Todd McLellan
On the intensity in tonight’s game, and if it felt like a playoff level of intensity

It did, and I thought our guys did a good job. They were prepared for it, it’s going to be that way until the end of the season. Our group, the group that we have playing right now, did a real good job tonight. We had to scratch and claw to come back, it’s disappointing we didn’t get the point when the second game started, the shootout game. As far as the 60 minutes, finding guys to contribute, I thought we did a real good job.
On how he felt the group handled the “track meet” style of hockey in the second period
It’s not something we want to get into, but at least on the bench, it didn’t feel as track meet-ish as it did for the fans. There were some up and down plays going both ways, but I didn’t feel it like that.
On it that was the type of game the Kings want to play, with puck possession
That’s the kind of game we want to play, yeah. If you’re following us, watching us, on our team you have a pretty good idea of how we want to play. That’s called identity. We have to play that way, no matter who we play against, where, when or how, to have a chance at success. When we get away from it, Seattle, it comes back to bite us. We tried to play to our identity tonight and we probably earned a point because of it.
On the decision to go with 11 forwards and 7 defensemen
Edler has done a lot of work to get himself back into the lineup and he deserved to play. We liked the idea of having the four-center hole open, try to potentially get some of the things we wanted in the game. We had, and still have, a number of inexperienced D back there, that had to face three centers that are as good as anyone in the league. Edler’s presence, his calmness and his veteran leadership is something that we needed back there.
On Quinton Byfield’s game, and the play of his line tonight
I thought that line played one of their better games, since we put them together. They spent time in the offensive zone, they checked well, they used their size, their speed when they had to. Q shot the puck, there’s no magic. The puck has to go off your stick and towards the net to have a chance to score. He did shoot it, and it was good for him to get rewarded.
On getting the two goals in a span of 14 seconds
The first one was the big one, the ability to come back right away. We’ve had that in our DNA, we bump up after goals quite quickly. To get the second one was obviously huge, those two minutes offensively earned us a point tonight. We got goals from Kaliyev and Grundstrom, who played on a line without a center, they were a little bit of misfits but they contributed, and our third-line center got us one. They did a real good job.
On if it was difficult to lack “production” from the top players tonight
Depends how you describe production. Goals? They’ll score. They played 22, 23 minutes a night against two Hart Trophy winners. Yeah, they got on the scoreboard but they made it hard for them. When you use the word production, I might have a different description of it, or a different definition.
