Doughty OK after another incident

There was another nervous Drew Doughty moment tonight, early in the third period, when Doughty was bumped into the bench area by Columbus’ RJ Umberger, then went nose-first into the “turnbuckle” padding at the end of the bench. Doughty fell and was flat on his stomach for a few moments, and briefly went to the locker room but returned for his regular complement of minutes in the third period. After the game, Doughty said there were no issues.

DOUGHTY: “I’m fine. Obviously I was back out there again, so I’m fine. I just got it right on the nose again. There was a little bit of blood, but nothing drastic. I didn’t see the turnbuckle there. I kind of had my head down, making the play, and I ran right into it. But I’m fine, and he obviously didn’t mean to do it. … I missed a couple shifts, just to come in here [the locker room] and make sure i was symptom-free, but everything was fine.”
