Stars coach happy to return the ‘spanking’ they received from Kings

Following the Stars 5-1 win over the visiting Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday, here’s what Dallas coach Glen Gulutzan had to share at his post-game presser…

– On the two penalty kills in the second period giving them a lift: “We talked about that between the second and third. We gotta get some juice out of those, because those are big penalty kills. Two high sticks that cut guys. So doubled up the minutes there. Those are big kills, and we needed to get some energy off it. We talked about the guys that didn’t…Weren’t involved with the kills, to get their energy up in the third, and they did.”

– On the performance of goalie Richard Bachman: “Solid, real solid. You could see his rebound control and his confidence. He’s out in his crease. He hasn’t played in a while, so it’s a good one for him.”

– On Kari Lehtonen’s injury: “He has a lower body injury. It’s mild. We’ll reassess him tomorrow.”

– On his evaluation of the Stars’ defensive play: “I think we limited the time in our zone by moving the puck north real quickly. We didn’t mess around with it, we just kept it going north. We had a purpose to our game, which we’ve talked about all year. I think the spanking we took from these guys a few weeks ago, or however long it was, was still lingering in our minds. So we wanted to come out here, be direct, put pucks towards their net, and get things away from our net as quickly as possible. I thought we did a good job of that.”

– On seeing the veterans getting goals: “Well they’re all working, and it’s nice when they’ve given us hard games. They’ve played hard. They’ve given us effort every game. It’s nice for them to get rewarded. Especially Fiddler and Whitney. When you’re spreading the scoring around; that gives everybody else a little more confidence. That’s what you need, and this is the right time of year to have it.”
