    Desjardins, Brown, Doughty 12/31 Postgame Quotes

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


    Willie Desjardins, on the feeling when Brown scored the overtime winner:
    
It was a good feeling. We knew we’d come in for a hard-fought game. I thought we played well early, they got some momentum in the third but it was nice to comeback and win in overtime.
    Desjardins, on shaking off the tying goal against and coming back to win, possessing the puck for nearly the entire overtime:
    
It was good, we won the draw, which helped and Toffoli made a good battle down low too, to keep the puck alive once we were in jeopardy of losing it. The guys played hard, it’s a tough building to win in.
    Desjardins, on whether it’s starting to feel like the team is playing to what it’s capable of:
    Yeah, we feel a little bit more confidence in our game, like we feel when we’re going in that we’ve got a chance to win every night and that’s a good feeling. We’ve had lots of tough games lately, every team you play, they’re a good team. Nothing’s ever easy.

    Dustin Brown, on his game-winning goal
:
    The puck just got chipped into our zone and we had a couple of guys changing, that I was changing for, and it’s kind of the way 3-on-3 overtime goes. They were trying to get a change but I was coming out of the blueline door, so that’s probably 30, 40 feet for them to change and I just got in behind them and went low blocker.
    Brown, on a number of breakaway goals for the Kings in 3-on-3 and whether that’s something they work on:
    You always try to catch guys off changing, that’s the most challenging thing. I mean, I’m pretty sure we had possession of the puck the whole 3-on-3, puck possession is all…you don’t want to give it up for a mediocre shot. You curl back, even go out of your zone, we even throw it to Quickie every once in a while, just to relieve pressure and keep the puck. We’ve been pretty good at it, ever since they implemented the 3-on-3. Those types of changes are hard, a lot of goals are the result of guys just trying to get off the ice.
    Brown, on the team finding ways to win during their most recent stretch of games:
    
I think, ultimately, what’s happening is we’re playing a lot better in our d-zone and that’s something we’ve been really good at for a really long time here. We weren’t very good for the first long while, the first part of the season and we haven’t up nearly as many chances, nearly as many shots and as a result, I think it helps us win games. We’ve also had contributions up and down our lineup, much more consistently the last five or six games, so that’s another part of it.

    Drew Doughty, on getting the win tonight, after giving up the late goal
:
    We would’ve liked to have won it in regulation, obviously, but they got a lucky bounce on that goal, I don’t think anyone can disagree with that. [It was] a lucky bounce that went in and we stayed positive on the bench and we said “hey, let’s go win this one in OT”…actually, we wanted to win it with a few minutes left, we still had a minute left and we had some chances at the end, so we were hoping to win it there. It was a huge game for us, a big win, great game by everyone really. We could’ve played better but we played decent enough to win.
    Doughty, on five wins out of six and whether it’s starting to feel like what he knows the team is capable of being
:
    You know, on that winning streak we had before we lost last game and won tonight, we felt that we were playing so much better. You’re going to win games and not play well, maybe tonight we didn’t play our best hockey, but we felt like we were playing our best hockey in that stretch. When you’re playing your best hockey, it’s just so much fun, the confidence is flowing through every player on the team and we need to get back on another winning streak, because we dropped one last game to Vegas and then won tonight and we’ve got a big match against Vegas tomorrow.
    Doughty, on still being able to get a win when he didn’t feel they played their best game
:
    I thought we did some good things in the game tonight, but we didn’t do enough offensively, I think we had under 20 shots and that’s not very good, especially in an overtime game, we should have ten shots a period, or eight shots at least. It’s definitely a good feeling and our goalie’s going to steal us games every once in a while and they do. I think if you play well defensively, and your intentions are to do the right things, you’re going to get more wins than you’re not. You can kind of not be great offensively, and get a win, but if you’re not going to be great defensively, you’re going to lose the game no matter what. We seem to know how to play good defense in here, and if we keep doing that we’ll get more wins.

    Today's Poll Question:

    Fun Facts: Kopi scored his 299th goal this past Saturday against the Golden Knights,
    and last night was Quickie’s 299th win.

    The question isn’t about that.

    Which Kings player is going to score the FIRST KINGS GOAL of 2019? You can take 4 guesses, (you can also choose “no one in this game” as one of your 4 guesses)

    and, to recap from the 12/23 game, here are the 2 bonus questions - BUT, you had to make a guess in that GDT to be eligible for these bonus points.

    1) How many TOTAL HITS will be laid out by the Kings AND Golden Knights in these 3 games? The Golden Knights are averaging 27 hits per game, and the Kings are averaging 23. (+/- 5 will be a winner. Super-extra Bonus Point for anyone who gets it exactly correct)

    2) Who will be the top scorer (total points, goals + assists) in ALL 3 GAMES COMBINED? You can take 4 guesses, and if 2 or more players tie for most points, every correct guess will get 1 point.

    Take your best guesses in your post below.

    The only prize is the glory of seeing your name in the next GDT if you get it right.
