams score on 2 VS 1 using they’re skills, Then on Crapshoots!!
