Sutter not ‘rattled,’ just glad he’s alive

Darryl Sutter has been around hockey long enough to know it’s a funny game. Sometimes — actually, fairly often — the final score doesn’t reflect which team controlled the contest.

Case in point, Game 4 of his Kings’ series with the Ducks, a 2-0 Anaheim victory in which Los Angeles doubled the Ducks in shots, 28-14.

And what about Game 2, when it was the opposite scenario: L.A. was badly outshot, 37-17, but managed to win, 3-1?

“It’s the way it goes,” Sutter said yesterday (video).

And is knowing that helpful at this time of the year?

“Yeah, I’m not rattled,” he said. “I’m just thankful I’m alive. I’m fortunate to pull through after a devastating loss last night. Radar and Hawkeye had to get me up to come here today.”

For all you kids out there, that’s a M*A*S*H reference. (Again, he’s been around a while.)

Game 5 of the series goes tonight in Anaheim.

    Darryl’s right …

    Especially when you think back to our predicament after that 3rd loss to the Sharks. Man, it seemed like everyone at the time was laughing and calling for our heads … even certain ‘misguided’ writers on the PHT editorial team wrote several ‘hurtful’ articles about our mix being in question, etc ? Well we sure proved them wrong eh ? :)

    Regardless friends, the truth at this point of the proceedings is that ‘nobody’ knows what’s going to happen next except for the man upstairs himself … God’s ‘will’ if you please. And in that context I do honestly believe that ‘we’ will prevail, especially given the superior ‘humility and decency’ of our LA Kings fan base and LA County in general …


    GO DECENCY !!!

    GO LA KINGS !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You have proven you’re insane. There is absolutely ZERO humility and decency in LA County. You must live in a cave way up in the hills. You definitely never went to a Raiders game either. wow, You and “your” team are delusional blomfelcher

      Boo Freakin Who, they wrote a hurtful story. Maybe you should toughen up Nancy Boy….

        ‘May the heels of decency ‘forever’ be brought down upon the heads of those who are wicked’ … people like Cyggyx1 and such as …

      He looks like my uncle, but less Italian.
      I started out a Kings fan, good ole days. Enjoyed the days of Kelly Hrudey

        Kelly Hrudey is the “good ole days”?

        Dude, Rogie Vachon and Marcel Dionne are the Good Ole Days. Hrudey, Tonelli, Robitaille, etc are the recent past :)

        Learn how to read a sentence. There is a period And! a capital E between the two statements.

        “recent past”, Well, that’s open to interpretation isn’t it? Just depends on the individual what recent means. 😉

    I’m detecting a hint of humility?

    looking closely at darryl’s picture, he appears to be of two minds …

    regret over his ill-advised choice of a texas-sized haberño chili dog with choice of rainbow jalapeño sauce, and the health and welfare of his players and of kings fans eight rows back

    they’re all glad they’re alive

    Sutter is hilarious. If you ever wanted to know what Rocky Balboa would sound like loaded up on valium, watch a Kings presser.
