Anze Kopitar (audio), Alex Iafallo, & Todd McLellan 4/2 Post Game Quotes

Listen to Anze Kopitar’s Post Game Interview Here

Alex Iafallo on the feeling of clinching a playoff berth for the second straight season
It’s huge, that’s what we’ve worked for all year and I’m glad we could do it tonight and look forward to that. We got a few games left so we’ve got to keep keep going strong and move towards the playoffs.
Iafallo on the team’s defensive play tonight after weathering an early storm
Everybody sacrificed and I feel like it all started with Korpi, he made some huge saves obviously. A lot of guys had good sticks and good blocks, I think it was just a good team effort.
Iafallo on being a versatile player who can contribute in all situations
Yeah, just trying to flip the switch, whether it’s penalty kill or power play, just trying to do as best as I can. They do a great job with video and stuff for us, each team is different, so you’ve got to pay attention to who’s doing what.
Iafallo on the team’s penalty-killing efforts in tonight’s win
Yeah, it was really good. Really good effort by everybody, especially the d-men They were able to handle the forecheck, guys coming down and Korpi made a bunch of big saves on their power plays. It was just a big, big team effort tonight.

Todd McLellan on the feeling of clinching a playoff berth
I don’t want to say it’s a relief, because we’ve sensed that it’s been coming, but once you get that asterisk by your name you can you can breathe a little bit. That’s a hell of an accomplishment for our group.
McLellan on a full-team win over the Canucks tonight
I thought tonight was a tough night for us to play, we’ve had a lot of heavy games on this trip and to play back-to-back, short turnaround, it was a complete team win tonight. Sometimes you win because two or three players are stars, I thought tonight 20 of us played extremely well. We got our legs underneath us after the first 10 minutes and then we were pretty solid after that.
McLellan on Alex Iafallo’s versatility and value to the team as a whole
Yeah, he’s a very valuable player for us. Very trusting, a guy that you can put anywhere in the lineup, on any line. He cleans up a lot of messes and mistakes that are made, he anticipates well defensively and he can obviously put it in the net when he gets a chance.
McLellan on the team’s connectivity at the defensive end of the rink tonight
A lot of times coaches talk about being connected offensively and breaking out, we were connected defensively. We did a good job of reading off each other, our gaps were pretty good and there wasn’t a lot of lazy or late arriving people. They were committed to getting there on time when they could. It didn’t mean we were perfect but when they could, they did their jobs.
McLellan on Arthur Kaliyev moving up in the lineup and getting rewarded with a goal
Yeah, very much so. He;s dangerous when the puck’s on his tape in the offensive zone and he showed why again today. Shoot and follow and he put another one in. He’s the one guy in our lineup that can do that often and got rewarded.

Really hope theres not a b2b shut out by these guys
 
I really don’t need 4 guesses. Sean Walker will score the first goal for the Kings tonight.
My other choices are:
Anderson
Valardi
Bjornfoot

Thank you, Susan et al!

Can't help wondering which King will be targeted for injury by the goons from Edmonton. Mikey was targeted for the clean hits he delivered on Draisaitl in last year's playoffs because the fan base still wanted blood. Damn, I hope McDavid gets some special attention tonight.

GKG!!!
