Los Angeles Kings 6:0 Pittsburgh Penguins: Reactions

Adrian Kempe scored 4 goals in a row for the Los Angeles Kings in a 6-0 win vs Pittsburgh Penguins. Kempe thinks this is 'one of those nights' "One of those nights when the puck keeps coming to you, and I think I had chances for five, six too, so yeah, just one of those nights," Kempe said for nhl.com Los Angeles coach Todd McLellan had reason to be satisfied with his team's performance, which showed maturity and quality.

"I think that after watching the Dustin Brown ceremony and having the Stanley Cup come out, if you didn't have a spark to play already, it put a little more into the game,"- Todd McLellan said. "The guys played well. They were rested, they were fresh, executed well and did some of the things we didn't do in Pittsburgh (a 6-1 loss on Oct.

20)." Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan, on the other hand, has every right to be disappointed. "Although we made good decisions for the most part, we come out on the wrong side of the score," -Mike Sullivan said. "They got that third goal early in the second, and it was tough to overcome that."

Brown record

Since Brown scored three goals in a period, Kempe is the first Kings player to accomplish this feat.

"It was a special night for [Brown] and for us as well, so we're happy that we got the win for him," Kempe said. "Obviously, expectations go up after last year (scored NHL career-high 35 goals), not only for myself but as a team, and I think we've been getting better and better throughout the year," Kempe said.

"We got to keep this going for the last 28 games, and then the fun things start after that, and that's where you got to be good. It's important to keep my scoring up as much as I can."
