Here’s what Kings coach Darryl Sutter said when someone asked if he felt compassion for Edmonton Oilers goalie Tyler Bunz, who gave up three goals on 12 shots in the third period in his NHL debut Thursday at Staples Center:
“Yeah, damn right. He hasn’t played much in the American (Hockey) League either and that’s not an easy situation to go into. He’s a pro. He’ll learn from it and he’ll be better for it. He’s a good western Canadian.”
Bunz hails from St. Albert, Alberta. Sutter is from Viking, Alberta.
