Kings’ Dustin Brown: ‘We got our [expletives] kicked’

Dustin Brown didn’t hold back with his assessment of his team’s performance Sunday.

The L.A. Kings fell behind the San Jose Sharks 2-0 in this best-of-seven Western Conference quarter-final series, after getting embarrassed by a final score of 7-2 in Game 2. The Kings had a 2-0 lead after the first period but gave up seven unanswered goals – all with Jonathan Quick in the net – in the loss.

It was also San Jose’s fourth line, including Mike Brown and Raffi Torres initiating the scoring attack in the second period.

“We got our asses kicked pretty much and now we go home and we have to take care of our home ice,” Brown said afterward, as per LA Kings Insider.

“It starts with the game on Tuesday. In a series like this, you remember the score but you move on from the game and get focused on Game 3, because that’s all you can do.”

The series now shifts back to L.A. for the next two games, beginning with Game 3 on Tuesday. The Kings found themselves down two-games-to-none in the first round of last year’s playoffs, and were already looking to the future during their post-game remarks after Game 2 against San Jose.

“It obviously stinks sitting here, talking after another lopsided loss, but they did what they set out to do and now it’s response time,” Kings’ forward Justin Williams said.

“We’re going back to our arena. We won the first two in our arena last year and they came back and won the next two in theirs. So we’re looking to repeat that, but we need to start with one.”

    Why is there an [expletive] in the title and yet the full quote is in the story?

    Kids read the headlines but not the story. Everyone knows this.

      The word “ass” is ubiquitous on television to the point where I think most would not find it pejorative:

    I’m confused, why doesn’t LA have home ice advantage? They won the presidents trophy and came in first so why did the series start in San Jose?

      Giving the benefit of some serious doubt and saying that this is just a sarcastic shot at blomfeld.

    This is going 7. And both teams will be too roughed up to go all the way. This is good for Chicago IMO

      You do realise that the Blackhawks are down 0-2!?

    In what world did la win the presidents trophy?

  11. aldog83 - Apr 21, 2014 at 2:35 PM

    Broken record!!!

    Brown and Richards need to score NOW!

    San Jose has too much scoring depth to try to squek by 2-1 every game.

    • viking2228 - Apr 21, 2014 at 3:18 PM

      duhh! What, does Brown have 6 goals this season, yeah, he is the guy who will change the series. I have to give it to him though, he was honest after the game, going on to say we got our asses kicked. He was my favorite King to watch cus he was a dirty, gritty player, but after he put a real hockey player out for the season I was pissed! Ha Ha…….Beat LA!
