Kings coach Darryl Sutter has made a habit of not answering even the most straight-forward questions when the mood strikes him. He did it again before Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, although it could be argued that he answered exactly as he wanted to during a post-morning skate session with reporters.
Steve Levy of ESPN asked Sutter, “What concerns you most about tonight’s Game 3 here in New York.” Without pausing, Sutter responded without a trace of humor, “I think the biggest concern would be that we’re coming into Madison Square Garden and playing the New York Rangers.”
When the laughter died for a moment, Sutter added, “Makes sense.”
When it died again, he said, “It’s logical.”
More laughter followed, including from Levy, who clearly expected a more expansive answer from Sutter. Guess he hasn’t been paying attention.
