Coach Maurice: Did he feel his team picked up where they left off from last night? What did he like from his third line? Did he feel the team handled the day the right way today? Update on Mathieu Perreault? Thoughts on Connor Hellebuyck? The start of the hockey game. Hockey Gods. How important was it, given everything this team has gone through, for this game not to get tied up? Play of Sami Niku.
Coach Berube: His assessment of the road trip. The fine line between winning and losing. Thoughts on their 2nd period. Trying to get back into the game after falling behind. Thoughts behind changing up the lines. Might he do more switching?
