Doughty postgame quotes (April 15)

Drew Doughty’s postgame thoughts…

(on Jonathan Quick’s game…)

DOUGHTY: “He played unbelievable tonight. We felt like they definitely outplayed us tonight. They had a lot of quality scoring chances, and he came up big when he had to make that save. It was a great job by him tonight, and to get that win was huge.’’

(on leading 3-0 in the series, with two days off coming up…)
DOUGHTY: “We can’t take our foot off the pedal. We’ve got to keep going. We’ve got three days off, and we have to make sure we’re refocused. We have to start focusing on the next game at hand. It’s another must-win game. We don’t want to give them any momentum by winning one game in our barn and then taking it back to theirs. It’s a huge game, and a must-win.’’

(on whether Dustin Brown’s hit on Henrik Sedin changed the momentum…)

DOUGHTY: “I don’t know. It was definitely a big hit by Brownie. That was one of the better hits I’ve seen in a long time. To do it on a star player, their best player, is just an ever keyer part. It definitely gave us some momentum, to show that our leadership was the showing the way to go. We’ve all just got to follow that.’’

(on Brown’s play in this series…)

DOUGHTY: “He has scored some huge goals for us, and at the same time he’s playing well defensively and making those big hits. That’s what we need from our captain. He’s leading, on and off the ice, and scoring big goals like that is going to take us a long way.’’
