Illegal Curve: Coach Maurice scrum from Bell Centre (audio). Getting his team’s energy level back. On Montreal being a special place to play. Buying more into his preaching this year more than it was last year? What does he most attribute Pavelec’s success to? How does he describe this team’s evolution? Is it a tougher sell for offensive players (Kane, Scheifele) to buy into a defensive system? What are the keys to pushing forward? Is there an advantage to being a team “under the radar”? What stands out about the Habs?
