November 27 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On a “tense, dramatic” game:
Not really. I thought we had a good first period, did what we wanted. I thought we deserved to win the second period and they scored the two goals. We were down, and did a good job in the third to tie it up.

On not falling behind by two goals since the Islanders game:
It doesn’t matter what we’re down. I think we’re always in the mindset that we have a chance to win.

On finding some success limiting Joe Thornton and Brent Burns:
Not easy. Big guys that hang on to the puck. That’s pretty much a Mike-Joe match-up tonight. We’re used to that. Mike-Joe.

On Ben Scrivens taking responsibility for the shootout loss:
Goaltender loses, then they take responsibility.

On whether there is pride in the team recording points in 11 consecutive game, keeping in mind that the team wants to look ahead, not behind:
We don’t get ahead of courselves and we don’t look back. Same question, same answer, right? [Reporter: Well, you keep getting points, that’s the same question. The streak keeps going.] I’d be concerned that we haven’t gained any ground on it. It tells you how good everybody is. Same answer, right. It tells you how good everybody is. Look at everybody that’s in that position.
