Instant quotes – Dustin Brown after Kings home opener

Kings captain Dustin Brown following the team’s 3-1 loss to the visiting New York Rangers

On the game not being the start that the Kings wanted:

“I thought we had a good first, but dead period in the second. No energy. Playing from behind again for the third consecutive game which is… stuff to do.”

On if there was any talks of changes coming into to tonight’s game:

“No. It’s more just about playing our game. We didn’t have enough energy in our game. When we don’t have that energy, you can really see it. Like I said, that second period we had no energy and it trickled into the third. If we play our game the way it’s supposed to be played, it’s a hard game for the other team.”

On the challenges of working new guys like Matt Frattin into the lineup:

“There’s really not a ton of new guys. That wasn’t an issue tonight. I thought Fratts played well. It’s just about energy and executing and we just didn’t have the energy tonight, which is the responsibility of the players to be ready.”

On the frequency of line changes:

“As a player, you go out there and you play your shifts.  I think we were trying to generate more offensive chances and energy and sometimes jumbling the lines will do that.”
