Murray postgame quotes

Terry Murray’s postgame thoughts…

(on whether he knew Bernier was 0-5 in shootouts in the AHL…)
MURRAY: “Some things are best not known. (laughs)”

(on Bernier’s game, particularly rebound control…)
MURRAY: “He’s a very talented young man, and he has worked hard this year to get his game to a good level and having good success. The opportunity and the preparation came together here tonight, and I really liked what I saw.”

(on whether he thought Bernier was nervous…)
MURRAY: “I didn’t have a sense of that. The nice thing about Bernier, in my mind, is that he had a taste of the NHL two years ago. He had a half a dozen games and that, to me, is a nice experience to go through. Go get organized, get your game in place and be ready when your next opportunity comes up.”

(on taking Bernier back to L.A….)
MURRAY: “It makes sense to take him back, and just make sure that everything is good with the Quick family. We’ll address things tomorrow.”

(on a big win in the playoff race…)
MURRAY: “Well, this was a game in hand against Phoenix, for us, and it ties us now with them, even in games. So the two points were very big. Your goal is to make the playoffs at the start of the year, and each time you are able to put a point up — two points tonight — it’s heading toward accomplishing your goal.”

(on Modin’s goal…)
MURRAY: “A great shot. It’s a big-bodied guy. Modin is so big and so strong that once he gets his position established in front of the net, you’re not going to be able to move him. It doesn’t matter who you are. He gets into that tripod like that, and defending players are just going to have to make adjustments in their situations like that. Great shot, great tip.”

(on Williams’ game…)
MURRAY: “I liked it. I thought he played pretty good. He handled the puck quite well, comfortably. Tried to do his normal things with the puck in the offensive zone. I was pleased with what I saw.”
