"I thought we showed some good resilience and getting the go-ahead goal with about 7 minutes left," Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi said. "It's too bad we couldn't hold it. Giving up the tying goal again with a minute left is tough to swallow. We have a couple days off now and then back to work."
"He made some big stops for us and kept it tight and we always know he's going to be there," Rangers defenseman Marc Staal said. "You knew they were going to push in their building in Game 1 and we have to find a way to answer in Game 2. Playoffs come down to a bounce and one shot here or there and Thursday we were on the wrong side of it."
