Shane Doan Just As Strong As Dustin Brown In Game 1

There’s been a lot of talk during Game 1 about the dominant play of Dustin Brown, and it’s all absolutely deserving, but his counterpart wearing a ‘C’ for the Coyotes is doing his best to keep Phoenix in this game.

Doan has been an absolutely monster in Game 1. He’s winning all kinds of puck battles, he’s unreal on the forecheck and around the net — doesn’t matter which net, really — Doan is the last person the Kings want to see in their face. He’s hit a number of Los Angeles players both in the play and behind it, and it certainly looked like he cross-checked a Kings player up near the throat in a late third-period scrum.

Doan has never been this deep in the playoffs. He’s not leaving anything on the ice now that he’s here.
