October 28 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the team finding its bearings after the first period:
I thought we played well. I thought we had some road legs early, and after the first 10 minutes we played really well.

On the Jarret Stoll line:
We had three good lines tonight.

On how he “rolls lines” playing a forward short:
We don’t have four lines. I’m not rolling lines, because you don’t have four lines.

On how Quick “bailed out” the team:
He made some big saves early right around the net. They used the back of the net in the first period a lot against us, something that usually were really good at defending. It makes it tough for the goalie when you see the puck behind the net a lot because he’s not sure what way it’s coming out.

On the team’s efforts despite personnel challenges:
Well, we had a left winger out, a centerman out, a right winger out and a defenseman out. So that’s a quarter of our lineup.
