Jeff Carter on Sekera, Jones, and Ducks Forecheck

Carter vs Ducks Feb 2015Comments from Los Angeles forward Jeff Carter following the Kings 4-2 loss to the Ducks in Anaheim on Friday night…

On his overall thoughts following the last two games:

“I think we slowly we started to get away from our game a little bit, get away from the things that were winning us games previously. This is a tough one, Joner played really good for us tonight. He gave us a chance to get ahead and you know at this point of the year we’re blowing third periods, it’s tough to take cause you need all the points you can get right now.”

On the Anaheim forecheck:

“I think they did what they normally do, they’re just as by and physical as us and you know every time we play them they’re on the forecheck hard. They did a good job of it and you have to give the credit, they played a solid game. We weren’t really up to par tonight.”

On Sekera’s first game with the team:

“He’s solid. It’s I’ve done it a couple of times and it’s never easy to come in the middle of the year and new systems, new teammates. Maybe it helped him a little playing with Reg, cause they’re a little familiar together. It’s never easy, I thought he was solid. You know he’s going to get keep getting better and better as he gets more comfortable and kinda gets the system going a little more.”

On if he puts any meaning in tonight’s game:

“Not much really, Like I said, I think we were up 2-0 after two periods but I think a big part of that was the play of Joner. Made some big saves. We know we have to be better then we were the last couple games and we will be.”
