Coach Maurice – Status of Jacob Trouba. His thoughts on the Pavelec nomination for the Bill Masterton Award. His thoughts on the Byfuglien suspension. On the heavier minutes that Trouba and Myers are going to see. Does he believe in a “must win” prior to an elimination game? Having players with different mentalities in the room. Does Byfuglien owe the team an apology for putting himself into that situation? On facing the Canucks. Is there an instance that he can think of Pavelec displaying ‘sportsmanship’? Are the games now tougher at this point in season so tight ones get away as opposed to need to overcome?
“I’m going to protected my guys and see them in the best possible light. Alain Vigneault wanted the electric chair and I’ve got a lot more time for Dustin than that.”
“What Dustin Byfuglien owes this team is for that Calgary game to be the best game that he can possibly play”
