Following the Los Angeles Kings' 8-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Oct. 9, Drew Doughty made headlines when he said "a team like that should not be beating a team like ours 8-2."
"There's actually no way," he continued. "I know they had a lot of energy right off the bat because it's their home opener and they had their whole ordeal with the captain and whatever. But we had chances to come back, and then we just gave up a goal right after we scored a goal. It was a bad team effort by everyone on this team, I thought."
Doughty's remarks inspired a new Canucks team slogan.
Ahead of Tuesday's matchup against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Doughty clarified his comments while speaking to Canadian media for the second time since the drubbing in Vancouver. He believes his words were taken out of context.
