Quotes collected from Kings captain Dustin Brown in the L.A. locker room after the team’s 2-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York…

On if it’s disappointing that they didn’t close the series out tonight:

“I don’t know about disappointment. It’s an opportunity lost, but again, we park it and get ready to go.”

On having eight points in the last eight games:

“I don’t worry about points. I just try to play my game and that stuff takes care of itself. I think, individually, we can be better and collectively, we can be better. So, it starts with me.”

On their third period effort:

“We had some good chances in the third. Again, we have to put ourselves in better situations.”

On if he believed bounces didn’t go their way:

“Again, I think if we clean up our play, you make your own bounces this time of year. We had chances that we didn’t put in the back of the net. Again, we make and break your game here. We need to be better in certain areas of our game.”

On if they expected Henrik Lundqvist to play how he did tonight:

“We’re not really fixating on how they’re playing, its about how we play. He played well for them tonight, but we need to make it harder on them.”

On if his goal was a momentum swing for the Kings:

“We had a few good shifts right there after, and they held the fort. It’s about generating more momentum. We have to just park it and go.”

On the two pucks that stopped on the goal line:

“Happens.”

On what he thinks the team needs to improve on:

“I think we could be harder. It’s the physicality, probably. I’m not talking about big hits. I’m talking about puck battles and stick battles in front of the net. Getting in front of Lundqvist more. I think physicality, the physical part of the game, is very broad. It’s not just about body contact. It’s about battling in the dirty areas, and we can do better there. We weren’t sharp with our passes early.”

On if physicality was talked about in the locker room:

“That’s our game, it’s not something that needs to be harped on, per say, but we’re well aware that we can do better in that area.”

On if it was frustrating to have so many shots but not being able to score:

“It’s not frustrating, it’s more we need to do that more. We grind away.”
