Terry Murray postgame quotes

On the third-period penalty killing…

MURRAY: “There were some big blocks on the PK out there again. That’s the desperation that you have to show when you’ve got a group of guys like they can throw out there.

It requires the goaltender and I thought Quicker was real good there tonight with a couple huge stops, again the blocking of some of those point shots. There’s that desperation that is very contagious, and hopefully we can just build on this.’’
