    Desjardins, Kopitar, Kempe 12/29 Postgame Quotes

    Read more quotes and articles at Jon Rosen's Blog here


    Willie Desjardins, on the team’s effort:
    
I thought we started a little sluggish – well, I thought the start wasn’t bad. I thought as the game went on we were a little sluggish in the second, but I thought we had a good third period. Right after Christmas, sometimes you get a little bit – they played well in the second. They took some parts of the game away on us, but I thought we came back in the third with a good effort.
    Desjardins, on whether the game is a “setback,” given the narrow margin for error:
    Any loss sets you back, for sure, but you’ve just got to move past it. It doesn’t matter – you always have to learn from what happened, but then you’ve got to move past and you’ve got to be ready for the next one. We just have to make sure we’re ready. We’ve got tough games. All these games are hard games. Like, that’s a good team. We’ve got to move on, and we’ve got to be ready for the next one.
    Desjardins, on the importance of the upcoming trip to avoid falling into a losing streak:
    It is, but it’s a battle. You have to be ready every night. Maybe we have a better second period – we just didn’t play well enough in the second. It wasn’t that I didn’t think the effort wasn’t there, we made plays that we shouldn’t have made. And then you go in the next games, and Colorado’s a tough place to win in, and so is Vegas. Our work’s cut out for us. We’re going to have to go hard.

    Anze Kopitar, on what Vegas did well that made it difficult to score:
    I think one of the areas they’re good at was forechecking. They didn’t give up much obviously coming their way. I thought the first two periods we didn’t play our best, but they played pretty well and kept playing, more often than not, in our own zone and that’s certainly not a recipe for success.
    Kopitar, on Sean Walker and Jake Muzzin leading the team in shots with five apiece:
    It’s great. I think our D-core is playing well right now.I think Sean, for being a rookie, is playing really well. He’s getting more comfortable with each and every game, but at the same time we’re going to need him to obviously step up and play like that for the rest of the year.
    Kopitar, on if today’s game is one that the team will shrug off:
    
Yeah, I don’t think you just shrug it off. We’re certainly going to look at some stuff, what we did wrong, what we did good, but yeah, the big thing now is we can’t let this one turn into two, three, and four, you know? Go onto Colorado and win a hockey game and obviously take it back with Vegas again. These are going to be two really big games and tomorrow again, we’ll get back to work and get ready for those two.
    Kopitar, on whether these types of losses have more impact because of the start to the season:
    Well, I mean it certainly resonates, but at the same time you have to have a short-term memory in this one. So, you know, we go 4-1, 4-1, 4-1, I’ll take that and then we’ll see where that takes us.

    Adrian Kempe, on playing on the wing instead of at center:
    
You get more comfortable after a couple games. It’s just a little different than playing center. I guess I get a little bit more pucks when I play center, and it’s just the position I prefer to play. But I try to do my best on the wing and have got to improve it.

    Thank you Susan. Happy New Year's Eve to ya and thanks for the final GDT of the year.

    That Fantenberg frozen moment picture is scary. Seems like he can get injured based on that angle of his skates huh?

    For the GDT Question... I'll say the GWG comes in the 1st period.

    Thanks again. Have a safe New Years everyone!
