Kings tie club points streak, talk 3-2 shootout loss to Sharks


Although they lost 3-2 in a shootout Wednesday night, the Kings have now recorded at least one point in 11 straight games, tying the club record. Jeff Carter, playing in just his second game since returning with a foot injury, scored only 18 seconds into the first period. However, it wasn’t enough, as Sharks captain Joe Thornton scored in the eighth round of the shootout to beat LA. The game also marked the 11th straight one-goal game between the two clubs.

Before catching their flight back home, here’s what was being said in the Kings locker room…

– Coach Darryl Sutter on the overall game: “I thought we had a good first period. We did what we wanted, and thought that we deserved to win the second period. They scored the second goal to put us down, but we did a good job in the third. Tied it up.”

– Sutter on Thornton and Brent Burns: “It’s not easy. They’re big guys that hang on to the puck. That’s pretty much it.”

– Anze Kopitar on the overall game: “I thought it was pretty intense. We got off to a good start, and then I thought we had a good second period. We were down after the second and battled back and went pretty deep in the shootout, but this time around they took it.”

– Kopitar on Thornton and Burns: “They’re big strong bodies, and it’s tough to contain them when they protect the puck. I thought that we did a pretty good job of containing them, and making sure we didn’t spend extended defenses on them.”

– Ben Scrivens: “Obviously we came out on the wrong end of it. I need to try and find a way to make some more saves in the shootout, but it’s some skill guys so it’s a learning experience… Obviously we’ll take every point we can get, but we’re not satisfied by any means. With three out of four [points on the road trip], we have a team that expects to win, and we have a team that can. We’ve got to find a way and it starts with me making a few more saves in the shootout.”
