EL SEGUNDO, CA — Let’s just say that the aftermath wasn’t pretty.

Indeed, the day after falling victim to a high stick to the face, courtesy of Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith, Los Angeles Kings forward Jeff Carter has definitely looked better.

“We were battling in front of the net, up the ice,” said Carter. “I think I took a swing at his glove there, he was trying to pick it up. I was in front of him. Next thing I knew, I was getting a stick to the face.”

“We [were] here, what, three weeks ago,” asked right wing Justin Williams, referring to his team coming back from a 2-0 series deficit in the first round of the playoffs against the St. Louis Blues. “Obviously, it’s four wins or go home, so it’s not do-or-die tomorrow, but it is.”

In LA Kings Dustin Brown Has New Perspective On Winning And Losing, he said:

“You always remember what it feels like to lose,” he said. “You almost have to lose before you learn how to win. It’s a motivating factor.”
