Coach Maurice pre-game (January 31, 2014)

Coach Maurice –  Roster adjustments (Tangradi in).  Opportunity for him?  Is this a different hockey team?  On taking steps back.  Why does he do that (end of season reviewing best and worst game)?   Does he feel like he is getting the most out of his players?  Is the defensive group exceeding expectations?  Consistency makes a consistent player?  Will Eric O’Dell be back for tonight?  Blake Wheeler on the penalty kill.

Coach Quotes:

On Eric Tangradi – “I want to see what he is bringing to the table for our team.  The energy on the bench.  How does he make us better when he is in the lineup”.

On is this a different hockey team – “This is where we are, not who we are”.
