Not about tonight for Dustin Brown, about his next game

Comments from Kings captain following LA’s 4-2 win over the visiting Boston Bruins on Thursday night…

On the overall game:

“You know, we’ve been struggling scoring. It’s nice to give Quickie a little bit of a cushion.”

On having two goals in three games:

“I’m definitely feeling better about my game overall. I said this a few days or a week ago or so- it’s not about my last game, it’s about my next game.”

On how he is feeling:

“I was in a pretty bad funk. I don’t know if it was mental or physical or a mix of both. It’s one of those things you always wonder if you knew the answer, you wouldn’t be in it type of thing. After Christmas I feel like I’ve been playing better. Like I said, it’s not about tonight’s game, it’s about my next game for me.”

On the Kings being 13-2-2 against Eastern Conference teams:

“I think it correlates pretty well to overall the league. I’m not sure what the league standings are but I knew early on it was very one-sided. I think tonight, Boston is probably one team int eh east that seems like a west team to me. It’s much more physical, more grinding. A lot of the east teams,t hey’re just maybe faster skating, skilled teams with open ice. The west is, you know, all the teams are pretty much the same except for maybe, I think, Chicago is probably the only one that plays a different style. Id on’t think there’s many teams that play their style, period.”

On Jeff Carter getting six shots in the first period:

“He’s always one of those guys. That’s why he scores 30-40 goals a year is he shoots the pucks. Even when he doesn’t shoot the puck a lot, he has one of the best releases in the league and he’s able to get shots off very quickly and very hard. It’s not an easy thing to do, especially when you don’t have a lot of time and space. He’s one of the best player I’ve played with when it comes to that type of shooting and he’s a goal scorer. That’s what we need for him.”

On Jonathan Quick’s strong play since returning from injury:

“Being out for seven weeks – even his first game back – it seemed like he didn’t even miss a game. That’s impressive and a credit to him doing the work that he needed to do to be ready. That’s why he’s the best goalie.”
