January 21 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter
On where adjustments need to take place in advance of the Anaheim games:
I haven’t really thought about Anaheim, but we’re clearly giving up too many goals against. [Reporter: The scoring chances against – have they been up the last couple of games?] No.
On odd-man rushes against:
Well, we gave up a breakaway goal, which is a play that starts behind their goalie. Jordie’s got to have that. That’s a set play for us. Jordan’s got to have that. Two-on-one goal. Slava has been on the ice for way too many goals against. Two tonight. The kids are kind of hitting the wall a little bit, some young guys. Go through it.
On whether the team was affected by the end of the Detroit game:
No…That’s a bad goal we gave up. That’s a bad goal. I said what happened on that goal, and everybody knows it’s not a disputed goal. It wasn’t a goal. It didn’t affect us at all. Do you think tonight had anything to do with something that happened [Saturday]?
On Columbus’ third goal:
That’s a bad goal. It doesn’t matter. You can’t shoot from the wall. We had one in Boston, one tonight. Those are goalie saves.
On whether the upcoming outdoor game could provide a lift:
No, I don’t think that has anything to do with it. I mean, I haven’t got a problem with how we played. I mean, hell – we deserved better in Detroit. We know that. We came back yesterday in a tough building, gave up a bad goal right after. Came back tonight, did the same thing again. You know what? You don’t just win by scoring. You win by doing lots of things.
