Terry Murray’s quotes on Bernier from post-game presser

Following tonight’s 3-0 loss to the Devils, Kings coach Terry Murray said the following in his post-game presser…

(Overall game recap): “Tonight is about turnovers. All three goals that New Jersey scored ended up being plays that we had possession of the puck and we just don’t execute and then they come right back at us and they’re scoring. The bottom line again is that your best players on New Jersey – take a look at the scoresheet — they’re the guys that determine the outcome of the game. We need to do better. Our best players need to be better players in order to win games in this league. We’re just not on top of them.”

(Play of Jonathan Bernier): “Bernier was fine. Bernier I thought made some big stops. We gave up some quality chances in the first period. He played well. This was not about the goaltending. This is all about managing the puck and turnovers and giveaways that ended up being very easy goals against.”

(On Bernier’s confidence after another loss): “As a young goaltender, you’re always on top of and watching closely how his mechanics are and how aggressive he is in his play. Over the course of time, he’s always shown me the ability to deal with what’s going on.”

(On any possible regrets about staring Bernier) “You can dissect this whole thing any way you want.”
