In case you missed it Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Kings managed to get past the Calgary Flames with a 4-3 win, thanks to superstar defenseman Drew Doughty’s OT winner.

Just prior to gamete yesterday, Doughty refused to comment anymore on Tkachuk, but did say that “everybody knows” who the better player is between himself and Tkachuk.
And you know what?! Doughty put his money where his mouth is in last night’s game, scoring the OT winner and silencing the Calgary crowd… oh and then shouting obscenities at them.
In case you missed it on last night’s btoadcast, Doughty clearly says something that rhymes with, “Pluck my stick!” to Flames fans during his OT goal celebration.

One thing’s for sure… you can bet that Doughty will have a microphone in front of him after EVERY Kings loss this season.
