Trevor Lewis on what’s wrong with Drew Doughty

Post-practice comments from Trevor Lewis…

– On being the man of the hour: “No, I don’t think so. Yeah I think I was playing pretty well before that. Just because I got a few points. I mean it’s always nice for the confidence, but I think my game is hard work and the hard work paid off. It felt good.”

– On being moved to the left side: “I think offensively it gives you a lot more options. Options to be creative just coming in. Kind of on your back hand, and having more time with the D. The D kinda doesn’t know what you’re doing so offensively I think it’s definitely better. Defensively, I mean it’s going to take a little bit to get used to. It’s definitely a lot different pivoting to that side because I’m used to pivoting the other way. I’ve been working on it and getting better at it now.”

– On the communication from Richards and Carter while they’re on the ice: “I don’t think they say they want me to do this or that, but they do give me pointers, and obviously I kind of know how they play. You know you get Richards the puck and Carter is a shooter. So you just get open. I think my jobs kinda to get pucks deep, get pucks to those guys and let them do their thing.”

– On the funniest off-ice incident on the road trip: “I can’t remember anything specific right now, but it was probably something that Dewey said”

– On Doughty saying he doesn’t know why the Canadian media largely left him alone on the just-completed road trip: “He has bad breath, probably.”
