LOS ANGELES -- The cattle on Darryl Sutter's 3,000-acre farm southeast of Edmonton need his attention about now. He's also supposed to be planting oats, barley, wheat and canola to feed the livestock, including 290 calves born in the last year.

Sutter's son-in-law can't do it all himself, so he's getting help from the community in Viking, Alberta, while Sutter chases the one remaining goal in his life that he can't reach on the farm.

After taking over the Los Angeles Kings at midseason and initially struggling to reach his talented club, this hockey lifer in a farmer's body has coached them to the brink of their first Stanley Cup triumph.

Sutter refuses any credit for his 66-game transformation of the Kings heading into Game 4 on Wednesday night.
