Jeff Carter on his goal and Kings loss to Wild

Following the Kings 2-1 loss in Minnesota on Tuesday, here’s what Jeff Carter had to share…

– On his goal: “I just came off the bench.  Good play.  I know Richey was out there.  I’m not sure who the other winger was, but they’re battling hard low, and like I said, I just came off the bench and they just kind of lost me.  It was one of the only times that we actually got on the forecheck and stopped pucks up, and you know…”

– On what the problem with the team was in the first two periods: “I think we just got outworked, we turned pucks over, we weren’t skating.  They were the hungrier team, and they won all the battles.”

– On it being a case of just playing a more desperate team: “Yeah, this was a pretty important one for us too.  Should have been ready, right?  We needed these two points, and there’s no excuses.  We need to be ready.  We better be ready tomorrow.”

– On if it’s good having another game so quickly: “Yeah, it’s always good.  Obviously we need to learn from this, but it’s nice that we get to go right back at it tomorrow, and now it’s a really big two points.”

– On his body holding up well after the large amount of ice time tonight: “I didn’t even really notice it too much.  I thought we were rolling them pretty good.  So I’m not sure what it looked like from up there.”
