The Kings face St. Louis at Staples Center on Thursday, two nights after suffering a third-period collapse in which they gave up four goals in a 5-2 loss to the Blues.
"I think if you're not excited about playing tomorrow, after what happened in St. Louis, then we have bigger issues," Brown said after practice Wednesday.
"For me, I'm excited that we get to play them again. Especially the way they beat us and how the third period transpired last game. Like I said, if you're not excited to play them again, there's bigger issues."
"The good thing is that we get to play them again," he said. "A chance for redemption."
The Kings gave up five consecutive goals after taking a 2-0 lead. Blues Coach Ken Hitchcock noticed the change in his team in the third period.
"When we play reckless, we're a better team," he said Wednesday. "We don't play well when we play conservative or careful. We need to play reckless to be effective."
The Kings finished the five-game trip 1-3-1. Their victory came against Ottawa. They were outscored, 18-12, on the trip, which does not include Toronto's shootout goal.
"Going into last night, we wanted to come back with being .500, so that was disappointing last night," Coach
The Kings have struggled away from Staples Center. They are 4-7-5 on the road, beating Dallas, Minnesota, Arizona and Ottawa.
"Two years ago, this team couldn't play on the road, either, if you look at it," Sutter said. "Everybody says, 'Oh this team's historically been so good on the road.' Well that's not really true when you look at it.
"Home and road last year were the same and the year before, the lockout year, was a tough road thing for us."
"He hasn't scored a goal for a month tomorrow," Sutter said of Carter.
That settled in during a lengthy pause.
"November 18th. I have it all marked down."
