Kings’ Doughty finally free from burden of big expectations

In the playoffs, he has shined at both ends of the ice with three goals, nine assists and a plus-12 rating through Game 2 of the final. Doughty said he’s at the top of his game when having fun, and that’s happening now.

“I know in order for our team to be successful, I got to be the best defenseman on the ice every night. Even though I kind of put that pressure on myself, I’m having fun,”he said. “I’m enjoying coming to the rink every day, being in this moment, in the spotlight in the Stanley Cup Final.”
