What will Sutter say? Comments after rare day win

After a rare daytime win by the LA Kings over the Edmonton Oilers, here’s what coach Darryl Sutter had to share…

– On the team upping the intensity lately: “Our records pretty much held its’ own for a long time now. You don’t be right at the top of the league for regulation wins if you don’t do it for a long time. So I don’t think lately has been much different.”

– On if he’s happy with Quick today: “We won. Give us a chance, right? Same thing every night. Goalies give you a chance to win, you have a chance to win.”

– On what he thought when Kopitar went down: “I seen what it was. I knew he got a stick in the yap.”

– On if Doughty and Regehr will be paired from now on: “It’s easier at home. Face-offs, thing like that, right? You got six seconds til the referee puts his arm up. Sure we’ll have a little different challenge tomorrow.”

– On the biggest challenge going into Anaheim: “I don’t know, I can’t remember that one. (You pulled Quick in that one.) I said the biggest challenge…What’s that got to do with tomorrow? (What is the biggest challenge with tomorrow’s game?) Playing a team that’s what? 10—12 points ahead of us? So we’re playing a better team.”

– On if he follows Anaheim on TV: “Yup, I do. They’re a good team. Big team, strong team, veteran team, kids they brought up are playing well. Using two goalies. We know that. We know they’re the division winner. I’m not saying that because we play them tomorrow, but when you get off to that type of lead; it’s impossible to make it up. So you know what? We just want to concentrate on us, and try and play well.”

– On if the Kings’ M.O. has been to not look around and concentrate on themselves: “The question was asked last week about home and road. Well they’ve been awesome at home. Right? Team’s struggled on the road. So going into a tough building. Doesn’t matter if we’re going into Catalina Island, if they had a team.”

– On when he’ll decide on who starts in net: “4:30 tomorrow. Doesn’t matter. Keep them fresh, always saying. It’s not…There’s no issues, right? Our schedule says that you need two goalies that are fresh. You can take that from teams that are ahead of us in the league to be quite honest. Quite honestly even in our conference, Chicago and Anaheim. So why not do what they do? Or try to.”

– On staying in Anaheim being like a real road trip: “Well it’s just…You know one o’clock game today, six o’clock tomorrow. It’s sorta…That is a quicker turnaround. That’s a quick turnaround for us. So we might as well go and have dinner and everything today, go on the bus, get some down time tonight, and skate tomorrow. I know there are several different ways over the years, right? We’ve done it different ways…Three different ways. This will be the third different way. Whatever works. It’s more about keeping guys…Keeping their energy level up. It’s more important than anything else. It’s easy to get there. So…Good enough?”
