What will Sutter say? Comments after Kings 1-0 loss to Canucks

Following the Kings 1-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks, here’s what coach Darryl Sutter had to share…

– On the shutout and if the team needs to be around the net more: “I think it’s normal when you don’t score to try and produce more shots, but we have outshot our opponents 2-to-1 the last two games. You need the odd one to go in.”

– On whether the team needs more quality shots: “No. More is better right? You just can’t say quality. That quality comes from your top guys right? Sometimes they pass up maybe the odd one that they’d normally take, but trust them that they will.”

– On Keaton Ellerby: “He’s played well this homestand for us. You try and put him in situations that he can succeed in and he’s done a good job killing penalties, trying to play a little more abrasive and trying to move pucks and that’s what we want him to do.”

– On if the team needs another scorer from the outside: “From? (Another team, a trade?) Well you don’t talk…You’re way out of line asking coaches questions like that.”

– On needing to maybe shake the current lines up: “Right now, Kopi, Brownie, Willy, Jeff, Mike, Lewey, and Jarret, they’re on a good third line pace for goals, all are having trouble scoring right now. So, I’m more inclined to listen to what they tell me, more than I’m inclined to tell them, right? It’s difficult when you’re just playing to say that you’re going to switch lines up and it’s gonna work. That’s like giving me a map to go to a place that I’m not sure of…Not sure where I’m going.”

– On if Tyler Toffoli will play on the road: “It’s the same thing when we called him up. You know what? We’re playing a lot of games. We have three back-to-backs in a short period of time. Just trying to have guys that can play on certain teams based on what they have. And that was the advantage of being at home. So, it’s not based on winning and losing. It’s more…We were allowed (to call him up) because we had one more roster spot. So, we did it with a forward.”

– On Jonathan Quick’s play: “It’s been solid but hit the button that’s what you guys asked a couple days ago right? We want the goaltending to be consistent. That’s what you want, your goaltender to keep you in it and give you a chance and that’s what we’re getting.”
