To add to the ever-present Alexander Frolov debate, Terry Murray had high praise for Frolov’s game against Carolina, as well as Wayne Simmonds’ game. Simmonds had one goal and one assist and Frolov had two assists, and the pair combined on a great, important third-period goal. I thought Frolov’s play had taken a dip of late, but he also might have been dealing with the hip-flexor problem. Regardless, he was strong last night.
MURRAY: “Simmonds and Frolov played tremendous games last night, as good as they’ve played in the last several games. It’s hard to say that they were our best forwards, because everybody was good last night, but those two guys were really good. I’m very happy with their games. We had a review of the video this morning, in the team meeting before the practice, and highlighted some of their efforts. Heavy on the puck, great attitude, determination, taking it to the net, scoring big goals and just very responsible without the puck throughout the game. I’m very pleased with both efforts.”
