Sutter postgame quotes (Feb. 22)

Darryl Sutter’s postgame thoughts…

(on the start of the game…)
SUTTER: “Not much energy from our team. I think (Colorado) came out and we knew they were going to be fresh. They’ve been home a couple days. They get an energy kid like (Steve) Downie in their lineup, and you know they’re going to come out (strong) in the first period. I don’t know if it’s because…I don’t know why. Obviously I’ve got to do a better job of getting them ready, when we come in late like that (the night before).’’

(on Quick facing early pressure…)
SUTTER: “Really, they didn’t have a lot of chances. I didn’t think about it like that. They’ve got a great set of forwards. You’ve got to try to saw that off, and I don’ think we were on that early.’’

(on starting Quick again…)

SUTTER: “Well, there’s two ways of looking at it. You don’t say anything (to Quick) and you tell the other guy (he’s playing). or you talk to him and find out. That’s what I did, and he wanted it.’’

(on whether he was worried about a hangover from the Phoenix loss…)
SUTTER: “Yeah. We talked about it this morning and made the decision not to come over here (for a morning skate). You know what time we got in. Quite honestly, I thought we’d get through the first period and we would be all right, and we weren’t able to.’’
