Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty expressed his unhappiness towards his teammates. He believes that a group of Los Angeles Kings are focusing on individual success over the team amid a miserable run. The side has endured 12 of their past 14 games and expressed his distaste towards the team for not being on the same page.

The Kings conceded four goals to nil to the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday and endured a lose for the fourth time in their last six games following an eight-game losing streak.

“I think we got guys in this room who are too worried about themselves, and worried about their points, and worried about stuff like that,” Drew Doughty said after Wednesday’s loss, per TSN.

“We get a 3-1 lead tonight, and guys start thinking it’s a cookie night. We stopped playing the way we know how to play, have an awful second period, then aren’t much better in the third. It’s about the team, it’s not about yourself, and a lot of guys on this team need to realize that.”

“It’s felt like the bottom-out for a while now,” Drew Doughty said. “It’s frustrating not getting these wins. We’re trying to stay positive, we’re trying to get back to having fun out there and play our game, but it’s hard to do that when you’re on a streak like this. This has been a struggle for us, and the only way we’re going to get out of it is if we get everybody’s 100% effort, everyone playing for the team and each other.”

Los Angeles Kings has been struggling, combined with the Edmonton Oilers’ 14-game win streak, and has dropped the Kings into the top wild-card spot in the Western Conference. It comes after owning a Pacific Division seed for much of the season. It has been noted that The Kings are now two points back of the Oilers with an extra game played and are 13 points behind the first-place Vancouver Canucks.

Los Angeles Kings are set to play their next game on Friday against the Colorado Avalanche.
