Coach Maurice: What was the difference in the series? Did they run out of gas? Was the series lost at the end of game 5 with how it ended? On the first couple of Blues goals and goalie interference. Trying to explain the 2nd period. The desperation they showed in the 3rd. How tough was it to start the game the way they did. On the high expectations of the Jets this season and going out in the first round. On Ehlers playing tonight. Was there something missing down the stretch? On things that didn’t get done.
