(More) Murray postgame quotes

(on the explanation he got after Prospal’s reviewed goal…)

MURRAY: “No explanation, really. It’s just a reviewed goal by the league office.’’

(on whether a whistle is reviewable…)

MURRAY: “I think it was just an unfortunate break for us, that’s all. My understanding of it is that it’s not a reviewable situation. The referee on the ice makes the call. He waves it off, the whistle blows and there’s no goal and it’s not reviewable. But even with that, there’s still half the game to go. There’s plenty of time and opportunities for us, on the power play, to get things back, and we didn’t capitalize.’’

(on the strategy playing the Rangers…)

MURRAY: “Well, we didn’t really change our strategy from the Islanders game or the St. Louis game. We wanted to get in, get a forecheck established and try to generate an offense by getting some pucks to the net. I thought we did a great job of it. The Rangers have a dynamic team. That goal that Gaborik scored, that’s a world-class kind of a goal. You get those great players in open spaces, and they make plays.’’

(on whether he thought the Kings outplayed the Rangers in the second period…)

MURRAY: “Definitely. The second and third periods. We were on the puck, we had the puck possession, we made a lot of plays and we had a lot of offensive-zone time to do what we needed to do in order to tie the game. We just didn’t take advantage of it.’’
