Alex Edler (video), Anze Kopitar, & Todd McLellan 12/31 Post Game Quotes


Alex Edler Video Interview Here

Anze Kopitar on tonight’s game
I don’t think it got away, I think we were very much in the game. I thought we were doing some good stuff, we had some chances, we just didn’t come through today. It was a battle of special teams and we lost it.
Kopitar on the impact that special teams had on tonight’s game
Yeah, I mean, they got a power plant and a shortie. That turned out to be the difference, which is unfortunate, but sometimes that’s the way it goes.
Kopitar on not being able to take a game that was there to be taken
No, I mean, the game was right there, it’s not like we had a slip in the first or in the second, we just didn’t get the job done, that’s what it was.
Kopitar on Quinton Byfield joining his line over the last four periods
Q is very dynamic, obviously a big body and he can definitely make plays. This has been, what, four periods that we’ve been together and I’m sure we’re going to stick for a few more games. Hopefully we can find some chemistry and score a few goals.

Todd McLellan on if he felt tonight was a “letdown” from the win over Colorado
No, I don’t think was let down, I don’t think we had what it took to win. We didn’t have a lot of energy for whatever reason, maybe that was the Colorado thing and we weren’t real polished. I think you guys watched that early. In the first 10 minutes of the game we didn’t connect on many passes and when you don’t have energy and you’re not connected, you’re just spinning your wheels in the mud. It felt like we could never get it going all night. We had spurts of good play and then we’d fall off a little bit, so we probably got what we deserved tonight.
McLellan on Jonathan Quick tonight and if he believes there was any “rust” in his game with “spot starts"
He made some good saves, it’s what it is. Whether it’s Jonathan Quick or anybody else, that’s the way it goes. There’s a ton of confidence in him, he’s obviously done it a million times throughout his career and he’ll continue to do it.
McLellan on the penalty kill tonight and over the last stretch of games
I think our penalty kill is improving, I think it’s much improved from where it was at the first quarter of the season. The group play and the reads, the reactions are there, we’ve got to get the job done though. We seem to give up one a night, in various ways still, so the number is not looking good, we’re giving up one a night, yet the penalty kill is improving. You might think that I’m insane, but that’s how we see it.
McLellan on where he believes things are at, bigger picture, entering 2023
I’ll answer for the organization, the team, we’re still putting things in place and we’re trying to keep our game growing. We shrunk a little tonight, we gave a little bit back, we all know that, but we’ve got to get back on the horse and ride it again. If there’s a horse in front of us right now, so be it, we’ve got to make sure that ours is in good shape and ready to run and that’s where we’re at.
McLellan on the statuses of Trevor Moore and Arthur Kaliyev
Trevor worked out yesterday or today, I haven’t got a report how well that went. He’s obviously not going to be playing for a few more days. Arty, same thing, he hasn’t skated since his injury. Those are two players that we won’t have for for a little while.

Thank you Nyssa!

No goal, 9:30 of the second

Don't stress the early start folks, they will be starting late with the Edler ceremonies no matter what. I haven't seen an official puck drop time yet but I'm guessing 7:27.
 
Thank you, Susan et al!

Let’s see… Dallas is a top team so that means the “good” Kings will show up?

GKG!!!

Playing a good team, let's see how the Kings and Copley respond. I hope they play well. And if they don't, do we blame Copley for giving up goals or do we blame the Kings defense?
