Coach Maurice:  Putting together a similar effort but getting a better result.  First goal a good example.  Thoughts on the play of third line.  First line rewarded for effort.  The frustration of last night potentially bleeding into today’s game.  Play of Josh Morrissey.  How difficult is it for an offensive player to go against instinct?  Did he feel that Hellebuyck had a “chip” on his shoulder coming into the game?  What has he learned about his team in the context of the division in the last three games?  Home record and what they’ve done inside Bell MTS Place.  .
