Alain Vigneault said had the Derick Brassard, Martin St. Louis and Mats Zuccarello line scored on one of three scoring chances in yesterday's 1-0 loss to the Sharks, the entire dynamic of the game would have been different. The head coach said he's been pleased with the team's play despite the lack of results, especially from that trio.
After practice, Vigneault fielded questions from reporters about the status of Anton Stralman, who did not skate Monday, any possible lineup changes for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa, the play of Martin St. Louis, on what a goal early in yesterday's game would have meant the rest of the way, finding ways to win hockey games, his initial impressions of Ryan Haggerty and more.
