Darryl Sutter comments Post-Game 6 in San Jose

On the penalties in the first period:

“Yep. Richards’ (Mike Richards) was a penalty. Kopi’s (Anze Kopitar) was a penalty. It’s not very good when your first two centermen are sitting in those good seats over there looking at you.”

On the Kings franchise not playing a Game 7 since 2002:

“Who cares. Who cares. Should we have a major announcement tomorrow that we haven’t played a game 7?” (Reporter: “Is there anything you wanted to say?”)…”No. Not really, no.”

On what’s making the Sharks so effective:

“Well, I’m not sure the last series, but against us we’ve only scored one goal in the three games.”

On Trevor Lewis’ play:

“I thought his line was really good. I thought Trevor, Kinger (Dwight King) and Brownie (Dustin Brown) were our best line.”

On the Sharks’ game plan of playing faster and more allusive:

“Well it was pretty even both ways, both teams were going to play the same way. I think the big forwards have played that way and we had some guys that played that way too.”

On the key to winning Game 7:

“I think probably for us, would be to stay away from those penalties early. Other than that I thought we played pretty well tonight.”

On the series being so close:

“It’s a fine line, you know. They scored a 5-on-3 goal tonight. Mike’s (Mike Richards) is a fraction, I think, on Thornton (Joe Thornton) and Kopi (Anze Kopitar) shoots it into to the stands. There’s a good chance with their power play, they’re going to score. and quote honest, their power play was really good. So, fine line.”

On if he has any complaints about the game tonight:

“No, it was great. Crowd was great. Heck, we were ready to go. It was 5 o’clock. We can get out of town, and our plane leaves in 15 minutes. Just think, we’re going to get to go home and play Game 7.”

On the Kings stepping it up the last few games:

“Game 5 we didn’t allow a goal, and tonight we allowed two. It’s a low scoring series so it’s 11-12. No, 12-9, that’s the score now after six games.”
