Drew Doughty previews Kings at Ducks

Some comments from defenseman Drew Doughty following the Kings’ morning skate in advance of tonight’s game in Anaheim…

On playing the Anaheim Ducks in back-to-back games:

“It’s fun playing teams back-to-back. To be honest, I don’t think anyone here is thinking about that stadium game. Everyone else is making a big deal about it but really we have to win tonight’s game. We’ve been on a little bit of a skid here, we need to get out of it and we need to start winning games. What better to way to start winning games in Anaheim at their home rink.”

On previously beating the Ducks at Honda Center in a shootout:

“Yeah, I feel like when we go to the Honda Center, we use the momentum from our fans. When we score, besides the goal horn, it’s almost as loud when our fans cheer. We’re looking forward to this game. We love playing Anaheim- they’re first place, they’re a team we want to catch and beat. It’s going to be a hard fought game.”
