Doughty says Kings will ‘do anything to win’ game five

Doughty cleared out in Game 2

Over the last 36 hours, much has been about Drew Doughty‘s exchange with Scott Nichol in game four – which led to a power play goal for the Sharks.

Yet, that wasn’t the only target of Doughty’s verbal assault on Thursday night. He also spent plenty of time in the face of Joe Thornton throughout the game.

It’s something I spoke with him about yesterday, after first finding out how he was feeling going into game five…

MM: Prior to the series starting you were pretty confident. How about now, being down 3-1?

DD: I still think we are fully confident. We saw the things we could do to them. We’ve had moments of domination. We’ve just got to clean up our d-zone. I think if we clean that up, really focus on that and just keep getting goals the way we are, we’re going to be fine.

MM: You were jawing with Thornton quite a bit on Thursday. Was his blowing kisses to Sharks fans in the crowd a bit disrespectful?

DD: I don’t know if it was disrespectful. It’s an emotional time in the playoffs. Obviously, Thorts and I have played together before (Team Canada) and were buddies then. But, there’s just so many emotions and so much hatred for the other team, that you want to beat them. And we’re going to do anything to win that game.

Do that Drew, and we’ll see you back home on Monday for game six.
