Game 7: Anze Kopitar after Kings eliminate Ducks

Kopitar Game 7 Kings Ducks
Anze Kopitar post-game comments…

On what makes the team so confident in Game 7:

“…A sense of comfort, too, even though we got obviously down in the first series and being down in this series, too. We play our best hockey when our backs are against the wall. We’ll get to enjoy this one tonight and start getting ready for Chicago.”

On playing in Teemu Selanne’s last game:

“It was great. Obviously, we didn’t get the chance to think about it until the last couple of minutes. It’s great. It was an honor for me to play against him. With the Kings and Ducks down here, we play quite often. I’ve seen a lot of stuff from him.”

On the Western Conference rematch:

“Hopefully payback, yeah. We haven’t talked about Chicago or anything yet, obviously. We’ll start preparing tomorrow.”

On being 0-3 against the Hawks during the regular season:

“They’re the defending Stanley Cup champs. We’re going to be have to be on top of our game.”

On why the Kings play so well in elimination games:

“Just a sense of urgency and desperation. Mix everything together and we seem like we play our best hockey.”

On getting to three Conference Finals in a row:

“We’re not playing for the Conference Finals, so. It feels good now but we have one goal in mind. It’s not a secret.”

On having a good start tonight:

“We were talking about good starts. You guys have been blowing up with whoever scores the first goal wins the game, so. We figured that we were going to do that pretty quick.”

On having a five goal lead:

“That’s a little bit better, yeah I think. Playing with a three goal lead or a five goal lead, it’s better than a one goal lead.”
