October 11 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On watching his son on the other team, possible to watch as head coach
I never looked at him at all, except on faceoffs.

On whether there was pride in watching his son on the other team:
He’s a solid player. He’s made his own way, and he’s a solid player.

On how he evaluates his son’s game:
It’s what he is. He just goes about his business. He’s honest and plays hard. That’s what you want.

On the pride of watching his son:
I kind of get past all that nostalgia stuff. You know what? Everybody said that about my brothers, too, and then my brothers’ kids, and now about Brett. You know what? That’s what we do.

On what he liked about the win:
Everything. Nothing wrong with it at all.

On Dwight King’s performance:
Good to get him going killing penalties. Faulk turned the puck over, and he made a good play.

On Jonathan Quick looking “sharp”:
He got sharper as he went along. He told me coming off theice that he felt good, so that’s important, because that’s something that we’re trying to learn as a team – that it’s hard to travel like that and not skate, and you can see that we kind of had to build it as we went. Just didn’t quite have the legs that we use.

On whether there was strong systems play between the two teams:
Both teams are structured very similar. Both teams are trying to play well in their own zone. Both teams have good goalies.

On the offensive zone time and effective forechecking:
We’re a good forechecking team as long as we’re healthy and everybody’s going.
