Coach Maurice – Kane won’t play tonight. Electing to go with Hutchinson. Is he comfortable riding the ‘hot hand’ or will he stick to his schedule? Is there no need to declare a number one? Fair to say they don’t have a #1 but instead a tandem? Without Kane, how does it impact the penalty kill? Also talks about who will fill Kane’s spot on the power play. On the quirky goals scored between Jets & Wild. Has he seen enough from the team to expect them to handle adversity? Is it time to acknowledge this team has more depth than previously thought? What has Byfuglien meant to the team during this stretch? Does he worry about this team being able to match emotional level moving forward? What does it take for this to manifest itself? Did he consider O’Dell as a call up?
