Coach Speak
Boston Bruins Head Coach, Dave Lewis

On killing penalties:
"Our power play has been one of our strengths all season long. Tonight (it was, too), along with the penalty killing, because the referee’s standard was really tight. Edmonton getting four in the first and us getting four in the second…It was the difference in the hockey game. Your best penalty killer is usually your goaltender and Timmy was on his game. Guys were blocking shots. It was a good team effort on both sides of that equation."

On Andrew Ference:
"I thought he had an excellent first game. He had some big time hits on one of their key players, Ryan Smyth. He used his body really well. He has composure, poise…I saw a lot of that. And he won a lot of battles down low in the trenches. I think that is one of his strengths."

On Patrice Bergeron’s injury:
"We’re going to see tomorrow how he is and then go from there…It happened sometime in the first period and he fought it and fought it."

On Marco Sturm:
"He’s been hot. He’s been really dangerous. He’s skating well. He’s seeing the ice well. His shot is on fire. And he’s going in areas where the puck seems to be going in. Even on the disallowed goal Bergy made a great pass and Marco was there in full stride and the goalie had no chance. In my opinion I thought it should have counted…[Trade] rumors are just rumors."

On Petr Tenkrat’s performance in the power plays:
"For the last couple of months we have changed the scheme of the penalty killing. We are trying to put a lot of down ice pressure. So we’re looking for guys who can chase and put down ice pressure. He’s such a strong skater and he’s a veteran guy, so that’s how we arrived at that. He’s done a really good job. (With Primeau’s departure) we had to find somebody and use somebody in a different situation and that’s one of those opportunities I talk about."

On Glen Murray:
"He skated hard today, in the morning. We’re going to wait and see how he is tomorrow…We probably won’t make an evaluation until the morning skate in Long Island to see if he is ready to go. I think we’re going to try and push him a little bit more tomorrow. If his body responds then maybe he can play [on Thursday]. If not, we don’t want to be in a situation where we hurry him back and then lose him for two-three weeks."
