December 22 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter

On the “fluke” goal that deflected off Drew Doughty:
Not really. I think that the score was really not an indication of the play. About halfway through the game, I think they had a lot more desperation that our team. It wasn’t the puck off the skate that was a lucky break. At that point, that made it three-three. To make it three-two is not enough work on our part for the second goal.

On being “aware” of Calgary pulling its goalie:
We were talking about it with three or four minutes left when their team was down two. Pulling the goalie didn’t make any difference. Those are individual mistakes. Two individual mistakes.

On Johnny Gaudreau’s goal at the end of the second period:
The power play goal? Yeah. Stolly broke his stick, so you know what? Not much you can do about it there. [Reporter: He still blocked the shot.] Yeah. He broke his stick prior to coming into the zone, and then he dropped it in his zone.
