Coach Maurice – Initial thoughts on Trade deadline day. His thoughts on Scheifele (“not going to be any surgery required”). What is the official diagnosis? (MCL Sprain). What type of hole does that leave in this lineup? Will they look to bring someone up for tomorrow’s game? If things remain status quo what ripple effect does Scheifele injury have on team? Update on Thorburn (“day to day, questionable for tomorrow”). How do you manage the emotion of the team when you lose an important player like Scheifele? Had a similar scenario like this before in his career? How can his leadership help team get over a game like last night. Time line on Scheifele’s injury? Thoughts on Halischuk’s first game back.
