Coach Maurice: Status of Adam Lowry. Moving Andrew Copp to centre. Impact of Matt Hendricks in the 1st period. What he saw from Jack Roslovic to merit more ice time in the 3rd period. Temptation to keep Roslovic in even when Lowry comes back. On what it has meant to be playing so well at home. Two effective power play units. More on the Jets power play. On Copp’s role. On the Jets play ramping up post New Year. Thoughts on Tobias Enstrom’s game.
