February 19 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter - LA Kings Insider

On what Anaheim did well to keep Los Angeles off the scoreboard:
It was a one-nothing game. It was a pretty well-played game by both hockey clubs. Two teams out there.

On whether it was a “typical” Kings-Ducks game:
This one probably didn’t have as many penalties called as most games, which is the way you want it. You want to play five-on-five. It was like a playoff game.

On the inability to score on chances:
Yeah, I’m not sure how many what you’d call quality chances our top guys had. I think you’ve got to be able to – what’s the old saying? – swim the river. Everybody’s got to be willing to do that. It’s tough out there.

On whether this is a “critical juncture” in the season:
Division games. Every division game to me is important.

On whether he got what he was looking for from the changes to defensive pairings:
No. We made a mistake on the goal. They had an easy turnover in the neutral zone. We moved guys around. Quite honest, we’ve got a couple defensemen that’ve had really tough times this season, so we split ‘em up tonight.
