Los Angeles Kings head coach Darryl Sutter is a man of few words and many wins.

Sutter has his team one win away from claiming its second Stanley Cup in three seasons after a 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night gave the Kings a commanding 3-0 series lead.

Despite Los Angeles’ recent success, however, Sutter never has been exactly exuberant with the media, opting for one-word answers and terse replies that would make Bill Belichick envious.

Sutter might leave the media wanting more, but his success with the Kings has been indisputable. Since taking over in L.A. in the middle of the 2011-12 season, Sutter has guided his team to 40 playoff wins, the most of any NHL team during that span, and won one Stanley Cup.
