Game 7: Doughty and Sutter talk Kings taking out the Sharks

Post-game comments from the Kings locker room after eliminating the Sharks from the playoffs via a 5-1 victory in San Jose…

Doughty on not having a long break between series:

“When you’re waiting for games to be played and you’re sitting at home, waiting for the next series to start, it gets kind of boring. You just get anxious to get out there. It sucks, to be honest, sometimes when you’re just sitting there. I’m kind of happy, we’re just going to roll right into the next series. We’re going to use this momentum throughout the next series, especially in that first game. I think we’re going to have to go about it in a different way this time.”

Doughty on if he always believed that the Kings would make a comeback:

“I honestly did. Obviously, at first there is a little bit of doubt after you lose that third game, it’s like, ‘oh no, we’re down 3-0. Not only do we have to win one, now we have to win four.’ When I look around this room and I look at every single guy, I just 100 percent believe in them, and I know they believe in me as well. There was no doubt in our minds that we couldn’t come back in this series. Once you win one, they start thinking. Once you win two, they’re really thinking. Once you win three, they’re back on their heels.”

Doughty on if the Kings have the momentum going into Round 2:

“I think we do, yeah. We better use it though, I’ll tell you that. We can’t go down 3-0 again and expect to win a series, it’s just not going to happen that way. We have to take it the other way, we need to win this first game, get off to a good start, and then take it from there.”

doughty on what a Ducks versus Kings playoff series means to Southern California:

“It’s huge. The Ducks and Kings have never met in the playoffs. Everyone wants there to be this rivalry between the two teams, and I feel like the players just don’t have that yet. Now that we’re finally going to play each other in the playoffs, it’s finally going to create a rivalry. No matter who you play in the playoffs it creates turmoil and creates battles.”

Coach Darryl Sutter on Drew Doughty:

“He came into this series with some time off. He’d been banged up and he got better as the series went along.”

Sutter on the critical moment in the second period:

“The penalty kill in the 2nd was critical. Jonathan (Quick) made one big save and that gives us momentum too.”

Sutter on the Sharks:

“We tried to win a series against a team that had home ice, and was ahead of us all year in the standings. And we finally caught them.”
