Drew Doughty's postgame thoughts… (on beating Calgary…) DOUGHTY: ``In my three years here, I think that was the best 60 minutes we've played against that team.

Doughty’s `power’ numbers

Drew Doughty's play has been discussed at great length, and for a defenseman, it's often not about the statistics. But sometimes it is.
