Coach Maurice – Does he have a home opener philosophy? Based on the changes to playoffs do central divisions match-ups become more significant? On importance of getting points early in the season. What does Chris Thorburn bring to the 3rd line? Did he notice a difference with the team on how they play on the road vs. home? How do they get to Pekka Rinne? Adding Byfuglien to the Wheeler/Scheifele line, do roles change? Does he see chemistry between Wheeler and Byfuglien? Working on players confidence.
