An interesting quick little note from practice today. After all the players got off the ice, Terry Murray called a group of players — I believe it included Brown, Greene, Kopitar, O’Donnell and Stoll — into the coaches’ office for a chat. After, Murray said they’re periodic talks he has with the captains/leadership group. What do they talk about?
MURRAY: “We cover stuff that I would like to talk about. I ask the players if there’s anything on their minds about anything. Travel, hotels, Christmas break time — with our exceptionally long break that we’re going to have, kind of preparing the mind for that — and just reviewing how everything has gone so far, with the number of games we have played and the two East Coast trips, just talking about that, if there’s anything we can do better. Just general stuff that, I think, is real important for a group to be a part of.”
