That is about the only explanation I have for the fourth line tonight. Either that or one of the countless lightning in a bottle theories that he has tried and fizzled or failed for the past three seasons as head coach. Sometimes, a person will say something that is a short cut to thinking. What Terry Murray has done is a short cut to coaching. Think he would admit it? If so, I imagine…
Q: “Coach Murray, what led you to scratch Ponikarovsky and Moller and place Stoll, Penner and Westgarth on the fourth line?”
Doubt it. When such things make you scratch your head, remember…it’s the team you support, not the suit behind the bench and the two are very much mutually exclusive. GO KINGS GO!
