GM6 Preds at Kings: Quotes from Sutter’s post-game presser

Following the Kings 2-1 shootout loss to the visiting Nashville Predators on Thursday night, here’s what coach Darryl Sutter had to say at his post-game presser…

– On the overall game: “It’d like to score more than one goal.”

– On what it will take: “Score two.”

– On using Mike Richards in the shootout: “He’s capable of big plays and he’s a good shootout guy. Have seen it before.”

[NOTE: For the record, Richards was 3-for-9 last year in shootouts, converting at 33%. That was second best on the team, only trailing Justin Williams’ 3-for-6 or 50%.]

– On what the team did to limit Nashville to only 11 shots on goal during regulation: “They’re strong up the middle. They’ve got their veterans on the back and they have a good goalie. They don’t give you much and you have to try and counter that. You have to try and bare down on your opportunities; the ones you get. You don’t get too many against them.”

– More on shutting down the opponent: “It just comes down to details, right? They scored a faceoff goal. Other than that they probably only had three or four opportunities to score, and we probably had ten. We’re still not getting that goal out of players that we count on though.”

– On Jeff Carter’s involvement and all around play: “Jeff? He’s been pretty good.”

– On the upcoming road games in February: “I really don’t look at it as a month thing – because really we only played eleven days in January. So, I don’t look at it as a month thing or break it into a home/road, three and four, back-to-backs and all those sort of things. I really don’t look too far ahead of me. I deal with Saturday and then we have to go East, go though three time zones. That’s my first thought after we play Anaheim.”
