Robyn Regehr thoughts from Game 3 morning skate

Here’s what Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr shared with MayorsManor following the team’s morning skate in advance of Game 3 later tonight…

On if he cares for ‘must win’ being thrown around:

“Well I know guys do use it around here. I think you can word it any way you want. It’s a very big game. They’re focusing on the result there when they say that, but I think the important thing for us to do is to remember how you get to that result. You have to put in the right the amount of work. You have to do all the right things with all the details. You have to be, in my opinion, more focused on that type of thing. And the result, if you do the work and do the things properly, should take care of itself.”

On what he did yesterday to prepare for Game 3 tonight:

“Yesterday was all geared towards today. The preparation, not just the physical preparation, but more importantly the mental preparation. How you handle taking care of yourself, what you’re thinking about, all that. It’s all geared towards tonight and playing as well as you can as an individual and also as a team. So everything we do right now is all geared towards the game, and playing the game, and feeling great.”

On if he notices any changes in Sutter’s demeanor come playoff time:

“Maybe every now and again, but that’s just the way he is. He’s a demanding guy, and he always is that way, and he’s not afraid to challenge players and teams. Both individuals and together as a unit. So that’s something where he was challenging us two weeks ago for certain results that he thought that we should be getting that we weren’t. And you know he’s challenging us again. So the important thing for us is the response. How are you going to respond both as an individual and as a team, and I think we all know in here how we want to respond. Now the responsibility is up to us to go out there and do it.”

On if he’s become more vocal now that he’s been in LA for a while:

“No, there’s guys that talk in here before the game, and there’s guys that don’t. That’s part of their preparation and what they think they need to get ready for the game. I do like to speak a little bit, but I’m also not overly chatty. There’s guys that really like to talk. I think it’s all about making sure that we don’t miss anything as players in our preparation. If someone is going really well; we try to keep them going. If someone isn’t, then we try to help them get going. As a player and individual, you gotta make sure you’re going too.”

Tons of additional quotes from today’s morning skate are up on the homepage right now – featuring Drew Doughty, Anze Kopitar, Kyle Clifford, Jarret Stoll, Jake Muzzin and more.
