Stadium Series: Kopitar and Brown talk Kings 3-0 loss to Ducks

Kings forwards Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown had the following to share after dropping their Stadium Series game 3-0 to the ‘visiting’ Anaheim Ducks on Saturday…

Dustin Brown on the experience:

“Overall, the experience was good. Obviously the results are disappointing. To be apart of a game like this is always, I think, pretty cool for the coaches, the players, and everyone involved.”

Brown on how to start winning again:

“Well, it’s one of those things… we have to find ways to score goals. I thought tonight we had a lot of really good chances- tips, rebounds. We just have to bear down on our chances. We had opportunities to score goals today and we didn’t. We have to just keep going. The season can be a grind and it’s going to take 20 guys every night. That has to be our mentality going forward.”

Brown on the Kings’ resilience:

“The belief system in this room is what has gotten us this far. We understand as a group that we need to find ways to get points. Like I said, I have 100% faith in this team to figure it out.”

Anze Kopitar on the outdoor game experience:

“It was exciting, obviously, playing on a stage like this in front of all those people. It was fun but definitely not the outcome we wanted.”

Kopitar on what the Kings need to do to prepare for the upcoming division games:

“Just work on our game, work on stuff that usually make us successful. We have to obviously play with desperation now, because we’ve dropped, what is it five in a row now? So, we better get back on the winning track.”

Kopitar on his plan for the penalty shot:

“I dont know, I just made up my mind as I went in. I saw the five-hole but I shot it too high.”
