Darryl Sutter’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
SUTTER: “Actually, I thought we played better than we did in the last game. The difference was 22’s [Daniel Sedin] and 33’s [Henrik Sedin’s] performance. … I thought we played really well. We had a good first period. Lots of good looks. That’s how close it was.’’

(on the need to be more aggressive against the Sedins…)
SUTTER: “Well, they’re tough guys to be aggressive against. They’re pretty smart guys. If you can manage them, in the time-and-space fashion, and don’t take any penalties, you probably have a chance.’’

(on the long break before Game 5…)
SUTTER: “I didn’t like having two days between these last two. I don’t like having three now. Your series used to be encapsulized and so tight, and staying in the mood.’’

(on Fraser’s second-period penalty…)
SUTTER: “I thought that line played really well. It may have been our best line.’’

(on what changed for the Canucks…)
SUTTER: “I didn’t think either team did much different than they did (before). Obviously it was a big lift for them, getting guys back. Quite honestly, it’s a fine line. We’re not a team that scores a lot, and you’ve got to score on your opportunities. We had a borderline-whistle non-goal and we missed a penalty shot. We could be standing here talking about a totally different thing right now. There’s not much difference.’’
