What Will Sutter Say? Post-game comments from Anaheim

Following the Kings 7-4 loss to the Ducks in Anaheim on Saturday night, here’s what LA coach Darryl Sutter had to say…

- On how difficult it can be to come back on teams in the NHL these days: “Well we did. We did comeback from being down by two goals. It was a momentum thing. It’s not the situation you want to be in, obviously. But, we came back two or three times. We needed not to turn the puck over, and we did that.”

- On taking away positives from a 7-4 loss: “You know what, everybody has to play on the right side of the puck in this league. Playing the wrong side of the puck, there’s a good chance that you’re going to lose. When you give up four goals you’re not going to win.”

- On the impact of changing goalies in a game: “I’m not a guy who changes the goalies. In 20 some years, I’ve probably done it five times. So, I don’t enjoy doing that.”

- On why he pulled Jonathan Quick and put Bernier in the game: “Because it was two-nothing five minutes into the game or whatever it was. Based on that…we don’t fault our goaltenders, everybody has to play better.”

- On if tonight was the first game the Kings really missed Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene on the penalty kill: “I haven’t seen Willie Mitchell for seven months and we miss Greener’s leadership out there and in the locker room for sure.”

- On the overall game: “We’ve played really well until tonight, but we let their top players pretty much dominate the game early and they were able to sustain that.”
