Brown turnaround?

One goal is just one goal, but the type of goal that Dustin Brown scored Thursday night — making a simple play, giving up the puck, going to the net — gives Terry Murray hope that more goals are in store for Brown, the former 33-goal scorer who now has 11 this season…

MURRAY: “That was a great goal, I thought. It started with the breakout and then it goes to the pass that Brown makes, entering the offensive zone, to Frolov. I think, in the past dozen games probably, you saw Brownie holding onto that puck and trying to do a lot of the 1-on-1 stuff, beating the defenseman or maybe just shooting the puck to the net.

“In this instance, he makes a great play. Now he brings other people into the attack, and that’s that give-and-go attitude and that support that works in the league. Now, with his attitude of going to the net, he’s a courageous guy and he never hesitates in bullying his way in and being ready for a return play. So that was a great goal, it was an important goal, obviously, for the game last night, and if that’s something that we start to see on a consistent basis from Brownie, that would really get his numbers back up to where they should be.”

Murray also tossed out this gem…

MURRAY: “I watched the Montreal game before that, and Cammalleri kind of puts the same kind of spin move. Maybe Fro was watching the game. I’m not sure. It was a good play.”
