Final: Kings 3, Coyotes 2

Drew Doughty said his 28-game goal-scoring drought didn’t worry him in the least.

He also admitted he lied.

Doughty’s first goal of the season came as a giant relief to the Kings’ defenseman. It also propelled the Kings to a 3-2 victory Tuesday night over the Phoenix Coyotes at Staples Center, a game that also featured a career-high 40 saves for goaltender Jonathan Bernier.

“I was obviously worried. I was just saying that,” Doughty said. “It’s good to get one. Hopefully, I can get on a roll here now. I’m a streaky scorer, so I’m hoping it continues. I’ve had a lot of good chances, especially tonight. I had four or five good ones. It’s good I’ve been getting those chances. Now I’ve just got to bear down and put them by the goalie.”
