Neal Pionk

Coach Maurice:  Update on Mathieu Perreault?  How did he see that play?  Heading to the power play with the major penalty.  Importance of Wheeler scoring that goal because it forces teams to respect his shot.  Neal Pionk playing on the power play.  Logan Shaw getting his first since Feb 2018.  More confidence in this 4th line?  Securing their 20th win of the season.  The performance of Hellebuyck in the 1st period.  Wheeler handling the Flyers.

Health Update:

Coach Maurice didn’t have much of an update on Mathieu Perreault who left the game in the 2nd period after a brutal hit aside from “He’s moving around. I’m not saying he’s fine”.  He said and he expects to have an update on Monday after the veteran forward gets further testing done.  The Flyers Joel Farabee, who delivered the hit and got ejected, will be spending part of his Monday chatting with Player Safety.
