Sorry. Had some technical difficulties with the new computer system at the paper … so I missed most of the lockerroom.
Here’s a quote from Brian Boyle about his shot-blocking at the end of the second period:
“That’s old news for our team. That’s what we do. That’s a big part of how we defend. We get over there and we block it. That’s how we play. Everyone buys into that.”
“What’s good about this team, especially this year, is we expect a lot from each other in the room here. It doesn’t matter if you won two in a row or four in a row. We come back with the same effort, and that’s what we need if we want to be a top team. That’s where it starts. It was tough today coming back with two days off. I think the first half we were trying to get going and after that the speed clicked up a little bit and the intensity picked up.”
And Lundqvist on being first in the East:
“It’s a good feeling, no question. It doesn’t mean a lot, but it feels good. Obviously, it’s good for your confidence, knowing you’re doing good stuff here. We’re doing the right things and we’re winning. That’s what it’s all about.”
Here is the audio from John Tortorella’s post-game press conference:
