“Give Richards a lot of credit,” Doan said. “He made a good play to give them the lead back and the momentum back. We didn’t have anyone do that back. At the same time, as a team we’ve got to learn to handle success so much better than we handle it at times.”

McLellan also reported on Mike Ribeiro’s stellar start to the season. Ribeiro, who returned to the Pacific Division after a one-year Washington exile, saw his seven-game point streak snapped as part of a minus-two effort.

Five for Howling also tackles the Kings-Coyotes rivalry. Dustin Brown is mentioned in the first paragraph, and the Dodgers’ victory swim at Chase Field is mentioned in the second.
