Doughty on Perry – ‘We’re going to have to do something about that’

Kings Ducks Drew Doughty
Drew Doughty had plenty to say after the Kings picked up their sixth straight post-season win in Anaheim on Monday night. Take a look…

On why he left the ice temporarily:

“Beauchemin two handed me in the back of the knee and there’s obviously no padding back there, so it just hit a nerve. Leg went numb, that’s it. It’s fine.”

On Matt Beleskey trying to hit him:

“No, I kind of tried to dodge the hit at the same time. I don’t really know if he was actually trying to make a big cheap shot at me or not. He was obviously trying to run me, there’s no doubt about that. I think Beleskey is a pretty fair player, I don’t think he was trying to hurt me or anything.”

On if Jeff Carter is aware that Corey Perry put water in his glove:

“No, I didn’t see it. I don’t think anyone knows about that. I haven’t talked to him about it yet, but that’s a little bit of Perry’s game. You see him get two shots at Quickie tonight. We’re going to have to do something about that.”

On getting two wins on the road:

“As much as it’s on the road, our fans were great. You can hear them just as long as their fans. Our fans did a great job of making it feel just as much as home as it could. But still, we could only dream of this really. We knew it was going to be tough to do. They might say that we don’t deserve it or what not, but it doesn’t matter. We’re up 2-0 going back to Staples and that’s exactly what we planned.”

On if the Kings accomplished everything they wanted to in the first two games:

“Yeah, I don’t see how we didn’t. We won two games and that was exactly our goal. I still don’t think we’re playing our best hockey, I think they’re playing pretty good. So I think we have a lot to improve on but that just takes some video and that just takes some better effort from every single one of our guys. We’ll be fine. We have to win one in Staples here now. We got to look forward to Game 3.”

On the possibility of the Ducks coming back in the series:

“Obviously we did that last round. We’re not taking anything off the gas pedal, trust me. Everyone here knows how hard it is to win playoff games and how easy it is to lose playoff games. Our mentality is this is Game 1 again, we just need to win one game right here and this is Game 3, go up 3-0 and take it from there. Just looking forward to that match up.”

On how many Kings fans were at Honda Center:

“It’s sweet. It’s really cool, actually. Our fans our great. You just look up in the stands and you maybe see one-third of the jerseys are Kings jerseys. It’s really cool and there support has been a lot of help, especially in these first two games. I know when we head back to Staples, they’re going to be even louder. Looking forward to that.”

On Marian Gaborik:

“He’s a good player. He’s very smart, he knows where to go. When you’re playing with Kopi and playing with other high-level guys that we have on our team, they’re going to find you. When it gets to him, he puts it in the net. He’s been playing great for us, he plays well both ways and we’re really, really happy to have him here.”

On how much of their success is from the defense and how much is from Jonathan Quick:

“I think it’s a lot of everything really. Our forwards played decent defensively, our D played decent defensively and I thought Quickie played decent, too. It’s a whole team effort. Quickie comes up with big saves when he needs to, like that one that goes off of dasher right to the slot. That’s a save you need your goalie to make, and Quickie always makes those for us. From there, we just need to clear up the traffic, clear up the rebounds.”

On how he thinks the Ducks are feeling mentally:

“I don’t think we really think too much about that. All we can control is us. Them mentally, whether they’re down or whether they’re on a high- I’m sure they think they played two good games and they kind of got unlucky bounces. That’s probably what they’re thinking there and we’re fine with that. We’re just excited we’re up 2-0, we’re excited to go back to Staples and win a game there.”

On if he asked to play more minutes:

“No. The first period, their forecheck was giving our D some trouble, including myself. I wasn’t playing my best hockey the first period, but I turned it on after that. I think the coaches are just looking for who’s hot, who’s playing well at the time, who’s doing the right things and just putting whoever is doing that out there.”

On if he thinks the Ducks are playing dirty:

“I think a couple of shots at Quickie, I don’t know if they were dirty but they were definitely cheap shots. The ones on me, I don’t know, the slash, just kind of a bad bounce where he hit me. The other one, I don’t think he was trying to hurt me or anything.”

As for Carter, he had shared his thoughts on Perry previously – and they were some of the funniest quotes ever published on MayorsManor. Check out what he said here.
