Rick Carpiniello at the Rangers Report has numerous post game quotes…
Martin Biron on the bad-hop goal to start:
“You know what? The bad hop, if I’m 100 percent in the game at that point, it doesn’t matter. I probably shouldn’t have come out to play that puck. I know better than to come out to play a puck off the glass here at the Garden, and you guys realized later on in the game I wasn’t coming out to play those pucks. I was letting them bounce and watching them bounce because that’s what you’ve got to do here. I’ve gotten caught a couple of times. But after that, obviously you’re a little unsettled. There’s no good ways, no bad ways, you’ve just got to find a way at the end.”
Derek Stepan on scoring the game tying goal:
“It’s definitely special. That’s a big-time goal, tying the game up, that was the first thought.”
Chris Drury on the faceoff on the tying goal:
“I was trying to win it. Every draw. We were all going to the net obviously and it was a big goal by Step. It was a good job by Rozy to get it all the way through.”
Brandon Prust on his goal:
“I wasn’t sure what he (LaBarbera) was doing on that play. I knew he was having trouble getting to it. I knew he was going to take a penalty (for playing the puck outside the trapezoid) or I was going to be on the puck. The goalie was in between decisions. It was good going into the third only down one instead of two. It’s a big difference.”
