Murray postgame quotes

Terry Murray’s postgame thoughts…

(on whether he got an explanation from the officials on the Smyth non-goal…)
MURRAY: “No conversation.”

(on whether he disagreed with the call…)
MURRAY: “I think all of us, we’re going to have our opinion that it’s a goal. Ottawa is going to have their opinion that it’s not a goal. That’s the way it goes. You’ll get your calls sometimes. It will work the other way and, as they say, it comes out in the end, so we’ll just move on and get ready for Montreal.”

(on the non-call on the Carkner net dislodge…)
MURRAY: “If it’s not a goal then it’s a penalty. The player does pull it [the net] off. That’s just a play that you miss. That’s all. We had plenty of power-play opportunities, so I’m not gong to go there, or stay there, with that play. That was a real quick play. It would have been great at the time, but we had plenty of opportunities to get it back, and we’re not taking advantage of those situations right now. We had a power play with six minutes left in the game. It’s a critical time in the game, and we don’t generate very much off of it.”

(on whether he can tweak the power play…)
MURRAY: “We’ve got to take a look at it. I don’t know. Again, it comes down to just some execution. We were off. We were off in our 5-on-5 play and execution, and it’s carrying over to our special teams. It’s a total game, right now, that’s off-balance. I think it’s starting to come back. We outshoot them 30 to 19 tonight, so there’s good signs that it’s heading back in the right direction. I liked our recovery of pucks tonight. I thought we competed well. We’re still trying to be a little cute through the middle of the ice sometimes, on 5-on-5, and again it just shows on our power play. When we keep pushing in the right direction, I think everything will fall in place for us.”
