    Gabe Vilardi & Todd McClellan Post Game Quotes 3/3/21

    Doughty Video Interview & More on LA Kings Insider - click here

    Gabriel Vilardi
    On the feeling on the bench after two goals against in 13 seconds in the second period:

    On the bench, it’s tough. You just get out there, and right away they score another one, so it’s a double-blow. It sucks, but we outshot them, I thought we played pretty well honestly. Obviously, there’s still a lot of things we can clean up, and we’ll see that tomorrow, probably, in video, but this one kind of sucks, honestly.
    On the way the team played 5-on-5 in the first and third periods:
    I thought we didn’t play too badly. If you look at the shots, it was like wow, we were all over them, and then there’s that 13-second span, that goal ends up killing us. Overall, I thought we played pretty well, but we’ve got to find ways to score goals here, you can’t expect to win every game scoring two goals. Quickie and Cal, they’re both unreal, but we’ve got to score goals and find a way to score more goals. It can’t just come from Kopi’s line, I’m speaking about my line in general, we’ve got to find a way to score goals out here. There’s a lot more we can do I think.
    On Andreas Athanasiou’s skill move, and near goal, in the third:
    Yeah, that’s exactly what it is. He’s a guy who can skate fast, he can shoot the puck well, underrated passing ability too. He has really good hands, it was a great move by him, it’s too bad he didn’t finish it off, but yeah it was pretty cool, you don’t see that too often. That’s something he’s got for sure.

    Todd McLellan
    On if tonight’s result was due more to Raanta’s performance, or the Kings’ play in the second period:

    It’s a good question. First of all, you’ve got to tip your hat to their goaltender, he played well, but we also made him look well sometimes. Our second-period performance wasn’t very good, in fact, we weren’t real sharp for a lot of the night. If you think of the opportunities they had, even before they scored the first goal, coming off of our tape, opportunities to move the puck out of our zone, advance it even 10 or 15 feet and get the momentum going the other way, we were just slow again with pucks. We spent the last two days in practice trying to pick the pace up with puck movement, and coming out clean, and it bit us again tonight.
    On the team’s penalty kill tonight:
    Obviously, our penalty kill let us down tonight. We made two critical mistakes and they capitalized on the mistakes that we saw last year in our penalty kill. We think we’ve corrected them and they creep back in, so we’ve got work to do there. Our inability to get clears was something we were really disappointed in. We couldn’t get fresh bodies out because we didn’t get the puck all the way down. We won faceoffs, they kept pucks alive when it’s coming off of our tape, so our overall quarterback rating would be very poor tonight. Whether it’s the passing part of it, or just the clearing part, just to a man we were poor.
    On the team’s resilience in fighting back, with an 18-4 SOG advantage in the third:
    I think it’s in the DNA of this team, prior to me even getting here. The five veterans who won Stanley Cups, they have that in them. It just sprinkles and spreads through and it makes our job as coaches much easier when you have those types of people with that quality already in them. Every time somebody asks me that question, there’s the other side of the equation. 3-0 Minnesota, 3-0 Minnesota, 3-1 Arizona. It’s great that we have that trait of crawling back and playing hard, but why are we getting to three on the wrong end of the stick so quick? We’ve got to figure that part out.

    Tonight’s Poll Question:

    NEW MULTI-POINTS-POSSIBLE QUESTION

    The Kings had 18 SOG in the 3rd period on Weds. for a game total of 42 SOG.
    Part 1 - How many total SOG will the KINGS have tonight?
    Part 2 - How many total SOG will the BLUES have tonight?

    +/-2 = 1 point, +/- 1 = 2 points, dead on = 3 points (per team, so a possible 6 points if you're really lucky!)

    FIRST BITCHES

    Blues / Crowns will both have 33 SOG

    And now I hate the Calgary Flames a little less because Daryl Sutter is back coaching that team.
