Coach Maurice:  Update on Myers and Hendricks.  Rested up and ready to go?  How does he expect his team to match up to Chicago?  Does he see the added confidence in his group?  On bringing up a defenceman from the Moose.  Seeing the impact of the draft and develop plan this season.  How difficult is it as a coach to have a patient approach?  What has stood out to him from Ehlers game this season?  The Little effect on Ehlers and Laine.  Thoughts on getting Steve Mason back in the lineup.  How does he keep Matthias/Dano engaged?  Will he get Mason into a game this weekend?  On four divisional games.
