Bryan Little: Does he feel up to speed? What will it take to get the power play going? “Needing movement”. Importance of this next game.

Paul Maurice: Is there anything about Laine that surprises him? Ever seen an 18 year old have a year like this? Is the team “up to speed”? Difference in Adam Lowry’s game from last December to this December? On Adam Lowry going to the Moose and then making his way back to the big club. More production from the backend. On the penalty kill. On Nikolaj Ehlers game. On changing up the power play.
