Murray postgame quotes

Terry Murray’s postgame thoughts…

MURRAY: “It was a nice run, a very nice run. Guys really dug in, through some very hard games, a long road trip, come from behind, a lot of playing hard for each other, a lot of perseverance through some difficult games there. To find a way to stretch the streak to nine was tremendous. Tonight, we rallied in the third period, but Anaheim brought their `A’ game here today and we didn’t match it. They were carrying the game to us. We were chasing it, in the first and second period in particular, and we didn’t manage the puck through the middle of the ice. Just too many times, we let them come back at us with a lot of speed of the transition.”

(on the status of Smyth and Scuderi…)
MURRAY: “Smyth is OK. He came back. That’s just a shot that you take playing in front of the net. Scuderi, he got hit by the flu. We’ll have a couple of days now before we play again, so that’s a good thing. He can hopefully regroup real fast.”

(on Drewiske’s game…)
MURRAY: “It’s been a long time since he’s played. When Scuderi goes out, he has to play and play quite a bit. So I think he started to feel better as the game went along. The pace of the game was pretty intense. They brought the best that they can bring and took it to us, so we spent a lot of time in our D-zone as a result of that. Again, he got better as the game went along.”

(on whether these games have a playoff feel…)
MURRAY: “Well, I thought (the Ducks) brought it, a playoff game. We looked like we made some mistakes, poor decisions, fatigue, emotional and mental. We just made some wrong decisions on some critical plays that they capitalized on. Hopefully the next time, we can match that.”
