LA v MTL: Coach Murray’s presser – comments on Dustin Penner

Dustin Penner returned to the Kings line-up today had the only goal for LA in a 2-1 loss to Montreal.

Dustin coach Terry Murray’s post game presser he had the following to say about the play of #25 today…

“I liked Dustin Penner today. He played well,” said Murray. “He dug in, he was skating in a real athletic position, his knees were bent, he was carrying the puck with authority, he was strong around the net, he scores a goal. I liked the way he played for the first time in three weeks. He just needs to build on it.”

If the NHL doesn’t assign the goal to somebody else tomorrow, that will stand as Penner’s first goal of the season.

More from Murray and the Kings locker room coming up quickly.

[UPDATE:  Murray and Stoll on the missed penalty (link)…Simon Gagne on the loss – ‘We kind of shut down’ (full quotes here)…and comments from the Canadiens locker room – including Carey Price and Brian Gionta (here)]
