Coach MauriceAssessment of the game.  On his rookies.  Keeping his team’s focus.  Using Buff on the penalty kill.  Watching Buff’s minutes?  Talk about the refs.

Coach Quotes:

On Scheifele – “I liked the way Scheifele scored that goal.  I think he probably took two hits before he scored the goal”.

On Trouba – “I think with Jacob Trouba he is going to continually refine that game where you won’t see him jumping in every time, but he will jump in at the right times, kinda the Lidstrom factor.  Make 90% of your game a 10 foot pass and the last 10% is what will make you great”.

On the rookies maturity – “There’s not a kiddie section in our locker room and we feed them.  They are just one of the guys for me”.

    Love the fact that h
    Maurice sees the rookies as just “one of the guys”. Treat them like men and they will produce like men.
