EL SEGUNDO, CA — Since the Los Angeles Kings lost superstar goaltender Jonathan Quick to a grade two groin strain (a partial tear) at Buffalo on November 12, they have not missed a beat, earning an 8-1-4 record since that game.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — As any member of the local media who covers the Los Angeles Kings on a fairly regular basis will tell you, interviewing head coach Darryl Sutter is often quite the adventure.

Although he is certainly not the most forthcoming National Hockey League head coach, and even though he does, in his own, calculated way, use the media to send messages to his players—every coach does, to some extent—Sutter has a very good rapport with the local media, and every so often, his sense of humor makes an appearance, as it did following the team’s November 5 practice.
