Scott Laughton Looking To Raise His Energy Level Following The Flu

Saturday, March 14, 2015
Back in the AHL, Scott Laughton looking to lead Lehigh Valley to postseason birth.
Writing an overflow post-game reactions story from last night's 2-1 shootout win over Providence. If you missed last night's recap with quotes from Scott Laughton and Rob Zepp, here it is.

Below, some post-game thoughts from head coach Terry Murray and words from Laughton on getting back to playing at a high level.

Head coach Terry Murray post-game thoughts:
It's a good game. Providence is a very good team, you take a look at their goals against - they make it pretty tight especially in the neutral zones. This was a real important two points for us. It's a team that is ahead of us and a good team that forces to you to focus, forces everybody to come into the game and participate. I thought our team did a pretty good job of that.
Cashing on on late 1st period power play:
Right in the dying seconds, and that's what you have to do. You got your critical moments in the game and that was one of them and we capitalized on it,
Low scoring games expected down the stretch:
We generated some really good looks in the third period 5-on-5, we had lots of zone time, some great cycles going on. The defense was jumping in. Credit their goalie, he made a couple big stops in the overtime. It was exciting, especially when you get to the 3-on-3. That's one of the most exciting parts of the game when you get your skill guys going back and forth. I think the fans love that kind of a look.
Scott Laughton on re-adjusting to the AHL:
Definitely not the way I wanted to play the past couple of weeks, and definitely didn't help having the flu and trying to get my energy back and stuff like that. That's not an excuse, just I have to play better hockey. I thought tonight was a better game for me and I just have to keep working moving forward.
Laughton on keeping the wins coming on the road tonight in Bridgeport:
We have to be good in the neutral zone and move pucks north. Just keep playing simple hockey, that's the way we are going to win games. If we complicate it for ourselves, we are going to beat ourselves. Just play stingy D and try to get on them. You get on the bus and you enjoy the win and sleep on it then go right back to work tomorrow. Tomorrow night is a huge game for us.
