Dustin Brown – “We didn’t make any plays in the third period”

Brown v KeslerComments from Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown following the Kings 4-2 loss to the Ducks in Anaheim on Friday night…

On his frustration:

“Frustration… We understand what makes us successful. We made really good plays low when coming out of our zone in the first two and we didn’t make any plays in the third period. We were playing a lot more d-zone. There’s not time to be frustrated. WE have games to win. So we move on and get ready for Winnipeg.”

On the overall game:

“I think the difference in the night was we made really good plays coming out of our zone in the first two periods. Then we didn’t handle the pressure they put on in the third coming down the walls and as a result, they get turnovers and goals.”

On the team’s consistency:

“Win eight in a row and then we lose two and you guys think its consistency. It’s just playing our game. We didn’t play our game for a full 60.”

On how quickly the game changed:

“That’s the National Hockey League. If you don’t play 60 good minutes then you’re not going to win a game.”

On if tonight was an unlucky game:

“I wouldn’t consider it unlucky. The Ducks are a good team and there is a reason that they’ve won the division a couple of years in a row now. A part of it is how we played. I think the longer the season goes on, the less luck plays a part. Lucky teams aren’t generally down and out.”

On their play in the first two periods:

“I don’t think we managed the puck very well tonight. I don’t think we managed the puck very well tonight. I thought we made some good plays coming out of our zone, which allowed us to relieve the pressure but when we’re a really good team we move the puck really quickly and we’re really connected coming out of the zone. We weren’t doing that tonight. Part of it is our passing is a little off and part of it is they’re a good forechecking team and we to learn – not learn – but handle the pressure better as wingers and center s and defensemen.”

On the Ducks’ comeback:

“I would imagine they have one of the better records for come from behind victories. (Reporter: “This is their 10th.”) “I would imagine that leads the league or pretty close to the top. Again, ti’s about handling the pressure.”

On if the Kings learned anything from the loss:

“If you’re not learning, you’re not getting any better. So there is always individually and collectively as a team… I think we understand what we need to correct.”
