What will Sutter say? Comments after Kings 2-0 loss to Stars

Following the Kings 2-0 loss to the Dallas Stars, here’s what coach Darryl Sutter had to share…

- On if the Kings ran into a hot goaltender: “No, we didn’t cash in. We got shut out so you can say he was hot, but we didn’t cash in. We had lots of opportunities and didn’t quite complete them, which is too bad because we worked hard and no score going into the third, and Kopi’s line was on the ice for two goals, caught two odd man rushes against them, can’t help it.”

- On how much of it was the Stars as opposed to the Kings: “Not anything. When you get taught 3-on-2; that’s the three guys on the ice. It’s that simple. (No I was talking about not being able to score.) Veteran team, right? Two good teams, right? It’s like really a one shot, one first goal deal, right?”

- On Jaromir Jagr: “He left as a superstar, and came back as a star. Just a little hiatus in there. I don’t think age is a factor for guys like that as long as you’re healthy and well-trained and still have a desire to play.”

- On Anze Kopitar’s line: “They didn’t play very well. They got caught on two line shifts, caught on the wrong side of pucks, caught in different situations that we don’t want to be in. They have struggled for two or three games that line, probably three in a row now.”

- On if he believes they played better despite the loss given he said Dallas kicked their ass last time: “Well I said they kicked our ass, but to define it a little better, the last game they scored two power play goals, and we gave up only three or four scoring opportunities, right? So tonight we were a lot better and just didn’t score the first goal.”

- On looking ahead to Vancouver: “Good team like us, fighting to be a playoff team.”
