Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson have periodically been paired together this season, usually during the third period of a tight game. Tuesday’s game was the first time that Doughty and Johnson were paired together for an entire game and reviews, at least from Terry Murray, were good…
Question: What was the thought process when you decided to put Doughty and Johnson together?
MURRAY: “Just like we do with the forwards, we’re looking for some chemistry on our blue line. We had some good chemistry with Drew and O’Donnell, but we felt that in the Phoenix game, Greene and Jack were a little out of sync. They ended up being on the ice for some plays that hurt us. Change sometimes brings focus back to details. When you change, you’re maybe not just relying on instinctive play as much. You really have to be alert when you’re playing as a new pair. Those kids played big minutes and important minutes for us.”
