Jeff Carter instant quotes after Kings 4-3 OT win

On the first period:

“We got our power play rolling pretty good in the first there. A couple quick ones to give us a little bit of cushion. I think we maybe sat back a little bit in the back end a little bit. You’re not always going to be pretty. We stuck with it, and a wins a win.”

On if there was talk on changes needed:

“I wouldn’t say so much changes. I think we talked about executing better and our game plan. We didn’t really have to change much. If you execute better, you’re going to make better plays, win more battles, score more goals, and you’re going to win games, right?”

On having Daniel Carcillo on his line instead of Matt Frattin:

“Fratty and Car Bomb are real similar plays and they’re both hard-nosed guys that are going to get on the forecheck and create turnovers;. I think Dan stepped in real well and got in on the forecheck for us and was banging some bodies and creating some turnovers. I thought it was good.”

On the Kings’ six power plays:

“I thought we had a better effort. When you’re on the puck and banging bodies and working to win battles, you draw penalties. They have to haul you down- holding, slashing, whatever it is. I thought we did a better job of just getting them.”

On his game-winning goal:

“They just left me all alone. We saw it on the power play before, Brownie was sitting by the net for 30 seconds all by himself. I knew if Rick [got] a shot through, I’d have to get a stick on it, because I’d have a lot of time.”
