Raw post-game thoughts from Drew Doughty after Kings win in Anaheim

On beating the Ducks:

“It kind of set the tone for the season. I think we play them at home next, so it kind of set the tone for that game, too. I’m sure both teams in that game will have more of their full lineups dressed. We’re happy with the win. We didn’t play too well in both of our last exhibition games, so now we have to kind of get this momentum and take it over into the season.”

On him and Corey Perry “hugging it out” during the third period:

“I don’t know… I don’t know about hugging it out. We were chirping a little bit and I was just trying to not let him get to the pile. As we all know, I’m not the best fighter in the world.”

On his weight coming into the season:

“This season I’m a little bit heavier than I was. At the beginning of last season, I came in at around 205. I felt quick out there, but I didn’t feel strong enough in the d-zone. So, this season I decided to come in a little heavier, try to play at the weight I was playing through playoffs- around 210. I think I feel a lot better there. With more exhibition games, my feet will get quicker, but I feel a lot stronger and I think that’s an important thing for moving guys around the d-zone.”

On playing with Jake Muzzin:

“I think Muzz and I play really well together. On exiting our own zone, neutral zone, offensive zone, with the puck- we’re unbelievable. I think we can definitely improve in areas without the puck. That just comes with playing with each other and getting used to each other. I think we could be a really good pairing one day if we keep working at it.”

On if he wants to pair with Muzzin:

“I’m definitely not against it, that’s for sure. I think out of all the other d-men, I move the puck the best with him. It’s part of my game and something I love to do. Whoever I’m paired with, I’m going to make the best of it, but if it’s Muzz I think we will be really good together.”
