The Different Sides Of Darryl Sutter

from Lisa Dillman of the LA Times,

If you don’t like the personality of Kings Coach Darryl Sutter, then simply wait five minutes for the cold front to swirl out the door….

Sutter was at his contrarian and charming best Thursday, all within about an hour on the day after the Kings’ first stumble in the playoffs this season, a 3-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks. In between there was some vintage, “sarcastic-ness,” a word invented by defenseman Drew Doughty the other day, in an effort to explain Sutter’s impact.

The Kings hold a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven series against the Canucks. Game 5 is scheduled for Sunday in Vancouver but a start time has not been announced by the league….

“It’s only the Stanley Cup playoffs, only Game 5,” Sutter said. “But we don’t know what time we’re playing Sunday. And we have to set travel and practice plans. I hope it’s not interfering with anything else.”

Perhaps some of that “sarcastic-ness” should bused against Sutter for insisting on rotating 4 lines. His 4th line had two dumb penalties at critical times which cost LA the momentum in the second, which they never really got back, and again late in the 3rd when they were trying to get back in the game.
