Doughty postgame quotes - LA Kings Insider

Drew Doughty’s postgame thoughts…

(on his second penalty…)
DOUGHTY: “I had just gotten out of the box and I came out and took another penalty, and they pretty much scored right away. So obviously, I am not happy with myself for taking that penalty, but it sucks to lose.”

(on the Kings’ slump…)
DOUGHTY: “We know, as a team, we haven’t been creating as many chances as we’d like, and we’ve got to get back to the basics. Getting pucks to the net and getting guys to the goal, that is the only way we are going to be able to score goals. We just need to focus on getting our shots on target, first of all, and having a body in front.”

(on whether he thought his second penalty was a good call…)
DOUGHTY: “No, I didn’t, but at the same time, I’m not going to feel sorry for myself or anything like that. Whether it was a dive or not, we can’t change it now, so we’ve got to look at the bad things we did in this game, and the good things, and improve on the bad things. The next game, it’s a must-win. There’s no way we can lose that game.”

(on the defensive giveaways…)
DOUGHTY: “We definitely don’t want to be making giveaways anywhere on the ice. Sometimes things happen. After those giveaways, we just have to make sure that we don’t try to do too much to make up for it, and just play our game. Next game, I think we’ve just got to get pucks in deep. That’s all we can do. We don’t want to be making plays at their blue line. We just have to get pucks in and, in our defensive zone, get them out.”
