Alec Martinez gives the Kings a bump with overtime goal in 3-2 win over Blue Jackets

latimes.com - Dec 9, 2015

There can only be one thing — well, two — when defenseman Alec Martinez and left wing Milan Lucic are in close proximity after a Kings victory. Two experienced professional hockey players morph into giddy kids. "Two chest bumps for two points," Martinez said. The Kings pulled off a come-from-behind...

Jeff Carter "It's been long enough, I'm past all that. Big goal and a big character win. It's a long trip and we went into the game as a mind-set of a one-game road trip."
Jeff Carter "He [Martinez] got blocked a couple of times and he was just trying to get it through, I just slid into some open space and Looch [Lucic] made a great play of getting the rebound and sliding it right over to me. I didn't get a lot on it because it was kind of in a weird place."

philly.com - Dec 5, 2015

Steve Mason turned to his left and then to his right as the goal lamp flashed behind him. It was as if the Flyers goalie could not believe Nick Foligno's second-period shot had zipped past him and into the net during Saturday night's 4-1 loss to Columbus.

Steve Mason "It was one of those nights, We didn't have the overall game that we need to win a hockey game. That's why we're coming out on the losing end."
Luke Schenn "Not enough fight, We weren't winning the battles. We weren't winning the races to the puck. Therefore, we spent a ton of time in our end and hung Mason out to dry a little bit. We didn't play well enough in front of him."
