Video- You Make The Call, Kings/Coyotes

John Stevens on the call.

Obviously the puck was deemed that it went in the net, which obviously is the right call, and then they go back and look at the goalie interference. If there was contact, I thought it was induced from their player riding Drew into the goalie, that was my take on it, but I don’t know what I’m talking about, because I’m still confused on the whole issue. It’s a guessing game for me, but that’s the call they made. We still had an opportunity in overtime and we didn’t take advantage of it.

Afternoon Line- Jack Campbell

"I wanted to be here [in the NHL] so bad and I worked so hard to try to put myself in position to be here back when I was younger and it just kind of like, you just have to learn. Like anybody in this room, you can just sense how much they care and how hard they work, but they have that demeanor where it's not life or death. It's like they take it so serious, but at the end of the day you have to be able to look at life for what it is and, for me, it took me a long time to learn how to do that and that's kind of where I was at back then." 

-Jack Campbell, goaltender for the Los Angeles Kings.  Josh Cooper of LAKings.com has more on Campbell.

All Bob Nicholson

from Tim Campbell of NHL.com,

It's been a tough season in Edmonton, going from 103 points and two rounds in the playoffs last season to having little chance to qualify this season. You said recently that expectations for the Oilers ran really high after last season and that you had a difficult time getting that under control. How did that affect the organization and the team?

"Expectations certainly were extremely high and rightly so. This organization hadn't been in the playoffs for many, many years and we got into the playoffs and played very well, one goal, one game away from going to the conference final. So that expectation came and it came not just from within the city of Edmonton, it came worldwide about where the Edmonton Oilers were. We talked a lot about it but it's very difficult to get your hands around that and maneuver that expectation when it's coming at you in so many ways. We absorbed that and you've got to talk to the players about how it really affected them. Here, we're worried about it and there wasn't any way to get right in front of that and control all of that. It (began) in Vegas (at the NHL Awards and NHL Expansion Draft last June) about where this team was supposed to be."
