Moving things around

Here’s what Terry Murray said today about some of his lineup choices for today…

(on Jack Johnson’s return from his arm injury…)
MURRAY: “We skated this morning, and he was able to go out and shoot and pass and get a feel for it. He’s in.”

(on using Harrold as a forward and an emergency defenseman…)
MURRAY: “I feel comfortable that he can step up on the right side and do a good job for us.”

(on using Purcell instead of Ivanans/Segal…)
MURRAY: “I need four lines playing today, with these back-to-backs. I really called on three lines, and those guys played their butts off last night. I need some depth tonight.”

(on using Moller on the third line last night, and dropping Parse…)
MURRAY: “I thought he did a pretty good job there last night. I just needed Parse to take it to a little higher level than what he did, so the change was made for that reason. I thought Oscar showed a lot of confidence, handled the puck and tried to do the right things playing on that line.”
