Kings Vs. Flames: Darryl Sutter Returns To Calgary

The Kings are 8-5-5 on the road this season.

Darryl Sutter returns to Calgary as the Los Angeles Kings open a brief three-game, four-day road trip Saturday night against the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome. The Kings are 8-5-5 on the road this season.

Sutter coached the Flames for parts of three seasons, including a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2004, losing in seven games to the Vancouver Canucks, and was the team's general manager through December 2010. Sutter was 107-73-30 during his time in Calgary, a .581 winning percentage. Brother Brent Sutter will coach his 210th game with Calgary tonight, matching Darryl for the seventh-most games coached in Flames history.

Sutter downplayed his return to Calgary. "I have no feelings one way or another about it," Darryl Sutter told the Associated Press. "(Working in Calgary) was a great experience. I worked with great people and I got lots of friends. That's what it's about at the end of the day."

Saturday night's 7 p.m. PST game will be televised by Fox Sports West. For more news and information on Kings hockey, be sure to read Jewels From The Crown.
