May 2 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On Jonathan Quick taking the blame for the loss:
“I think he was screened. I don’t know if he picked it up right away. I think he didn’t pick it up. That’s what it looked like the bench.”

On what led to the odd-man rush and Barret Jackman’s goal:
“Both teams are trying to score. Basically, it’s overtime.”

On players saying that the team played a strong 40 minutes:
“Well, we haven’t scored a five-on-five goal in almost seven periods, so it doesn’t matter how you translate it. You’re not going to win any games if we don’t score a goal five-on-five.”

On what St. Louis was doing effectively to limit time and space:
“Two top defensive teams, shots against in the league. There’s no surprises, really. It’s just a lot of hard inches and tough shifts out there.”

On the team’s strong play at home:
“Just got to go back and try and win one game, right? I’ve been down this road enough times to know that.”
