Carp has passed along some of the Rangers already, but all the duplicate players are different sound bites. Marc Staal and Daniel Girardi both talk about the unlikelihood of them scoring. Staal scored his first goal in 30 games and just the third of his playoff career. For Girardi, it was his first goal in 39 career postseason games and just his second in the last 45 games this season.
Girardi also talked about how the Rangers slowed down Erik Karlsson. A key to this series was their effectiveness against the 21-year old. He found out today that he was a Norris Trophy finalist, but it was bittersweet. The league’s leading scorer among defensemen was held to just one point this series — a goal in Game 2 that bounced in off Michael Del Zotto. Other than that, he had nothing to show for the most shots on goal of any player this postseason.
There’s also some audio of Daniel Alfredsson, who talked about retirement and offered the line of the night, one that really sums up the Rangers:
“They do a good job in their own end, trying to block shots,” Alfredsson said. “It feels like they have three goalies at times.”
