Anybody who's watched the Los Angeles Kings this season has to already know that coach Darryl Sutter doesn't have much interest in wasting his time answering questions.
This was especially true after his team's 3-1 loss to the Devils in Game 4 on Wednesday night, pushing the Stanley Cup Final back to New Jersey for a Game 5 on Saturday night.
Here is the complete transcript of his meeting with the media, which doesn't even begin to show just how awkward the entire thing was (just watch the video posted above). Especially as he was confused by the second question regarding Patrik Elias' second-period goal.
So instead of addressing that play, he simply talked about Adam Henrique's game-winning goal.
Q. What was the difference tonight?That's a press conference that even John Tortorella could be proud of.
SUTTER: Not much. Pretty much overtime in the third period, same as first two games.
Q. Was there a breakdown on the Elias goal? If so, what happened there from your perspective?
SUTTER: Which goal?
Q. Elias' goal.
COACH SUTTER: Henrique's goal? It's a turnover. Misplay between the defensemen. Not a coverage play. Can't make those long passes and think you can get away with it.
Q. Game 4 has been somewhat of a problem for you guys. You're 3-3 now when you can close out a series.
COACH SUTTER: Awesome. Close out a series in Game 4 (laughter). It's the Stanley Cup Final. Game is the very same as the first two games.
