Sutter postgame quotes (May 6)

Darryl Sutter’s postgame thoughts…

(on his message to the team after the second period…)
SUTTER: “There were two or three things that we wanted to do better, in terms of… Really, each period is a game unto itself, right? So, if you can try and do some of the things you were doing at the start of each period, that’s what you try to do at the start of the third period.’’

(on whether he told the team to give its best 20 minutes…)
SUTTER: “They don’t each play 20 minutes. They each play a minute and a half to seven or eight minutes. It’s more of a shift-to-shift thing.’’

(on Jonathan Quick’s play…)

SUTTER: “I think you need great goaltending to win every game that you play in the playoffs.’’

(on how long the Kings should be satisfied…)
SUTTER: “Until we see what the schedule is and who we play. They should be satisfied, shouldn’t they?’’

(on Dustin Brown’s play in the playoffs thus far…)

SUTTER: “I think it was fitting that he scored the winner. I think we saw some pretty tough guys score goals tonight. I mean, Jordy [Jordan Nolan] didn’t play much. He scored a big goal and had a big fight. He was just as important in that win tonight as Dustin Brown was, that’s for sure.’’

(on the growth of the team…)
SUTTER: “It’s like I tell them, `Meet the challenge but enjoy the experience.’ Experience the experience. It’s the only way to do it. It’s a big part of getting better, or learning. It’s the best way.’’
