EL SEGUNDO, CA — After getting their rear ends handed to them in two embarrassing losses to the San Jose Sharks in Games 1 and 2 of their 2014 Western Conference Quarterfinal series in San Jose, one might expect a somber mood in the Los Angeles Kings’ dressing room at their practice facility on April 21.
But even though you couldn’t call the mood of the team, “jovial,” they remain upbeat and confident, yet serious and focused on climbing a mountain that is now much taller than expected in order to advance to the second round of the playoffs.
On this day, the best way to capture that mood, along with what they had to say, is simply to let you listen to the media scrum interviews with Anze Kopitar, Jarret Stoll, Jonathan Quick and head coach Darryl Sutter.
