"There wasn't much going on early in the game and we were slowed by penalties. I thought we started to do some stuff in the third. We'll just build on that." -- Rangers' center Brad Richards on his line's performance Friday
"He's going to be the guy upstairs on the headset. In the past we've had various people fill that role and now we're going to have a full-time assistant do it. His role is going to be helping out on the player-development side with the younger defensemen." -- Lindy Ruff
"Having something which nobody can put a finger and there were days where you feel like, 'Well, it doesn't hurt and nobody knows what it is, so it has to be better, right?' At the same time I felt like I wasn't moving anywhere and it was frustrating, especially because I am normally such a competitive guy and it was something that I could just push, push, push -- that had the opposite effect and I had to give myself time and back off. That was a tough situation."
-- Jonas Hiller
"It's so different for me to go to Gothenburg. … Now I'm so focused on getting my game going and helping the team to win that I don't focus on the overall experience like it was last week. Now it's about doing your job. I remember this feeling and it's coming over me more and more." -- Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist

Those are tough places to win.
