The question, “Will Drew Doughty play tonight?’’ was essentially answered at the end of the morning skate, when Slava Voynov came off the ice with a couple other defensemen and Doughty remained out for extra work. Doughty got in a second day of full practice but will not play tonight against Dallas. Terry Murray, though, made it sound as though Doughty is a strong possibility for Saturday’s game at Phoenix.
MURRAY: “He’s not cleared to play. He’s cleared to practice, full contact in practice, by the doctor. So he’s getting close, getting better. He’s on the ice doing everything. We’ll get through one more game here without him, and hopefully we can make a decision after that.’’
