Morning skate report – Brad Richardson on pressure of Game 3

Comments from Brad Richardson following the Kings’ morning skate in advance of Game 3 vs. the Chicago Blackhawks…

On if there is added pressure from missing guys in the lineup:

“No not really, just try to play your game. Obviously we want them in the line up, he’s a great player and hopefully he’s back soon. Everyone has to step up. Even when he was in the lineup, we still didn’t have a great effort. Everyone has to be better, doesn’t matter if it’s him out or whoever, we have to all play better. It’s got to start tonight.”

On the cliché of needing to play ‘your game’ – what is that for the Kings:

“I think it’s pretty obviously what our game is. It’s fore checking, getting in there physical, not trying to play the run and gun game like they play. We’ve played pretty well this season to get to this point. We’ve talked about it the last couple of games, you can say your game or whatever it is, but we just know we have to play better.”

On any concerns heading into tonight:

“No, there’s no concern, just go out and win. That’s it, it’s just a focus. We’ve been here before and it’s nice to be home, on home ice, and have a big effort from everyone.”

On the Kings losing at home being a let down:

“No. It’s never been brought up, no.”
