Doughty postgame quotes (May 13)

Drew Doughty’s postgame thoughts…

(on taking a 1-0 lead in this series…)
DOUGHTY: “I thought (the game) was pretty tight. I thought we played some great hockey, but at the same time we played some sloppy hockey. We came out hard in that first period. The first five minutes, I thought we dominated. That was our main focus coming into it. To get this first one out of the way, and have this win, is huge.’’

(on the speed of the game…)
DOUGHTY: “I thought everyone on the team was skating. We had that long break, and everyone was so anxious to get started. Everyone bursted out all their energy that we had saved up, into tonight’s game, and I thought everyone was flying. One thing we have to make sure we’re doing is tape-to-tape plays. When we weren’t doing that, that’s the only time we ran into troubles.’’

(on Mikkel Boedker’s goal…)
DOUGHTY: “It’s a tough one. I was telling him to set up the puck for me the way he did. It just happened that the guy got in between Quickie and the net and cut me off. I wish I could have maybe rimmed the puck or something like that. I don’t know what I should have done with it, but it was kind of a tough play and the guy did a good job on the forecheck. Next time, I’ve definitely got to do something with the puck and not let that happen.’’
