    Todd McLellan Post Game Quotes 5/10/21

    Check out articles on LA Kings Insider Here

    Todd McLellan
    On the team’s checking and defensive effort tonight:

    I thought we were, for the most part, responsible, we broke the puck out of our end quite well tonight, which was a good thing. The first goal they scored on, we missed on the backcheck that we should have picked somebody up, but other than that, there weren’t a lot of mistakes defensively. In overtime, the puck bounced over Kempe’s stick and they took advantage of it, but defensively, fairly satisfied with the game. Offensively, I thought, for a team that really has to work hard to score, I thought we got cute, we wanted to make plays when we should have been shooting the puck and it probably cost us the game. When we play direct, when we play North – South, when we play to the paint, we have a better chance of winning. When we play East – West, when we play through the slot, one side of the rink to the other, I don’t think it favors our team. We’re still trying to figure that out, eventually we’ll get it.
    On what he liked specifically on the defensive end, and limiting the Blues’ shot totals:
    As I said earlier, I think we broke the puck out fairly well tonight. Our neutral zone set up our breakouts, and we were able to come out of our zone, we weren’t under siege for very many shifts and therefore they didn’t get that “shoot and get it back” mentality. St. Louis isn’t a volume shooting team to begin with, they like to hold onto the puck and set up for one really good shot, and I thought we defended well against it, but the big part was the breakout part. We’ve been stressing that lately, working into position and moving the puck quickly enough. I thought we did a good job and that helped us with our defensive play.
    On if he’s confident that the system and structure will flourish as the team develops and adds talent to the roster:
    We have work to do. We’ve got to sit down and evaluate the players that we have here. I know they’re not all going to be back, we’ve got to go out and recruit, find some other players that can help us. I think we have a lot of work to do still. We’ve got to keep the veteran players – obviously Quickie and Brownie haven’t been playing in these games due to injury – we’ve got to keep them at a high level and get them back there when the season starts next year. Our younger players, that have been in the league now for a year or two, must show improvement. They have to begin to carry more of the load, offensively, defensively, game management, it’s a must that they graduate and move on to the next level, break through. That’ll be a big challenge for us as a team. If we get that breakthrough and we augment the team a little bit with some players, we’ll be okay. If we don’t get the push through to the next level from a lot of players, it’ll take us more time. We need it from them, and they’ll be directed that way heading into the summer.
    On what it meant to have the fans behind the team one last time this season:
    For us as an organization, it meant a lot. Obviously a messed up year for everybody outside of sports, but for us in particular, with hockey, having to play in front of empty buildings, empty arenas, over and over again, finally getting people back in made a huge difference, you could feel the energy. I think as the [games] went on, our fanbase seemed to grow, or became more active in the games, maybe we gave them more to cheer about. I thought the last game, we could really feel it and tonight it grew even more. I thank our fans for showing up, I wish them a healthy summer and hopefully when we get back in here, we’ve got 20,000 people on opening night and it feels incredibly different. That lift that they can give us, we’ve missed for a long time.

    THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS PLAYED THE GAME THIS SEASON!! I hope you had fun even if you never made it to King of the Mountain.



    Previous Game’s Winners

    HUGE THANKS TO JAMMER FOR LISTING THE WINNERS FOR ALL MY CRAZY QUESTIONS THIS SEASON.

    Congratulations to the following Poster who was our only winner of the night by guessing Faulk as the last goal scorer of the season at Staples:

    Rusty

    Nobody had Barbashev for last penalty, and many of us would have scored with Wagner.
    Nobody guessed less than a total of 4 goals in any combination for the final score.

    Poll Win Totals

    CONGRATS TO LEFTYKING,
    who holds on as sole King of the Mountain for their 3rd win in the past 4 seasons.

    In case you’re wondering, srm1105 won last season (2019-20), and Lefty King came in 2nd place. In the 2018-2019 season, LeftyKing, srm1105, and jammer06 shared KOTM honors, with Rusty a close 2nd. In 2017-18, LeftyKing and srm1105 were the Kings of the Mountain, with hokiecat in 2nd place.

    I think we all know whose answers we’re copying next season…….

    Respect Lefty.

    Thank you Nyssa and Jammer for the great threads and questions.

    Let’s forget this year, I mean both the Kings play and me coming up 9 points short.
