Anze Kopitar – morning skate Game 3

On what they need to do to win tonight:

“You know, once we get in their zone, we got on their D and were able to stop the puck in the offensive zone.  I think that’s when we’re at our best.  When we’re cycling in their zone, and try to take it to the net, and make plays off that.”

On if he feels the team is poised to open up offensively:

“Yeah, I think so for sure.  We’ve been close enough.  We’ve had some “A” chances that we didn’t score on.  So we realize we have to obviously score more, and give Quicky some help, and at the same time be a solid defensive team.”

On if he feels the key is getting to the front of the net more:

“Yeah you know, you’re making plays out there as they come.  So if that’s taking more shots, if they’re there I’ll take them.  I’m not going to shoot just to get my numbers up.  Once I’m out there it’s reading and reacting.  I still feel confident enough.”

On what he did yesterday to prepare:

“Just relax really.  Reload, I guess we came in at about two o’clock the other night.  Just try and get as much sleep as you can.  Get up and move around a bit.  Not be on the couch all the time.  So I think, at least I can speak for myself.  I move around a bit and be ready to go tonight.”

On if he’s checked in with his brother who’s playing in the World Championships:

“Yeah, I think we just lost today against Norway.  So that’s not a good start, but I’m sure they’ll bounce back.”
