Doughty postgame quotes

Postgame thoughts of Drew Doughty, who earned a sizable contract bonus (more than $200,000) with his 10th goal of the season…

(on winning in Toronto, close to home…)
DOUGHTY: “It was awesome. I was obviously really excited to play here in Toronto. I had lots of friends and family here watching the game. And to get that win, it’s really important for the team as well, so it was great to get that one.”

(on Dustin Brown’s game…)
DOUGHTY: “He played a great game. He played fantastic for us. That’s why he’s our captain. When he leads by example like that, we all follow. I felt that when he picked up his game, and was making those nice plays and making hits, we all followed his lead and that’s why we won.”

(on fighting for playoff standing…)
DOUGHTY: “I know we’re in a battle there. If we had lost to Detroit, we would have been in eighth or ninth, something like that. That game against Detroit was really important, and this game was just as important.”

(on offensive production from defensemen…)
DOUGHTY: “I guess it just kind of worked out that way. Our game plan was definitely to get shots to the net, and that’s what a lot of us were doing. We were getting pucks to the goal, and we weren’t getting shots blocked. We were able to start a cycle and get some points.”
