EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Darryl Sutter is the first to acknowledge that most teams take on injuries like a boat taking on water, especially as the season gets longer. His Los Angeles Kings had their share with two-thirds of their top line and their top two defensemen playing with pain in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. But Sutter had some pointed words when he spoke Monday about how tough this season was to navigate and how difficult success is to sustain in the NHL. He doesn't see any missing pieces in the organization after the Kings were eliminated in the Western Conference Final by the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.
