Anze Kopitar
On what went wrong for the Kings in the second period that opened up the deficit

I mean, we just didn’t stick to the plan and they’re a skiled, explosive team that can make you pay on that occasion. We got off page for a few and it cost us.
On frustration seaping into the team’s game in that stretch
Yeah, obviously everybody cares in here, so it’s hard to be in this situation, but then again, it’s going to be everybody that’s going to pull us out of the situation. We saw the third period as a good indicator of what we have to do, play as a team and how we have to play, with how high of a intensity. That’s the only way we’re going to get out of this.
On getting three power-play goals, including two from his unit
That’s one, probably the only positive tonight, getting power-play goals. The third period was pretty good and obviously we’ve got to do more of that throughout the 60-minute game.
On the message to the group from him and team leaders during this stretch of games
Stick to the plan and bring your intensity, bring your energy on Monday. We’ll obviously try and put a 60-minute effort and win a game.

Todd McLellan
On how he saw the game get away from the team during the second period

We’re in a 2-1 game, had a breakaway shorthanded, didn’t score and then after that, we made mistakes that we talked about before the game that were defendable, correctable. The third one, the outnumbered rush where we stepped in on a puck and they scored and then the fourth one I thought was an unlucky one. Royzie went to chip the puck and he chipped it right into Patrick Kane for a breakaway. Then the real disappointing one is right at the end of the period, where we have an opportunity to gain a line and we don’t, so that’s what happened in a three-minute span. You throw a bad goal into the mix and an unlucky 5-on-3 and all of a sudden, you’ve given up five goals and we’re not scoring five. So, it’s pretty simple. The tenacity, I thought woe is us was our theme song after the second, but the tenacity in the third showed up and that was a positive sign, if we’re going to take anything out of it.
On if he saw frustration seep into the team’s game for the first time during that stretch
Of course, but the frustration part of it shouldn’t affect the outcome of the game. We’re allowed to be frustrated, it’s a tough battle, it’s hard. The other team gets in the way sometimes and you’re going to be frustrated. It’s not always going to be your way, but to make some of the mistakes were making, I don’t know if that’s frustration or just plain old not very sharp. It’s affecting us and then it affects everybody else in the group. So, still stuff to clean up.
On what was learned of the group in the third period, with the score 5-1
I didn’t learn anything, quite frankly, because I knew that’s in us. I don’t think we have a rollover factor one bit, so I can’t stand here and tell you I learned something. Had we done the other thing, and not competed and not played hard, then I would have learned something, so that’s a pretty simple answer.
On getting three power-play goals tonight
I thought our special teams were good. Yeah, we gave up a goal, 5-on-3, tough one, but I thought our special teams were good. 5-on-5 offense went away a little bit in the second period, but I thought we had our share of chances. It’s still the defending part, which should be our bread and butter, got away on us.
On the message to the group coming out of this game
We can’t make crap up, we’ve got to tell them where we are and we have to be honest with them. We’ve tried to accentuate a lot of the positives, because there are a fair number in the game, but when it’s all said and done, I think that each individual has to do some inventory-checking and making sure they’re bringing what they can. Not to do everything for the team, but just to clean their own game up a little bit and that’s what will get us out of it.
