May 21 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On whether there’s any solace taking from momentum gained in the third period:
“I think we battled back, but we made it close. You don’t get much for making it close.”

On any encouraging signs from the third period:
“No. You don’t You don’t win, then you’ve got to get ready for the next one.”

On remaining within a goal without playing the strongest 60 minutes of the series:
“I think our role players kept us in the game, and they have for the last three games.”

On Matt Greene’s performance:
“It’s good to see him play and not hobble off.”

On whether the first period was about “what San Jose was doing” or what the Kings “weren’t doing”:
“Probably both. I don’t think there was one without the other.”

On Dustin Penner’s waved off goal:
“Well, I’m sure it’s in the rule book. When the whistle goes, right? So what are they going to come and tell us? They’re going to come and say they lost sight of the puck and they blew the whistle.”
