Sutter Does Standup

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
After not trying very hard in front of the microphone for the first six games of the National Hockey League playoffs, Calgary Flames' coach Darryl Sutter conspicuously made himself the centre of attention Tuesday. Henny Youngman would have been proud. Sutter worked the room like a good comedian does, dishing on a bon mot here and a sly observation there. He talked about the refereeing – and the fact that his team had been put two men short seven times in the series as opposed to zero for the opposition Anaheim Mighty Ducks (actually six, but who's counting). He complained about the 8 p.m. PST start time for Game 6, noting that for his older players, that meant 9 o'clock body time – β€œor when they're used to having their jammies on.”
