What will Sutter say? Classic comments after 3-2 win in Dallas

Following the Kings 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars, here’s what coach Darryl Sutter had to share…

– On Brad Richardson: “Gave us some energy and some speed…He and I have a good relationship and I feel bad not playing him. He’s a guy who can play anywhere in your line-up and it’s been hard for him.”

– A local reporter said: “You also brought Penner back in and he had an assist on the first goal.” Sutter responded with: “He did, you’re right. You said we brought him back in and he had an assist on the first goal. You’re right. So, was that a question?” After the reporter replied that he wanted his opinion on Penner, Sutter said: “He was good in the six-furlong stuff, but as soon as it started to get into that seven-furlong stuff, it was a little tougher.”

– On the importance of having a good start after Saturday’s loss in Minnesota: “Had no bearing, we played well enough to win last night too. Had no bearing on nothing. We were in a good frame of mind by the time we were five minutes after the game yesterday.”

– On Dallas not having a shot on goal in the second period until Jamie Benn scored: “We try not ton concentrate on what the other team does. Most teams try to out-shoot their opponent. Some nights you do, some night you don’t. But, we’re a team that tries to get lots of pucks at the net. We were good at it again tonight.”

– On Jonathan Bernier: “He’s solid. That’s what we want, right? We want our goalies to give us a chance to win, right? I look at it like last night we lost 6-4. That’s how I look at it. Tonight we won 3-2.”

– On it being a 3-2 league: “That’s right. Well, we were hanging on. You could see we were tired and we were getting by on it.”

– Sutter ended the presser with: “OK. Happy Easter you guys.”

  1. I love that. He’s going, “So what’s your question?”

    OK, I don’t speak Sutterisms or horse racing, so what did mean when he said that it was a little tougher for Penner when things got in the seven furlongs?

    • I think it’s a horse racing analogy… standard track is 1 mile, which is 8 furlongs. I guess Sutter meant Penner got tired in the final stretch?

  2. Richardson and Clifford had a great game. They played well 2 years ago in the playoffs on the same line (when it was Clifford-Richardson-Simmer).

    I would like to see Richie stay in and have the Kings ice a 4th line of Clifford-Richardson-Nolan
