Murray postgame quotes

Terry Murray’s postgame thoughts…

(on whether there was anything positive to take from the game…)

(on his game thoughts…)
MURRAY: “I don’t want to take anything away from what Nashville did. They worked. They came into the building shorthanded, with some players out that are important players for them, and they worked hard.”

MURRAY: “They beat us, from the dots to the boards, in every area of the ice. They pulled the puck off the boards in our zone, making plays, took it to the net in the net. In the offensive zone, we were not able to get the puck stopped up. Our forecheck was inconsistent, and we were not able to pull pucks off the boards and make plays. I’ll tell you what, Nashville came in with an attitude and a game plan that was based on hard work and grit.”

MURRAY: We had our spurts, then we sputtered a little, then we had our spurts and then we were flat. You can’t play this game on skill alone. Emotionally, we didn’t have it here tonight.”

(on the flat play at the start of the game…)
MURRAY: “That’s why I called a timeout. I was prepared to do what I did. I was looking for it, and if it wasn’t there I was going to call a timeout. I’ve been around enough to know that it happens after a couple emotional games. The challenge here has to come from within the locker room.”
