I don’t know how great of a coach Paul Maurice is, but he is a Hall of Fame postgame comment coach.

It’s only one game out of a possible seven, after all.
So there’s no point in panicking right now, especially not after such a good game from both teams.
Well, that’s exactly what Panthers head coach Paul Maurice told reporters yesterday.

You’d think you’d hear a Hollywood actor being interviewed, but no, it’s just Paul Maurice making a spectacle of himself at a press conference.
“Everyone, just f***ing breathe”.
And in my opinion, he’s absolutely right. Why panic and feel sorry for yourself after ONE loss in a 4-of-7 series?
The Panthers’ players were frustrated at the end of the game, and seemed to have lost some of their composure and confidence.
In fact, Jonathan Marchessault said the Panthers players were “just goofing off” at the end of the game.

Marchessault added that his team was disciplined, so they weren’t going to get involved in the Panthers’ game, which meant disturbing them after the whistle.
“We’re going to win the right way.” – Jonathan Marchessault
Anyway, to get back to Maurice’s speech, I think it will be very beneficial to the Panthers players to calm them down and remind them that the series is still long.
They don’t need to panic and be tense right now.
They’ve overcome a lot along the way, and they’re confident in the team.
In any case, I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.
– What do you think?

A report that the #NHLBruins are exploring ways to keep Tyler Bertuzzi sparked a rather interesting trade rumor on Bruins defenseman Hampus Lindholm.
Here’s what BHN found out on that and more on the latest Bruins trade and free agent rumors:https://t.co/SMCJWtGDC3
