Coach Maurice:  On the group being in good spirits.  What were they trying to accomplish with today’s practice?  On the confidence his group is feeling right now.  On the maturity of Patrik Laine’s game.  Does he need a pep talk when he isn’t scoring?  How has Mark Scheifele handled the addition of Laine to the line?  Was there any fear when he removed Wheeler from Scheifele’s line?  Assessing Wheeler in the middle.  How has Nathan Beaulieu handled making up for lost time?  Why has it been a good fit for Nathan Beaulieu with the Jets?
