Murray's meeting with Quick

As he said he would, Terry Murray met with goalie Jonathan Quick after Friday’s practice. Quick earned the overtime victory over Dallas on Thursday, his sixth win of the season, but allowed four goals on 21 shots, including three third-period goals that allowed the Stars to erase a 4-1 deficit. Murray previously said that he wanted to address Quick’s concentration level, and on Saturday morning, Murray shared some details of his meeting with Quick…

MURRAY: “A goaltender has to give you the stops that are clearly the routine stops. I think his concentration is off at times. It’s the on-the-puck, the battle, the attitude of, `OK, that was a soft one. I can close the door here, I know how to do that, I know how to compete at a high level’ – which he showed me last year. The other thing, on the technical side – and I don’t want to get too much on the technical side with the goaltenders because we have two goaltender coaches that take care of that – but he’s not on the puck. He’s on the shooter’s hands and on the shooter’s body at times. So he’s not on the proper angle.

“I think the fourth goal, clearly anybody who was watching the game could see that it was two left-hand shots coming up the ice, drop pass, he never changed his angle and he was lined up on the shooter’s body. That’s why the puck goes into the net about eight inches inside the post whenever that happens. That’s the one technical part of the game that I talked to him about.’’
