Terry Murray postgame quotes

(on winning games on consecutive nights…)

MURRAY: “The two games, back to back like this, they’re important games. Early in the season, the points are always important, but I thought the game last night, to go in and play well in that building after losing opening night, and the same here tonight. The game in Columbus, we were not happy with how it went for us, so coming out early, starting with the way we finished the game last night, and getting the first goal, was important. The game was what you want, what you ask for, and to come right back with the second goal a few minutes later, that was a really good thing.”

(on the reason for the recent strong play…)

MURRAY: “It’s hard to put your finger on any one thing. I think our special teams are getting better. Our penalty killing, in particular, that always gives you good energy, and I’ve always said that that if penalty killing can lose you a game, it can also win you a game. I think that the penalty killing is really starting to dig in and get the job done. And we’re scoring some goals. We’re coming out, at the start of the game, and scoring the first two goals in the early part of the first period. That helps everybody relax. That helps you get to where you want to go, as far as a structure and system, and moving your feet and getting things going in the other zone. We’re starting to figure that part out now.”
