December 3 postgame quotes: Drew Doughty

On the team coming from a goal down to win in a nine-round shootout:
It’s huge. We don’t like to be giving up points to teams in our division, and even though that happened, we got the two, they got the one. We’re happy with that but we’d like to win that in regulation. It was a great job by the boys. I thought we dominated that third period, besides them getting the power plays there. The penalty kill did a great job again. I wish we could’ve gotten it done in regulation.

On Martin Jones’ performance:
That was amazing. He played great for us, and to step up like that in a shootout and save as many as he did in a row against some of the best players in the league in Getzlaf and Perry, that’s unbelievable. He’s a great guy, and I’m really happy for him.

On the bench’s response to the consecutive saves:
Oh boy. You have no idea how happy we are for him, just as an individual, and happy as a team that he’s doing the job for us. All the chatter after we won, after we got in the dressing room after the game, it’s all about Jonesy. He was unbelievable for us tonight. He made huge saves throughout the whole game, not only in the shootout. Without him in there tonight, we wouldn’t have won.

On the shootout, and whether he noticed he was being booed:
I did. I don’t know if that was the fans saying ‘Drew’ from LA. No, I’m just joking. I was happy to get in there. I usually don’t, and I have some pretty good shootout moves, and I’m disappointed I didn’t score, but hey, we won, so I’m over it now.
