Drew Doughty on his game winning goal vs Phoenix

After a little initial confusion, less than a minute into overtime, Drew Doughty’s goal stood and the Kings beat the Phoenix Coyotes by the final score of 1-0. Here’s what he had to say back in the locker room…

On the game-winning goal – “It was huge. Obviously, I haven’t been scoring a lot this year and I finally contributed on the score sheet with a goal for the team and most importantly get the win. I was real happy. Greener changed for me there; I just wanted to get into the play. I saw that we had control of the puck so I raced up to the blue line. Me and Stolly [Jarret Stoll] made eye contact and made a nice pass. Then I just tried to drive the net and sometimes you just have to score those dirty goals like that.”

On going suck a long time without scoring – “I don’t know, I guess it is a little surprising. Most of all, for me, it’s just frustrating. I know that they come in bunches and now that I got this one and finally got the monkey off my back I think a lot more will come in these next few games.”
