Murray postgame quotes

Terry Murray’s postgame thoughts…

(on the result…)
MURRAY: “I thought we played well enough to win today. We’re playing well. We didn’t think we played well in Phoenix, but we played well enough to win today. We just need to keep going with the same thing.”

(on the difference in the game…)
MURRAY: “We did everything that we wanted to do, as far as managing the puck, getting it in, getting good forechecks, cycles, lots of shots. I think we had 30-plus shots on net. We didn’t give up much at a critical time of the game, in the third period. I think they ended up with three shots in the third period, only. So you’ve got to reinforce that part of it. We’ll have to check better. Obviously the power-play goal is, again, that’s unbelievable bad luck. They go to clear, dump the puck in, it hits the shaft of Frolov’s stick, breaks his stick, pucks goes in, he comes to try to get a new stick, and does get a new stick, and as he’s recovering back into the zone, it’s in the net. Those are things we have to work through. It happens, and it always works out in the end. You’re going to get your breaks.”

(on the play of Parse and Purcell…)
MURRAY: “(Parse) had good jump and he played an intense game for the duration of the game, which is something that he has not been doing. He’s been playing very well, leveling off, dropping off, and tonight I thought his game was really good. Obviously to be able to do what he did late in the third period, he was on his toes and skating and jumping. Purcell, I thought his game was pretty good. The line was effective. They had a lot of good things going in the offensive zone. They generated some great scoring opportunities and shifts, duration in the offensive zone. He’s a part of the line, and you’ve got to give him his marks for being a part of it.”
