Murray’s homecoming

Terry Murray has quite an association with the Philadelphia Flyers. It started in the 1975-76 NHL season, when Murray joined the Flyers. He later played for the AHL’s Philadelphia Firebirds and returned to the Flyers in the 1978-79 and 1980-81 seasons. He was the head coach of the Flyers for three seasons, starting in 1994-95, and returned as an assistant coach in 2003 until he was hired by the Kings last summer. Murray returns to Philadelphia tonight

MURRAY: “Well, there are lots of things. Playing here and playing with a great team, a team that made the Stanley Cup Finals… Then I got into the coaching side. There are lots of great memories, not only as a head coach but as an assistant coach. I saw a young group of guys coming together and taking over ownership of a team, and the good things that can happen when you play for each other. That is my vision of what will happen with the L.A. Kings. We’re learning how to pull together and learn together, and hopefully we’ll see this team go deep into the playoffs. What the Flyers did in the previous two years, it’s proof that it can happen.”
