Drew Doughty (video) Anze Kopitar & Todd McLellan 2/26 Post Game Quotes

Watch Drew Doughty’s Post Game Interview Here

Anze Kopitar on the team’s play early and the goals against that followed
It was just a couple tough bounces really. There wasn’t a whole lot of stuff that we didn’t like in the first period and then in the second period, just sometimes bounces don’t go your way. We realize that you’ve got to play for your bounces too and tonight it just didn’t go for us.
Kopitar on the five-minute power play and his takeaways from that sequence
We had chances. Yeah, you can always pick out some stuff when you need score, when you’re not getting on the board, especially early in the game like that. We had some chances, we had some looks, we didn’t score.
Kopitar on if a rarely-seen penalty can rattle a team at all
I don’t think so. I mean, we were getting on a five-minute power play, so there’s not a whole lot of time to be rattled, if there is at all.

Todd McLellan on his overall takeaways from tonight’s game
Obviously disliked the result, I thought we were five or six players shy of having an opportunity to win. I’m not talking about the goaltender, I’m talking about positional players that just weren’t sharp enough, they didn’t make the plays they needed to make. They had opportunities to make them, it wasn’t like they were under siege. Then, on the other side, what I liked, I thought we had some players that were ready to play, but it just goes to show when you’re playing the cream of the crop in the league, you can’t have anywhere from six to seven guys have really off nights and we had them.
McLellan on the start tonight and where he felt things changed from there
When we got off the ice after the first period, we were in our end really three times. We turned the puck over once at the blue line, took a penalty off of it and now they’re coming after us. We turned the puck over on a clean breakout, an opportunity to get going the other way and maybe have an out-numbered rush, then it’s in our net. We had one other turnover where we survived and killed it, that was it. That’s not a bad start against the New York Rangers in this building. Then, after that, it was more of the turnovers and sloppy play that led to the goals.
McLellan on facing a team that is skating 3-4 players shorter than usual
It actually makes it harder for us. They had to piecemeal lines together, so it was hard for us to figure out who was coming and going and when we want to play four, they were playing three. You can see our fourth line again took it on the chin tonight, unfortunately. I think some nights, you can’t go 82 games like that, but some nights a three-line team can benefit you. The players on their three lines are pretty damn good players, so they were on the ice a lot.
McLellan on if he felt the five-minute power play was a turning point in the game
I think it was a turning point. The five-minute power play, even with clean ice coming out in the second half of it, you don’t get much off of it. Then, the building gets energized and they get hungry and scored right after it. It was certainly a turning point.

Thank you, Susan et al!

Even after hearing him express similar thoughts for years, the Kopitar quotes still annoy the hell out of me. Screw the bounces, Kopi! Take personal responsibility and admit you make your own luck. Just once I would like to hear him say, “It’s my fault as leader. I sucked…” They lost because they couldn’t score on the 5-minute PP. Simple as that.

GKG!!!

Lol, that'd be something.

Kopi's easy going, even keel demeanor is who he is and, by extrapolation, who the team surrounding him has become. God knows we all love the Captain, but there are times I would like to see the whole team be be more responsive to in-game situations and push back harder when things start to get rough.
