Coach Speak: Patrick Roy vs Darryl Sutter after Avs 1-0 OT win


Following the Kings 1-0 overtime loss to the Avalanche on Saturday night, here’s what both coaches had to share…

– Darryl Sutter on the overall game: “We played a good game, but we have a lot of guys out of the lineup, knocked two guys out again last game. The goalie has to make big saves, which he did. He has to do that when we’re not scoring. Those kids are growing into their team, they’re good players. They have excellent goaltending, both of those guys.”

– Sutter on Dustin Brown being moved back to right wing: “It’s because of the injuries clearly, we knocked two right wingers out in the last game so we moved Brown over. It didn’t affect how he played, it didn’t affect anything to be quite honest.”

– Sutter on Ben Scrivens: “Game to game, he gave us a chance to win tonight. We need that every night from your goaltender, I don’t care who it is, he’s doing a good job.”

– Sutter on Matt Frattin: “He was sore so we’ll leave him home and go from there. He hasn’t skated for three days, we travel tomorrow, we play, then we travel and play so it doesn’t make sense so we’ll leave him here.”

– Avalanche coach Patrick Roy on his team’s play in the second and third periods: “It was a 60-minute effort, I thought it was one of the best game of the year. It was the best game of the year for us.”

– Roy on Scrivens: “He made some great saves for them. I thought we had a lot of good chances,”

– Roy on the play of his team: “I thought we played a good game offensively, I mean we had traffic in front the net, we did everything we asked and our players played offensively a really good game. I like the pressure we put on their defensemen, I like the way we got the puck out of the zone…It was a great team effort tonight, everyone was really sharp, Varlamov made a couple big saves at the right moments.”

BONUS QUOTE…

– Anze Kopitar on the Kings’ play: “We had a pretty good first period. In the second period we got outplayed. The third period was back and forth. We were good on the penalty kill, and have to create a bit more on the power play. In overtime, it was just a tough bounce.”
