…which you probably already knew by this point. I ended up being away all day, rather just part of the day as I previously thought. Anyway, I’ll attach the press release below and if I get interview files out of Austria, they’ll be up here as soon as possible.
I know everyone is hungry for injury information, but that’s the hardest thing to get at this point. All injury information must come from Marc Crawford, as deemed by Marc Crawford, and I have no way of getting in touch with him until the wheels touch down in North America. Certainly if I hear anything, I will be happy to post it. As far as I know, Frolov should be scheduled to practice tomorrow and play Saturday. That’s the timetable I was given. I have no idea what the situation is with Handzus.
LOS ANGELES Anze Kopitar scored the game-winning goal with 44 seconds remaining to give the Los Angeles Kings a 4-3 victory over Farjestad BK (Swedish Elite League) and win the Red Bulls Salute 2007 exhibition tournament in Salzburg, Austria.
Kopitar, who was named the tournament MVP, led all scorers in the tournament with five points (4-1=5), four goals, two power play goals and two game-winning goals. Michael Cammalleri collected four points (2-2=4) for the Kings and finished second in tournament scoring.
It was great to play well in front of my family and friends. When they are in the crowd you get a little extra boost, said Kopitar, who grew up in Jesenice, Slovenia, located about two-and-a-half hours away from Salzburg. We feel good about the win. The fans just expected us to come in here and win because we are from the NHL…but we played some good opponents and it was tough. In our locker room, we knew it would be tough.
