Sure fatigue sets in faster, but hey it's easier to hit home runs, right?
Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter was asked about playing at high altitude in Denver before Tuesday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.
"The altitude?" Sutter said. "The ball carries better."
The pregame comedy stylings didn't stop there for the coach.
"I had a French player tell me once he didn't know what was wrong, he couldn't get no hair," Sutter said.
Sutter's got jokes, folks.
