"You can do so many good things to try and get confidence, to try and get a good feeling in here but in the end, it comes down to winning games," said Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who made 23 saves. "We have had a couple of games now where we have been close, it was just a matter of time. Finally, we get the two points here, take a deep breath and then we go after another two points Monday."
"There's going to be a couple guys that I know who are going who maybe would not have had an opportunity to play in the Olympics ever," Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said. "I'll be pulling for them, but it's almost going to be like a world juniors situation where you're rooting for your team and you're rooting for your country, but you wish you were there to participate. It's going to be cool to see them in that light, but I wish I was there with them."
