BLOG: LA Kings Toffoli on keeping momentum

by Meg Tilley / Edmonton Oilers

He’s scored five goals in four wins with the Los Angeles Kings, but Tyler Toffoli says the team is still looking to find their groove.

“We’re finding our game slowly. It’s early in the season so we know what we have to do, we have to keep working hard, dig it in here and find some more wins,” said the Kings centre.

Keeping a level head, the Kings, who are 4-3-0, are gearing up to play the Oilers tonight.

“I’m just trying to do my best, help the team win games and whatever that means. Just trying to do the best on the ice and go from there,” said Toffoli.

“I think the same time last year I did the same thing, had a good start and kind of, my game trailed off, so I’ve got to find a way to keep it going and find ways to win games here.”

It’s a long season ahead, and Toffoli says the team has kept their cool by not overreacting when rebounding from their three losses to gain four wins.

They’re taking one game at a time and are analyzing what they have to do to come out with a win over the Oilers.

“They’re really skilled, they’ve got a good team. We’ve got to be ready to go right from the drop of the puck. Take away their speed and their skill and play our game,” said Toffoli.
