February 20 postgame quotes: Drew Doughty

On the strong defensive effort over the previous two games:
“Yeah, the goalies both played great the last two games. The defense has been doing well. We’re playing well defensively. It starts with moving pucks well. We’re doing a good job with that. We’re getting pucks up to the forwards and letting them get in on the forecheck, and that’s what we’ve got to continue to do.”

On Jonathan Bernier’s performance:
“He made some big saves the whole game. A lot of times when the puck was coming at the net, he was holding onto it. Those rebounds are usually where teams can capitalize, and he minimized those to the best of his ability. He was awesome tonight.”

On playing with multiple defensive partners:
“I thought that all of us played well tonight. I thought that every single D-man was on their game. That was a big part of why we were successful.”

On Calgary’s challenges at advancing the puck:
“Our neutral zone forecheck is key. We’ve got to take away their speed and match their intensity, and that’s what we did.”
