December 18 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter - LA Kings Insider

On the 6-4 win:
Well, I thought it was pretty good. Usually a couple of you guys are burying us when we get down one goal, so just for us to come back’s a mild miracle.

On whether this was an example of the Kings’ best players being their best players:

On being down by only two goals after one period:
I told the players after the first period we did a lot of good things in the first period. They scored a couple deflection goals that our goaltender didn’t see on not a lot of opportunities.

On whether the bounce that eluded Martin Brodeur represented things “starting to turn” the Kings’ way:
They got some bounces in the first period and we got one in the third. That was the sixth goal, not the goal that made the difference.

On averaging over three goals a game over the last 20 games:
I thought we were having trouble scoring. [Reporter: Is there anything that separates this team from last year’s team in terms of just the offense and the way that you are being able to create?] Actually last year’s team I think led the playoffs – if you can get there – led the playoffs in scoring.

On whether Toffoli “scrapping” helped his case to further his ice time:
We need them to be better competitors.

On Robyn Regehr’s injury:
He blocked a shot and played six minutes and did not return. Tried it and did not return after that.

On Martin Brodeur:
It’s good to see him back in the league. He’s a Hall of Fame guy, and I don’t know if he’s got the record for wins, but it’s an all-time. It’s good to see him back in the league. Great player for a long time.
