Drew Doughty – morning skate Game 3

Following the Kings’ Game 3 morning skate, here’s what Drew Doughty shared with MayorsManor…

On the most important thing he did yesterday to prepare for tonight:

“Had a good meal.  Me and Lewy decided to cook last night.  So for the most part just kind of relaxing.   Watching some other hockey games, and just making sure that our bodies were physically and mentally prepared. (Who cooked?) We split it.  He does like the salad and potatoes and broccoli, and I cooked the steaks up.  So I guess he’s more the cook.  I’m just the BBQ’er.”

On if he’ll be watching the Kentucky Derby this afternoon or taking a nap:

“Oh, I don’t care for horse racing.  (Is that an all American thing?) Definitely an American thing.  I’m sure some Canadians care about it, but not me.  Probably Willie Mitchell. He’d be the one.  He’s kind of the outcast Canadian guy on the team.”

On if he’s spoken with Mitchell:

“No, I haven’t.  Haven’t been able to talk to him at all actually, and I’m sure that whenever the season’s over or whatever that I’ll get together with him and make up for some lost time this year.”

On if he thinks tonight is a must win:

“Yeah, I think so.  I would use that.  It’s definitely a must win tonight.  If we get this win tonight, it’s a series changer.  It’s the biggest game of the series.  We can either be down three-nothing and on the verge of losing one game and being out, or we can be down 2-1 and have another game at home where we can win that one and go back to St. Louis tied 2-2.  But right now it’s just this one game that we’re focusing on, and it’s definitely must win.”

On the difference between Sutter’s approach this year versus last year given the difference in results:

“He’s been pretty upset with us the last two games.  We haven’t played well.  We haven’t played our game.  We’ve seen little spurts of our game and how good we can play, but for the most part we haven’t put a full 60 minutes together, and that’s the most important thing in playoffs.  Is playing a full 60 minutes, and winning games that way.”

On if he feels they can beat the Blues without Matt Greene:

“Yeah, I think so.  For sure.  We’ve got a great team in here.  Even though Matt’s a great player, and a big part of our team.  We have other guys that can kind of take his place and kind of play his role.  I think that that shouldn’t be a factor into why we win or lose.”

  1. Haha oh Drew… I love that he says Mitchell is the “outcast Canadian” in the group.

    And FWIW, not that my opinion matters, I thought he’s been one of the more consistent players lately
