Jeff Carter isn’t the most talkative player in the Kings’ dressing room. He often skips out before speaking to reporters. It’s not that he’s a bad quote or anything, but he simply avoids the crush of tape records and video cameras more often than not. That changed after he scored two goals in the Kings’ streak-busting 3-1 victory Saturday over the Vancouver Canucks at Staples Center.
Here’s a sample of his postgame comments:
“I gave him (linemate Dwight King) a yell and he made a heck of a play there (passing the puck for the go-ahead goal). That’s what he’s been doing lately for us. He’s an unbelievable player when he skates like that and uses his size. He’s got more skill than people think. I gave him one yell and he looked up.”
“We had some chances in St. Louis (a 5-0 loss Thursday). I should have had two goals. Hit a post and got robbed on another one. … We kept working. We know we have to keep working and battling and things are going to come around.”
