Post game: Kopitar wants more from the Kings

Kopitar Kings 2013
Comments from Kings center Anze Kopitar following the Sharks OT victory in Game 3 on Tuesday night…

On tonight’s game:

“We had some chances, but it wasn’t enough. We’re going to have to come back in a couple of days and throw everything at them. Our backs are against the wall. It’s really coming out and giving it our best.”

On the Kings play in their zone:

“I think it was better than the two games before, but not to our standards.”

On if there is a sense of shock being down 3-0:

“I don’t know about a sense of shock. It’s certainly not satisfying. We’ve all won here and we know how it feels and we’ve been on the other end where we’ve lost. We have to regroup and take it one game at a time.”

On losing in overtime:

“It doesn’t really matter. Lost the game and have to win the next one.”
