KINGS FORWARD PATRICK O’SULLIVAN:
(Re: game recap): “They’re a good team, obviously. Just look at their record; it’s pretty impressive. We showed that we are capable of playing with them throughout the entire 60 minutes. It’s going to give us some confidence and we thought we probably could have won the game, maybe should have won the game.”
(Re: game recap) “It shows we can play with the top team in the league and we had a lot of chances and we outshot them. It was a good game.”
KINGS GOALTENDER JASON LABARBERA:
(Re: game recap): “For sure we could have won. We had our chances. They’re the best team in the league right now for a reason and they found a way to win the game. That’s what makes the teams that are at the top of the league great, is they find ways to win.”
