The Kings’ “magic number” for the playoffs was brought up to Terry Murray today. Is he aware of it? Does he care about the countdown?
MURRAY: “I care, but I’m not aware of it. I don’t look at the standings every day. I do look at them. It’s not like the first thing I do in the morning is get on the computer and look at the standings in the Western Conference. I’m focused on the game. We’ve got to bounce back from the loss we had against Nashville and did not play well, to a game that’s going to be a very intense game against Chicago. They’re one of the premier teams in the game, and we have to get ourselves back on pace, back on track again, to play the game the right way. It’s the positioning and execution, things we’ve done very well.”
