LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Drew Doughty never hesitates to say what the rest of the Los Angeles Kings are only thinking, and the star defenceman's mind was already on a third Stanley Cup title while his teammates celebrated their second on the ice behind him.
Doughty said the Kings were "going to want to win it again" Friday night after the Kings' double-overtime, Cup-winning victory over the New York Rangers.
With two NHL championships in three years, the Kings are building a hockey dynasty in an unlikely place. Hollywood's team is hardly the most glamorous in the league, but the Kings' commitment to hard work, team defence and playoff excellence puts them in position to contend for years to come.
The Kings have only three unrestricted free agents, including late-season acquisition Marian Gaborik.
