Doughty postgame quotes

Drew Doughty’s postgame thoughts…

(on the power-play success with him and Jack Johnson…)
DOUGHTY: “Me and Jack have wanted to play together for a little while here. We’ve been on separate PP units, and they finally put us together tonight and you saw what we can do together. Hopefully we can continue to produce like that.”

(on Smyth getting credit for the two goals…)
DOUGHTY: “He told me he didn’t tip either, but I guess they gave them both to him. [smiles] I don’t know. I guess we’ll see what happens here. Whether I scored or not, it doesn’t really matter. We won the game and got two goals on the power play, which is huge for us.”

(on Smyth’s high popularity in Edmonton…)
DOUGHTY: “Yeah, apparently. I think we all know that he’s `Captain Canada,’ so they love him here in Edmonton.”

(on his back-and-forth with Taylor Hall…)
DOUGHTY: “I didn’t really think there was a rivalry. I was trying to make the hit and he nailed me in the nose, so obviously I was a little (upset) about it, but once I got back out there, it wasn’t about getting back at him. I was just playing hard and trying to not let him get a goal.”
