Brown talks his performance, return of Quick and Kings win over Canucks

Kings captain Dustin Brown scored a goal and his team downed the visiting Canucks 3-1 on Saturday night. Vancouver is now 1-7 this season vs. the three California based NHL teams.

After the game, here’s what Brown had to share…

On the third period:

“It really wasn’t much different than the first or second. The difference is bearing on our chances. I felt like, especially in the second, we had a lot of really good chances and Luongo made some big saves for them. Finally we broke through. Part of it is just sticking to the program and grinding on them and wearing out their defensemen. They played four defensemen a lot of the game and over the course of the game we wore them down.”

On his goal:

“It’s just a room play. We get in on the forecheck. I think Stolly actually let’s it go, kind of a decoy, and stick gets it off the wall and shoots it. It was actually very similar to the goal I scored against them in the 2012 playoffs. A rebound off the back pad and I just find a empty area to get a rebound.”

On if tying the game gave him personal satisfaction:

“No. That’s what I’m expected to do. I think it’s just important to realize it’s just one game. When you have 40 bad games, one game doesn’t erase it. So I have to stay with it.”

On if having Jonathan Quick back was important mentally:

“I don’t know about mentally, but emotionally. When you get the best goalie in the world back in your line up, it always gives you a boost. We’ve been losing games and that’s not because Ben Scrivens or Martin Jones- it’s because we haven’t been playing good. So when you get a key player like Quicker coming back in the line up, it can give your team a boost. It didn’t look like he missed seven weeks that’s for sure.”
