Maintaining the momentum?

Terry Murray talked today about trying to sustain the momentum built before the all-star break…

Question: Dustin Brown talked about how those three games before the break were so important to the season. Since you got five points in those six games, where does that leave you heading into the second half?

MURRAY: “We’re kind of in the same scenario. The must-wins are there. Every game we play has to be approached as though it’s a playoff-type game. When you have that type of a desparation, you figure it out and you just go and play the right way, and play with structure and play incredibly hard. Or sometimes you’re afraid to meet the challenge. I think that what I saw in those three games was, we stood up and did a great job with team play. That’s the kind of carry-over that we need after this break here, to follow up with the same effort every night. I think the players understand that. They’re talking about it. We have talked about it individually and we have talked about it as a group. Right now, the attitude toward the last 36 games is really good, so we’ll see how it goes.”

    Hopefully they can start the second half of the season on the right foot. Chicago played a tough game last night in Anaheim and we have had 8 days off since the game in Colorado… hopefully they can play like its a playoff game and wear the Blackhawks down.

    Its always important to play with energy and intensity, but extremely important when the opponent is in a back-to-back situation!!

    Cheers,
