Back on track? - LA Kings Insider

Scott Parse’s season is back on an upswing. Parse had the first two-goal game of his rookie season on Monday in Minnesota, then scored a huge third-period goal on Tuesday to break a scoreless tie in Nashville. Terry Murray’s analysis of Parse’s game, though, has always centered more on consistency than scoring, and on Wednesday, Murray gave a thumbs-up to Parse’s overall game and said he will stay in the lineup tomorrow.

MURRAY: “His energy is really good. I think the pace of his game, shift after shift, has been consistent. That was a bit of a concern when he was here in the early part of the year, to follow through, and he has grabbed onto that very quickly now. I like the attitude away from the puck, his awareness, his responsibilities in the checking part of the game are getting better. Overall, playing the game at a higher pace, shift after shift, was a concern of mine early, and it seems to be evident that he’s getting it, and it’s there every game.”
