Coach Maurice: How rewarding was that game? Play of the top line. Were they aware of the score in the Nashville/Chicago game and did that impact them? Getting going in the 2nd period. Thoughts on the St. Louis Blues? How fun will the first game be on home ice? On the importance of home ice. How did the Blues change when Jordan Binnington took over the net?
