Coach Maurice:  What does he take from that game?  What is the value of the split and making the Preds work for their win?  On processing this game.  More of an edge to the game.  Thoughts on Byfuglien’s game?  What’s it like managing a bench like that?  On pressuring the Nashville D.  Nine goals in a playoff game, unexpected in a playoff game?
