January 20 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter
On a “tough night for special teams”:
Actually, our power play scored a goal to make it a good game in the third. [Reporter: The power play’s not just scoring goals, but it’s scoring big goals in key situations as well.] Yeah, that’s what you’ve got to do. I’ve said that a hundred times about your power play. It’s got to score big goals.
On Boston’s game-winning goal:
Our defensemen had a tough night.
On whether it was surprising to see Jonathan Quick allow two first period goals:
It’s going to happen. The other team’s going to score two goals.
On the 200-foot game that Linden Vey, Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli are looking to put together:
I think there’s lots of guys down there – what did you say, Vey, Pearson, Toffoli? I think there’s a couple other kids there that have had pretty good years, too.
On whether Quick is back at 100%:
He wouldn’t be playing if he wasn’t.
On whether he was aware of the cut Drew Doughty sustained before the game:
Yeah. [Reporter: Just a fluke thing?] Yeah, he just got cut on his toe.
On Willie Mitchell scoring and nearly getting a second goal:
If he’d have been sharper, he would’ve had a second one. Our defense was not very good tonight. They had trouble handling the puck the whole night.
