Doughty postgame quotes

Quotes from Drew Doughty’s postgame interview with Bob and Jim. Doughty started off by joking about his non-shot shot that trickled past Backstrom and gave the Kings the win…

(on the Kings’ road success…)
DOUGHTY: “I don’t know why we don’t play like that at home, but we play well on the road. That game was a really tight checking game and, overall, just a really good, sound, defensive hockey game. In that third (period) and overtime, we really took it to them, and I thought we did a great job tonight.”

(on pairing with Jack Johnson for the first time in a full game…)
DOUGHTY: “You know, it’s awesome. Me and Jack are both more offensive-minded defensemen, and we work really well together. We communicate well on the ice, and we make little plays that maybe some other defensemen don’t make. I think we both enjoy that and I think we feed off each other very well.”

(on his progress in his rookie season…)
DOUGHTY: “You know, I’ve had a lot of help from Sean O’Donnell. He has been my defense partner pretty much the entire year. Coming in, it was tough, because the guys were so much bigger and so much more skilled. My defensive game was one thing I really had to work on, and Sean O’Donnell helped me out so much. He talks to me between periods, on the ice, at all times. Without him, it would be a really difficult season for me.”

    Resign O’Donnell.

    He is 1000 times the mentor Blake will ever be, anyone think maybe even Johnson would be further along in his game if Sean were here last year instead good ol Rob?

    Noble Savage, I agree with you 100 percent. The 2 years he was with the Kings he was worthless!
