Shootout philosophy

Here’s what Terry Murray is thinking when it comes to shootouts.
“A few years ago you didn’t have a choice. The board of governors put in the new rule that the home team has the choice, thinking that if you score first the opposing team has the pressure on them when it comes down to the last shooter. It’s a philosophy. Obviously it can go both ways. I like to shoot first. We have confidence in our players that we can get out and get the lead and put the pressure on the other team. It didn’t work tonight, but it will in the future.”
