LA 4, Phx 3: Quotes from coach Sutter’s postgame presser

Here are the first batch of quotes from coach Darryl Sutter’s postgame presser, following the Kings 4-3 win over the Coyotes…

On the overall game – “It’s nice to see a ‘W’ up there…I want to over-emphasize the importance of producing more offense to win hockey games…We had a good first period. We’ve been trying to talk about that, good first periods. Then I think they [Phoenix] made the push in the second, and we didn’t match it, and then we got it back in the third.”

On the Kings defense providing much of the offense – “[They were] holding their line. [They had] patience at the blue line instead of being over aggressive and forcing offense. Good play down low. I thought the first period we did a really good job of that down low and going low to high.”

Defenseman Rob Scuderi, who scored the team’s first goal of the night, added the following comments…

On the overall game – “You always want to come out and play your best hockey in the first [period], by the time that you get to that first TV timeout and really just establish an attitude and a tone to the game. I thought we had a very good first period. Second period wasn’t very good—we picked up towards the end, but at that point we gave a lot of momentum back to Phoenix. But, we finished up well.”

We’ll have more from coach Sutter posted early tomorrow morning.

Up next, Kings captain Dustin Brown and quotes from the Coyotes locker room.
