February 1 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter
On the loss:
Score. Score to win. Can’t win nothing-nothing.
Whether the Kings generated the chances they needed to.
Yep. It was tough. Yep.
On consistently generating shots without scoring:
I’m not getting into philosophy.
Whether the lack of scoring puts pressure on Jonathan Quick:
I don’t think it puts pressure on Quick. He’s going to play the same way every night. It’s not about one guy.
On what the team needs to do differently:
Well, you can’t get frustrated. You can’t allow guys that are playing really well to get frustrated, and guys that aren’t, you’ve got to see if they can work their way out of it. Obviously we’ve got a handful of guys that are really struggling with their games.
On whether he can see which players are frustrated:
Yep. [Reporter: How can you, besides giving them a backrub or something, tell them they’ve got to relax?] You’ve got to stick with ‘em. You’ve been down it enough to know that.
On Robyn Regehr playing his 1,000th NHL game:
It’s good. You know what? Robyn is probably ahead of that, actually. If you asked him, he’s probably missed a couple hundred games with injuries, and with the injury that he had prior to his career, you’ve got to give him a lot of credit for him to continue to play that same way and be a really good role model for young players – the way he trains. It’s not just the game. Obviously he’s not the player that he was. That’s what happens as you get older. But the role model part of it is really important. It’s good for other players, especially young players, to see that.
On facing the Blackhawks, and whether it’s good for the team to play a rivalry game:
Yep. We’ll think about Chicago tomorrow.
