Phillip Danault, Drew Doughty & Vladislav Gavrikov 12/5/23 Post-Game Quotes:

Phillip Danault
On what he felt changed for the team between the second and third period

Just play harder and better and just play more of out game. We didn’t play well in the first two, maybe it’s because of the time change, but we definitely woke up in the third and that was better. We just took charge. All of us looked in the mirror and we got better.
On scoring three goals from the dirty areas on the ice
Yeah, be more direct. We tried to hit too many seams in the o-zone, and we started being direct and we scored some goals. Guys got tips and we just grinded. Some good shots [from the point] to tip and a great ending by Dewey.
On seeing Vladislav Gavrikov honored during the game by the Columbus fans
He’s a five-star d-man, like I’ve said the since the beginning. He’s been outstanding for us. He’s doing so many good things, it’s crazy, one of the best [defensive] sticks I’ve seen in my life, that’s for sure. To be recognized by the crowd, I’m not surprised.

Drew Doughty
On the importance of puck possession in overtime, leading into his goal

Yeah, it was a good draw, a good battle to get it back to me that’s a big part of the game. The entire 60 minutes, faceoffs are so important and our centers always do a great job, but it’s just a great comeback, that felt amazing. We didn’t have our good stuff for two periods and then we had a great start to the third and just rolled with it.
On what he felt changed for the group between the second and third periods
Well, we did exactly what the coach told us to do, which was get pucks back to the point. They had five down low, get a shot through, guys to the net, get a tip on it, get rebounds, don’t try to score from the top. That’s exactly what we did on that first shift and we just kept doing that for the whole third period.
On the Kings tying the all-time NHL record for consecutive wins to start the season
That’s amazing. I don’t think any of us are too worried about a record, we’re just coming in here to try and win games, but that’s awesome. We love playing on the road. We have a very strong team, we have full belief in every player on our team.

Vladislav Gavrikov
On getting a special moment with the fans in Columbus

Like I said before, that was a special game for me. First time coming back here and the fans treated me always nicely, I always tried to give it back. That was such a warm welcome, I really appreciated that. All of us having some good memories.
On turning things around during the third period to force overtime
We started playing more direct, tried to put some shots on net and we just got rewarded. So, it wasn’t great for us obviously, the first two periods, that wasn’t our standard, but we could turn the dial up and change momentum.
On getting shots through from the point during the comeback
I should be like that all the time, if you have a chance to shoot it. You don’t have to try to be fancy, sometimes it’s the best option to put it on net and try to find it. It’s not going to work every time, so sometimes you have to find the puck in the crease.
