Murray postgame quotes

Postgame quotes from Terry Murray…

(on the success of the first line…)

MURRAY: “I’m sure they feel good about it. They worked hard at it throughout the training camp and through the practices, to figure out where each other is going to be and how to play with each other. As they get through the games here, it’s nice to get some results. They’re spending more time together and trying to get to the next level.’’

(on the team’s rebound after the first-game loss…)

MURRAY: “There’s a few things we have addressed. It’s not necessarily because of losing opening night. You’re always working at your play without the puck. You want to improve on the checking part of the game. The special teams, in this care in particular the PK, has gotten much better since that first game. But with a group of young players, and new players that come into the organization, the biggest thing is just spending time together, practicing and getting some chemistry developed.’’

(on Doughty’s play, two days after his injury…)

MURRAY: “It’s amazing how that goes in sports. You see the guy make the big play in baseball to end the inning, he’s the next guy that comes up to bat. Doughty, to me, is a real hockey player. There was no way he was going to miss any time. He’s always, `I’m fine, I’m good, I’m ready to go,’ with that attitude all the time, and he ends up playing a good game and scoring what ends up being the game-winning goal. Just a great effort by a young guy.’’

(on the third-period poise the Kings showed…)

MURRAY: “I saw some really good penalty killing here tonight. That’s a special team that’s come a long way in a short period of time. I’m seeing guys really sacrifice themselves to block shots. A lot of that here in the third period tonight. The other part that’s really getting much better than last year is the communication that’s going on on the bench, to keep everybody ready and sharp, keep identifying parts of the game and situations that pop up in critical situations like that. It’s just great awareness that’s being brought to the next shift by people that, last year, maybe are not saying as much.’’
