WCF Game 3 morning skate – comments from Jarret Stoll

Jarret Stoll’s comments from LA Kings morning skate, in advance of Game 3 vs. the Blackhawks…

On Game 3:

“There’s not much room for error anymore, got to find out way, play well. Home or away is not the issue here. The issue is playing the right way and not giving up too many quality scoring chances. Bearing down on our opportunities, get more opportunities, a lot of things.”

On the Kings’ biggest worry tonight:

“There is no worry, just making sure everyone’s ready. Personally, get yourself ready. Everybody be a little bit better so the whole team can be better.”

On what playing ‘your game’ means:

“We have to win a game, that’s what we have to do. I don’t care how we do it, we have to win a game, that’s it. Find a way to do it again. We’ve done it in the past, we know that. You can draw on those experiences but you have draw on them the right way to make it happen. And we have to, have to make it happen.”

On Mike Richard’s being out:

“Yeah, it’s just one of those things. It’s tough, we definitely miss him, but we have to have guys that step up and play better when guys are out. Guys did it when I was out, guys have to do it when Mike’s out, it’s no different, when Greener (Matt Greene) was out, a lot of guys. You’re not a good team unless you do those kind of things, and we’re still playing so I think we’re a pretty good team. So we have to battle through it.”

On if Quick is the type of player who will come back even stronger after the last game:

“Yeah, I think we’ve seen that before. He’s a pretty focused guy. Narrow mind-setted kind of guy. Not too many things bother him. We expect his best tonight. We have to be better in front of him. That’s no secret. You can’t rely on your goaltender as much as we have. Have to make their guy work a little bit harder in their net. That’s definitely one of the things we want to do. I think he’s made some good saves, played well, but we got to make him work a lot harder.”
