Coach Maurice – On how Blake Wheeler is doing today. Thoughts after looking back on last night’s game. Is there a little more to the game against the Canucks than normal? On being able to leave the Blues game in the past and moving forward. Same lineup? Same goalie? How did he decide on Hutchinson for tonight? The change in circumstances since last time the team was in Vancouver. How does this March compare to last year? (playoff chase). On controlling emotions. Did the off ice drama (last time in Vancouver) represent a turning point? Pressure on the team. Is a pre-game talk from the coach different now? Challenges he sees from Vancouver. What has he seen the evolution in Pavelec’s game?
