Drew Doughty talks day games and his personal performance

Doughty Kings practice 02-22-2013 MayorsManor
Comments from Drew Doughty after Kings practice today…

– On coming home: “Feel good. It’s good to be home. Seems like we’ve been on the road all season. So to finally be able to sleep in our own bed, play in front of our own fans; it will be fun.”

– On day game struggles: “I think just individually we all gotta step it up. You know it’s different getting ready for an afternoon game, but the other team is going through the same thing. So it’s not like we can use it as an excuse or anything like that. We just gotta you know step up to the plate and win a big game tomorrow.”

– On the personal challenge of a day game: “No, it’s not a challenge. It’s different, I kind of like it. You know I’m the type of guy where waiting around all day for the day to come. Like I hate going to the rink practicing, going back home, and then just waiting 7 hours or whatever it is for the game to finally start. So I kind of like the fact that you know a 1 o’clock game just kind of starts and I don’t have anything to think about.”

– On his personal performance during the road trip: “I thought I was pretty good in Calgary. Edmonton I was okay. So Calgary maybe I thought I played pretty well. Just happy with you know my defensive game in that game, trying to shut down their big guys. So I thought we did a pretty good job about it.”

– On the Canadian media: “It was fun. They stayed away from me for the most part, so I was happy.”

– On why they stayed away: “I don’t know, I have no idea why, but it didn’t bother me.”

Trevor Lewis has an idea why…and we’ll post those comments next.
