Dallas Stars coach melts down after loss to LA Kings with incredible quotes

Doughty Kings at Stars Mar31 2013 MayorsManor
Following a 3-2 loss to the visiting LA Kings on Sunday night, here’s what Dallas Stars coach Glen Gulutzan had to share (audio here)…

– On what the Kings did differently to beat them this time: “You know, they didn’t do much different. They just amped up their work load, and we didn’t respond at all. Like I said, two teams from two different leagues tonight, and they’re back-to-back. So, thank the Lord that they weren’t fresh.”

– On Kari Lehtonen seeing a lot of shots: “Well lately he saw them against LA. I don’t know how many shots that is in three games against LA, but we’re fighting for our lives here. As far as goaltenders go, we’ll decide that in the morning.”

– On how he feels about the game: ” Well, more like embarrassed. I mean, at times, who were we supposed to put out? Bring a stick out to you? So, we need to amp up a level. We’re fighting for our lives here. If we think with performances like that, we’re going to stroll in here, we’re mistaken. We got a three game series against Anaheim after an embarrassing outing in front of our fans like that. We better come out hard tomorrow. We will come out hard tomorrow, if we got any balls.”

– On if there will be line-up changes tomorrow: “No. We are what we are.”

– On mistakes: “Yup, those blind passes. Backhands to the slot kind of hurt you. I don’t know. We practice them every day. So, who the hell knows where that came from.”

– On if the power play was a positive: “Yeah, that was a positive.  I thought they – against a good penalty kill, they got one. And Ray Whitney is just a lethal guy there. That’s about the only (positive). Kari and the power play.”

  1. Well, they stole one from the Kings at Staples Center and probably thought they could do it again. If not for their goalie, this game would’ve been 6, 7-2 Kings.

    Okay, gotta admit i’m no expert on Glen Gulutzan, but after hearing the audio, Who would want to play well for this guy. Are THEY fighting for their lives or is HE fighting for his ? Sounds too scared and desperate. How does that motivate??? GG- “…they’re back-to-back. So, thank the Lord that they weren’t fresh.” -that felt good. 🙂
