How much pressure is Kings defenseman Drew Doughty placing on his shoulders for Game 7 on Wednesday against the San Jose Sharks? Apparently, quite a lot judging by his comments after the team’s morning skate.
“You treat this Game 7 as if it is the Olympic gold medal game or the Stanley Cup Final,” Doughty said. “For me, personally, I need to have an unbelievable game for our team to win tonight. I need my ‘A’ game. I need to do everything right. I need to play well defensively. I need to chip in on the offense. I need to dominate on special teams, so that’s just how I look at it.”
