The two Ottawa offensive engines have gained the trust of coach Bryan Murray to play at times when defence is the team’s top priority.
“Last year, I wouldn’t have dared to do that,” Murray admitted.
It is appreciated by Heatley and Spezza.
“That’s nice to have from a coach,” Heatley said after practice on Tuesday. “We showed him that we can play safe and responsible.
“Me and Spez, we’re offensive guys. We came into the league as offensive guys and sometimes you get a rap as guys who take too many chances. But this year, we’ve learned to play a little tighter and he’s rewarded us for it.”
