Murray talks lineup choices

Here’s what Terry Murray said, after today’s morning skate, about the two choices he made today: to put Justin Williams on a line with Jarret Stoll and Ryan Smyth, and to play Kevin Westgarth in place of Oscar Moller…

(on the Smyth-Stoll-Williams line…)
MURRAY: “That’s a line that’s been together for a bunch of games this year. They’ve played very well for us, actually, for quite long stretches of the season. We’ll get them back together today.”

(on keeping Westgarth in the lineup…)
MURRAY: “We know it’s going to be a real revved-up series, a real hard series. Everything I read, from the San Jose players talking, it’s going to be a bit of a gong show, with fighting. I’m reading about Clowe’s bloody nose and Ben Eager all over the place and Mayers fighting. So we’re going to gear ourselves up for that kind of a game. We’ll keep Westgarth in the lineup. That’s the way they’re setting it up, so we’re going to be ready to battle.”
