Muzzin and Stoll – morning skate Game 3

Following the Kings’ Game 3 morning skate, here’s what Jake Muzzin and Jarret Stoll shared with MayorsManor…


On what he did yesterday to prepare for tonight:

“Oh, just get your rest and a good meal, you know what I mean?  Just relaxed a little, went and watched a movie, had a  good dinner, and got a good night’s sleep.  That’s about it.”

On how he evaluates his game so far:

“Um, pretty good.  I mean playoff hockey…NHL playoff hockey was new to me, and I think I’ve adapted well to it.”

On if he’s felt more comfortable as the games have gone on:

“Yeah, game two I thought I was better at being ready for their pace of play and stuff like that.  I’m ready to go tonight.”

On if he’ll be watching the Kentucky Derby:

“Kentucky derby?  I don’t know what the hell that is.”


On what he did yesterday to prepare:

“Snagged about 25 bottles of water.”

On if he cares for the term ‘must win’ heading into tonight:

“No, I don’t like it.  I don’t use it really.  I think it’s just a matter of us bringing our best game.  I think we know that if we bring our best game, that it will be good enough.  You know, we chased the game way too much in games one and two.  I think it’s about time they started chasing us a little bit.  We played parts of games in St. Louis, not full games by any means.  So it’s obvious why we’re down two-nothing.”

On the difference in Sutter’s approach this year given the different results:

“Nothing.  Nothing at all.  He’s the same black and white guy that he always was.”

On Doughty saying Sutter has been upset with the team:

“He’s always upset with us.  There was only one day last year where he wasn’t upset with us, and we all know when that was.”

On if he’ll be watching the Kentucky Derby:

“No, I’ll be napping and doing my game day routine.”
