Following the Kings 2-1 OT loss in St. Louis on Tuesday night, here’s what coach Darryl Sutter had to share…
– On what he can take away from the game: “You know what? They came out exactly how you expected them too. They play a work speed game. That’s what they did, and we had a handful of guys that weren’t ready for that part of it. Made some tough times. We were able to…Actually I thought we played really well from about five minutes left in the first and most of the second. Then we were able to tie it up, and they score on a bad break; lose it.”
– On the message to the team after this loss: “There really is no bearing on anything. We’re down one-nothing in the series. We’re on the road, and we try and get a win on the road.”
– On Jonathan Quick’s performance: “It was outstanding…I thought he played a great game. Kind of ironic that the two best players on the ice were in on the goal. And even there, he tries to make a play, and I think Steen’s stick tapped it, you know? It was hard to tell from the bench, but he made the good play. That’s the play that we try to make on the power play, right? Go to the defenseman. Tough play.”
– On what winning this game would have meant: “Probably stole one. Even though we had the better opportunities by quite a bit in overtime to get to that point. You know, really our goalie got us there, and probably Mike’s line.”

Can someone please ask him why he is separating Kopitar/Brown and Carter/Richards? Those 2 pairings have such great chemistry and it so obvious there was no chemistry on the top 2 lines tonight but no journalist asks Sutter.
What does he mean by “Mike’s lying”?
