March 21 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On running into a hot goalie:
“Didn’t cash in. Got shut out, so you could say he’s hot, but we didn’t cash in. I mean, we had lots of opportunities that we didn’t quite complete. It’s too bad, because we worked hard. No score going into the third…Kopi’s line was on the ice for two goals. Caught two odd-man rushes against. Can’t happen.”

On Dallas:
“Veteran team. Two good teams. It’s like really a one-shot, one first goal deal, right?”

On Jaromir Jagr:
“He left as a superstar, and came back as a star. Just a little hiatus in there. I don’t think age is a factor for guys like that as long as you’re healthy and well-trained and still have a great desire to play.”

On the Brown-Kopitar-Williams line:
“They didn’t play very well. They got caught on two long shifts, caught on the wrong side of pucks, caught in different situations that we don’t want to be in. They’ve struggled for two or three games that line, probably three in a row now.”

On whether this was a better performance than the “ass-kicking” he mentioned two days ago:
“I said ‘they kicked our ass’, but to define it a little better the last game, they scored two power play goals and we gave up only three or four scoring opportunities. Tonight we were a lot better and just didn’t score the first goal.”

On Saturday’s opponent, Vancouver:
“Good team like us, fighting to be a playoff team.”
