Coach Maurice: What does he make of that game? How big was Perreault’s goal? Update on Josh Morrissey and Nathan Beaulieu? Was there any scenario where he’d consider putting Brossoit back in? What can he say about the way his four D played in the 3rd? What goes through his mind when he sees Merzlikins gave up the puck late? Did he see Blake Wheeler try to “take over some shifts”? On his exchange with Brossoit. Grey Cup talk.
Coach Maurice was asked about the status of Josh Morrissey, Nathan Beaulieu and Laurent Brossoit. He indicated that Josh Morrissey “should be fine”, Nathan Beaulieu needs “further testing” and Laurent Brossoit “was cramping”.
