"Every player has the same accountability. He'll be fine. He takes that stuff to heart and we expect he'll be one of the better players (Saturday). That's the way it's been in this locker room all year." -- Rangers' Brad Richards on Marian Gaborik
GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Lesson learned, says Marian Gaborik.
"It was what it was, obviously," the Rangers' 41-goal scorer said Friday after practice. "I have to do a better job there on their second goal."
Gaborik is referring to his inability to clear the puck out of the Rangers' zone with 1:58 to go in the second period of Game 2 Wednesday. He couldn't do it, so Devils defenseman Bryce Salvador was able to keep the puck in and seven seconds later Ryan Carter scored the game-tying goal on a deflection from in front of Henrik Lundqvist.
