Coach Maurice:  Update on Blake Wheeler and Nathan Beaulieu?  How did he approach the day?  How does he look at that last play of the game which led to the goal against?  Is there a difference in Connor Hellebuyck this season?  Is the focus with 13 games left trying to eliminate those high-danger chances?  With the offensive talent of this team is simplicity one of the toughest things to combat?  How is he seeing teams defend the Jets differently?  On Nikolaj Ehlers owning his mistake.  Anything new on the three injured D?
