Comments from Carter and Clifford prior to leaving for St. Louis

Prior to flying to St. Louis today a few LA Kings shared some thoughts…

Jeff Carter on how Game 4 differed from the first three games:

“I think we’ve been getting better every game, and I think it again shows last night.  We were skating better and getting on pucks.  You know, using our forecheck to our advantage, and it showed in the end result.”

Carter on if there was any sense of panic after they gave up the two early goals:

“No, there was a couple quick ones there.  The first one there, not much Quicky could do there.  It bounced up pretty good there, and a tip in on a power play.  We’ve been in that position before, and these guys don’t…You know get too down on themselves.  We stayed calm, and we just chipped away.”

Carter on if he believes in momentum:

“Yes and no.  I mean to win a series, you have to win your home games.  We got a three game series here.  Two on the road, we gotta go into their building and win one.  So that’s the plan.”

Kyle Clifford on his thoughts about Game 5:

“You know we’re just getting ready for tomorrow.  It’s going to be a big matchup.  They’re going to come out hard, and we’re going to come out even harder.”

Clifford on playing in St. Louis before helps to prepare him for their building:

“Yeah, they got a pretty exciting crowd.  So we’re going to be able to expect that, and I think being there the first two games we already have our feet wet.”

Clifford on if he sees a more offensive or defensive game coming in Game 5:

“Well it’s the playoffs, you never know what’s going to happen.  They’re going to come out hard, and we’re going to come out hard and just get shots to the net, and try to score as many goals as we can.”

Thanks to the Kings’ PR staff for providing the audio used for the above quotes.
