Harrold: Murray's `comfort' player
Peter Harrold moves up to right wing tonight, in place of Trevor Lewis, who had a minus-1 rating and zero points in two games. Harrold played on defense Tuesday night against San Jose and, by all accounts, did a credible job, with an assist and a plus-1 rating in 16 minutes.
Terry Murray explains the move, and what motivated it…
MURRAY: “I really liked his game on the blue line, so I’m going to make a change and put him on the right-wing side with Richardson and Ivanans, because I liked his game. … The other part of it, because of Drewiske — and he’s fine, but he got hit pretty hard on that play — and OD’s first game back, it gives me that seventh defenseman, a little bit more comfort from my side. That utility player, again.”
