Coach Maurice pre-game (January 16, 2014)

Coach MauriceStarting goalie (Pavelec). How comfortable does he feel with the team?  Is simplicity the key in communicating with team?  Players appreciate of the message.  Does the last three days feel like 10 minutes or a month?  What are the benefits of having Buff up front?  When did Setoguchi arrive?

Coach’s Quotes:

On Buff as a forward: “He’s a dominant player.  He is all the things you love to have.  He’s fast and big and as I said the other day I think he is a lot more intuitive about the game than people give him credit for.  He sees things on the ice at times that the other four may not.”

More on Buff: “He does things that coaches will never be able to teach”

On Setoguchi: “I expect an A game out of him”.
