Courtesy of the Kings’ website, here are some quotes from Teddy Purcell, who addresses the biggest knock against his game (as addressed by Dean Lombardi on this blog last week…)
PURCELL: “With the new coaching staff, it is really big on defense and that checking part of the game and that is one of the areas I need to work on and when I was up here last time, I felt I got more comfortable with that and did a better job of being consistent but I went down and worked on some of those things and I’m being rewarded again up here. I think they know that I’m an offensive player. I just have to go out and do the checking side of the game and be good in my own zone and the offense will take care of itself.”
More quotes, from more players, can be found here. I’ll try to get Terry Murray on the phone before tomorrow’s game against Philadelphia, because that game probably has some extra personal significance to him.
