Post-Game 1 – comments from Dustin Brown after Kings 2-0 win

Comments from Dustin Browm after the Kings’ 2-0 win in Game 1 over the visiting St. Louis Blues…

On the difference between St. Louis and San Jose:

“St. Louis was fast and big, but these guys are probably faster.  They make more rush chances.  They hold onto pucks.  It’s not the chip and chase game that it was against St. Louis as much.”

On how he felt about the overall performance:

“It was solid.  I think it’s always about just getting better at this time of year.  I mean there’s definitely things we can clean up.  We gave up 35 shots, and Quickie had to make some big save.  So we definitely have to clean up our D-zone.  They have some big strong guys that can control the puck down low.  I think it’s a matter of getting that initial contact and pinning and sealing.  That will go a long way in Game 2.”

On the importance of staying out of the box given the Sharks’ strong power play:

“Yeah, I mean we talked about it before the series.  They have a really good power play.  I think it’s important for us to…There’s going to be penalties.  Trampling on a guy.  Big, strong, physical plays.  They get called, we’re going to kill those.  It’s the O-zone plays.  The hooks, the holds, those undisciplined penalties.  Those are the ones we gotta stay away from.”

On if a two goal lead felt like a lot given the tight games with St. Louis:

“No, they were putting some pretty good pressure on in the second half of the third.  Your mentality is, you’re not giving up a goal.  So regardless of what the score is, I think this time of year our mentality as a team is preventing any goals.  But it doesn’t feel any different out there.”
