Sutter postgame quotes (May 3)

Darryl Sutter’s postgame thoughts…

(on the game…)
SUTTER: “I thought it was a really good hockey game. I think there were a lot of good things.’’

(on Mike Richards’ game…)
SUTTER: “I thought he took the bull by the horns tonight. He did an awesome job.’’

(on Dustin Brown’s game…)
SUTTER: “There was a lot of contact when he was out there. Boom. Jeez.’’

(on being impressed with Brown…)
SUTTER: “I’m impressed with our team right now. We’ve got to take a break and get ready again. It’s not about individuals.’’

(on rebounding quickly from in-game adversity and not panicking…)
SUTTER: “I don’t think you get to this point by panicking, that’s for sure. I think you’ve got to score big goals. It’s simple. You can manage it however you want, but hey, Mike Richards, that’s a big power-play goal too.’’

(on the Kings’ defensive-zone play…)
SUTTER: “We didn’t give up many shots, but we could have managed the puck better in our zone. There were times when some of our younger guys have to have a little more composure with the puck.’’

(on Dwight King’s goal being an example of full-team contributions…)
SUTTER: “It’s not about individuals, and it does take everybody. It’s good for Kinger. He’s had an interesting series.’’

(on the Blues’ physical play…)
SUTTER: “It is about contact. It is. I’m sure they made a point of it, about talking about it and trying to do it. You have to be able to play through it, but you also have to be there to give and take.’’

(on getting a power-play goal…)
SUTTER: “The percentages, I couldn’t really care less about, right? It’s about scoring a big goal, and that’s a big goal.’’

(on celebrating this win….)
SUTTER: “I don’t think there’s any reason to, because you don’t get nothing for three.’’

(on the game…)
SUTTER: “I thought it was as good of a third period and we’ve probably played in three months.’’

(on players saying they still think they can be better…)
SUTTER: “That’s a good way to feel, because it’s tough to beat a team that is that much ahead of you in the regular season. We just went through it.’’
