Sutter answers Game 2 questions with a series of his own questions


We had a feeling the transcript of L.A. coach Darryl Sutter’s postgame presser was going to be good when Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tweeted “the informality to Darryl Sutter presser was tremendous.”

Sure enough, it was.

After his Kings defeated the Devils 2-1 in overtime of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals, Sutter spent a good chunk of his media availability just shooting the breeze, havin’ a rap sesh…and oh yeah, asking reporters what they thought of the game.

Q.  How would you say your team played tonight?

COACH SUTTER:  I thought it was a hell of a battle. What did you think? Were you happy with how our team played tonight?  

Q.  Can you talk a little bit about Jeff Carter, the winning goal.

COACH SUTTER:  Good to see him score, right?

Q.  Can you talk about Doughty’s goal.

COACH SUTTER:  Made a great play. You know what, a 200-foot play, right?  

Now that’s how you conduct a press conference without actually saying anything or offering any intel.

Somewhere, John Tortorella is seething about not coming up with the idea first.
