Coach Maurice – Update on Perreault. What is the early part of this week like for him? What do they have to do well to match up against Anaheim? What are chances Perreault will play in Game 1? How rough and tumble is he expecting the series to be? How long does he expect it to take to develop bad blood/rivalry? When was the last time he has had three full practices before a game? What is most important thing he will tell his team about playoff hockey? The role the young players have played and will in this series. How important has the leadership been in helping the young players develop? Is he comfortable going to California without the title of “underdog”? So he likes the angle of being the “underdog”. Having good goaltending heading into the playoffs. What is biggest difference with team since last time they saw the Ducks? Adversity helping at this point in the year. What is biggest advantage to being “battle tested” before playoffs begin? What did it mean to have all the extra depth as they get ready for playoffs?
