Kings Coach Darryl Sutter’s Game 4 press conference was a little uncomfortable (VIDEO)

The Los Angeles Kings had a coronation on their minds during Game 4, but the New Jersey Devils delayed the seemingly inevitable with a 3-1 victory. Afterwards, Kings Coach Darryl Sutter spoke with the media and … things got weird.

Watch Sutter get confused by a question about "Patrik Ely-issss" and then exasperated by a query about the Kings' inability to sweep teams.

Here's the official transcript, a press conference of Tortorellian proportions:

Q.  What was the difference tonight?

COACH SUTTER: Not much. Pretty much overtime in the third period, same as first two games.

Q.  Was there a breakdown on the Elias goal?  If so, what happened there from your perspective?

COACH SUTTER: Which goal?

Q.  Elias' goal.

COACH  SUTTER: Henrique's goal? It's a turnover. Misplay between the defensemen. Not a coverage play. Can't make those long passes and think you can get away with it.

Q. Game 4 has been somewhat of a problem for you guys. You're 3-3 now when you can close out a series.

COACH SUTTER: Awesome. Close out a series in Game 4 (laughter). It's the Stanley Cup Final. Game is the very same as the first two games.

Annnnnnd scene.
