December 8 postgame quotes: Darryl Sutter - LA Kings Insider

On the lack of scoring chances in the game:
I don’t think our top guys were very sharp, and they didn’t have any scoring chances.

On whether the effort was “disappointing” after several days off:
No, it’s disappointing because it’s the third time this year we’ve had three days between games, and that first game after the three days we’ve been, for lack of a better word, [road apples]. Go back to Philly-Minnesota, San Jose the last time they played in here, and this one here. Our top guys were not very efficient out there maximizing what their God gave ‘em. [Reporter: Is that because they’re taking things for granted, you think?] No, I don’t think that’s the right word. I think the word would be ‘using the time properly to prepare to be a great competitor.’

On Jeff Zatkoff:
He didn’t have a lot of work. The first goal, they’re both … odd man or outnumbered situations. Hey, you know, quite honest it tells you that when they called two boys up because of injuries – Derek Ryan and Brock McGinn – they scored all three goals for ‘em, so it tells you, what’s the thing that equals everything out? Compete? Try hard? All those things.
