    McLellan, Doughty, Kale Clage 12-21 Postgame Quotes

    Read more quotes and articles at Jon Rosen's Blog here


    Todd McLellan on tonight’s game, and the roadtrip as a whole:
    We’ll deal with this one first – Effort was there, pretty evenly played game, it could have went to either side. Both teams hit a few posts, there were moments where we checked really well, moments where they did. They got a break that went off Doughty’s pad and into the net and we didn’t earn one of those, so at the end of the night, we come out at the short end. Not disappointed in the effort or what was put into the game, we’re obviously hoping for a better result, but the trip as a whole has been a pretty successful one for us. Now, we’ve got to get on that plane and rest, take tomorrow to breathe again and play against a real good team.
    McLellan on if he felt that the Kings could have had 2 or 3 early on, when they only scored the one:
    Sometimes it feels that way. Tonight was, like I said an even game. We had some possession time, they rang a couple off the post, to me there was no defined territorial advantage to one team or the other. It was evenly played, both teams played well it was a well-played game. Our power plays, we didn’t really get a chance to get them going, they were in pieces, but so were theirs. I can’t think of anything that would swing one way or the other, other than a bounce off a pad.
    McLellan on Kale Clague coming into his NHL debut and playing his game:
    I liked the fact that he had the courage to bring his game to the arena, that’s the type of player that he is. He uses his legs, he’s able to jump up and create, he knows his strengths and weaknesses and he was able to check using those, so it takes a lot of courage to play your first game in the league and I thought he brought his skill set. We’re really happy for him.

    Drew Doughty on tonight’s game and the trip as a whole:
    I mean, I know we’re just trying to be positive, but I think that we blew last game and I think this game was there for the taking. I didn’t like our effort in the second period again. Yeah, I think we got points in every game except for one, so I mean that’s really positive, but I would have liked to see two points in a couple of the other games and I would’ve liked to see two points tonight. I don’t know, it’s a little bit frustrating. We need to learn to play with a lead and we need to play desperate when we have the lead and we were just punting pucks out of the zone…I’m more so talking about other games other than tonight, but tonight I think we could have won this one if we had played a little better overall.
    Doughty on if it felt like the Kings could have had a few goals in the first period, early second period:
    Yeah, yeah. I thought we could have had the lead after the first, and yeah we had some early chances and then they kind of took over. From after the first five minutes of the second period, they outplayed us, I thought and then we didn’t start playing until the last five or ten minutes of the third. That’s why we lost.
    Doughty on his impressions of Kale Clague’s NHL debut:

    I thought he looked good. He’s a really good skater, he’s got really good offensive upside, I thought he played really well. He’s a really young kid, he doesn’t have a ton of experience in pro yet, I think only one year, so I’m really excited to see what he can do. I thought he was really good tonight.

    Kale Clague on his first NHL game:
    Obviously, like you said, would prefer the win, but personally I thought I played well. I thought I was moving pucks well, skating well, some good o-zone chances, which I was happy about. I just want to keep building off of it.
    Clague on being confident and playing his style of game:
    Yeah, I felt confident. Obviously, second-year pro, a lot of work with Stutts in Ontario and I think it’s led up to this point. I felt confident with the puck, I thought my game’s been on a good track leading up to this point, so once I got the nerves out I thought I played like myself out there.
    Clague on his pairing with Sean Walker:
    It was good. Before the game, when I knew I was going to be playing with him, I thought we’d compliment each other well in terms of breaking pucks out and moving the puck. I thought tonight we did that. I thought, when we had the puck, we were really effective, so he’s fun to play with and I thought it went well.
    Clague on how the reality of his NHL debut compared to the dream:
    Yeah, it was cool, it was really cool. Like you said, I’ve been waiting my whole life, dreaming of this. It was cool to get the first one out of the way and now I just want to continue to get better and build off of it.
