Ducks lean on Smith-Pelly and Gibson, who’s impressed(?) Darryl Sutter

The Anaheim Ducks used a 3-goal second period and a pair of Devante Smith-Pelly goals to build a 4-1 lead over the Los Angeles Kings, and then they held on, leaning hard on John Gibson (who stopped 39 of 42 shots against) to defeat the Kings 4-3, taking a 3-games-to-2 lead in the teams' second-round series...

But the coaches stole the show in both of Monday night's games, with Kings coach Darryl Sutter delivering this zinger in his post-game presser (per LA Kings Insider's Jon Rosen). Prepare yourself for massive sarcasm!

On what has “most impressed” him about John Gibson:

He’s the best goalie I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe we got one by him tonight. A lot of pressure on him now. A lot of pressure on him.
