Kings forward Jeff Carter isn’t among the most talkative players in the dressing room, and he doesn’t often give insightful answers when he does speak to reporters. However, he cut to the heart of the Kings’ troubles after a 5-2 loss Sunday to the Winnipeg Jets.
Said Carter:: “I do not even think it was close to be honest with you. We know what to expect coming in here. We have played here for the last four or five years. We did not play near close to what we should be playing to even come close to getting two points. We need to get going. We are in a tight race and every game for us right now is a playoff game, and we need to get our level up.”
The Kings face the Oilers on Tuesday in Edmonton to conclude a two-game trip.
