Sutter postgame quotes (Feb. 21)

Darryl Sutter’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
SUTTER: “You give up three power-play goals on the road, you’re probably going to have a tough time winning.’’

(on losing momentum after the early penalty in the second period…)
SUTTER: “It’s an easy read. It’s not (about) the penalty. It’s an easy read. Kopi gets beat for the goal. It’s simple. Then, on tying one, Drew gets beat. These are easy plays, right? Kopi has got his man, and then loses him. They win a faceoff and they tie it. You can say it’s penalty killing, but penalty killing has been awesome. Those are plays that you (have to) make 5-on-5 too.’’

(on whether the Kings got too “loose” in the second period…)
SUTTER: “I don’t think so. I don’t think `loose’ had anything to do with it. As I said, they scored three power-play goals. They made it 3-2 on two power plays. We made it 4-2. I don’t think that had anything to do with it. It’s too bad. All those games Jonathan (Quick) has been in those low-scoring games, he doesn’t win a high-scoring game.’’
