Murray postgame quotes

Terry Murray’s postgame thoughts…

(on Ponikarovsky’s play on the fourth line…)
MURRAY: “I kind of liked that line tonight. I might just keep it together for a little while longer and see if they can build on it.”

(on Ponikarovsky getting out of his “doghouse”…)
MURRAY: “You don’t have to be promoted to another line to get out of it. He played well. On the first goal that (the line) scored, he had the puck on his stick for as long as he’s had it for quite a while. Holding on, using his body, speed, trying to make things happen in the offensive zone. So it was a real solid game from him and the line.”

(on the scoring outburst…)
MURRAY: “We got some balanced scoring here tonight. We needed to get something going. We needed to bounce back from a game that we were not happy with, and everybody started the right way and did the right things throughout. What I liked was that through the game, even in the third period, we stayed on page and executed and work on your game. There was a consistency throughout the 60 minutes that was good for us.”

(on Bernier’s game…)
MURRAY: “It’s been a while since he played. It’s very hard to come into those situations, but he played good. Nashville has got a lot of firepower. They’ve got a lot of big guys on the blue line who can really pound the puck. You’ve got to work to find (the puck). They get traffic, and he worked hard here tonight. It was a good win.”

(on jumping on a Nashville team that played last night…)
MURRAY: “We all go through those times, when you play the night before and you’re a tired team. We talk about it, absolutely. You’ve got to come out with a good start, and Brownie made a powerful play, just carrying the puck down the right wing, getting it to the net to give ourselves an opportunity to get something happening. That was the right attitude, that was the right start and, again, we stayed on page for the 60 minutes.”
